Unlike what emerged in recent days, the leaker who has disclosed various parts of The Last of Us 2 he is not an employee of Sony, much less of Naughty Dog.
The extent of this has been so wide that it has forced Sony to start an investigation to get to grips with it. According to the reported report by the Japanese company, the person in charge has been identified, but it would not be a former employee like how much noise so far. The motive for revenge due to the conditions of work in the US software house are therefore to be excluded. Clearly the name was not made public of the leaker in question.
However, this scenario raises questions about how The Last of Us 2 escapes. Indeed, the circumstance will have to be clarified in which an external person came into possession of such highly confidential material.
