One of the hottest news in recent months was the leak of The Last of Us: Part II, of which numerous spoilers about the game circulated on the networks. It is possible that more than one has inadvertently “eaten” one of these spoilers, and even thinks they already know how the game will end. However, Neil Druckmann has made it clear that the end of The Last of Us 2 has yet to be revealed.
” There are so many false things out there,” explained the director of The Last of Us 2 in an interview with Eurogamer. ” We don’t want to go out there and correct any of them because that would spoil the game in some way. By saying what it isn’t, you somehow say what it is.” In this sense, Druckmann pointed out somewhat later that ” there are all kinds of theories about the end, but the end is not out there. You don’t really know how all things come together in the end.”
As part of the interview, the game director compared the situation with that of his other releases that were leaked. And here, as he did in the official April statement, he points out that the important thing is the journey and not the destination: ” The Last of Us had things leaked, with Uncharted 4 copies of the game were stolen from a truck before [the premiere] ] and people were uploading the ending soon. And those things didn’t detract anything after all, because there’s nothing like playing them. Nothing compares to being Ellie and feeling those moments, not only in the scenes but in the gameplay, the dialogues, the music, and the emotional effect it has on you. “
” And the story has been constructed in such a way that what matters is not the plot twists. It’s a matter of squeezing little by little and feeling the tension with the decisions that the characters make, ” says Druckmann. Therefore, it seems that fans of The Last of Us 2 will be able to breathe easily ahead of the premiere, although it never hurts to follow our advice to avoid spoilers on the networks.
