Leaks are a regular thing in the smartphone industry partly because of the sheer number of devices and smartphone companies. In addition, the time it takes to develop a smartphone with somewhat identical specifications is considerably less. However, such leaks are somewhat spread out and rare when it comes to video games. This is both due to the long development time and the slightly controlled group during the development. However, it looks like some critical spoilers for the much anticipated “The Last of Us Part 2” have leaked. This leak surfaced months before the launch of the PS4 exclusive. Let’s check the details around “The Last of Us Part 2” leak.
