The Last of Us 2 has been delayed indefinitely, with Naughty Dog's latest post-apocalyptic epic now without a release date.
That's perhaps understandable given the current state of the world, but that hasn't stopped the rumour mill spinning. In fact, a new 4Chan post (via Pinknews) has potentially revealed some of the game's narrative setup.
Of course, it would be wise to take this with the biggest grain of salt imaginable – and consider these as potential spoilers. With that in mind, here are the new leaked story details.
The Last of Us Part 2 Leaked Story Details?
Allegedly from an immediate family member of a Naughty Dog employee, the leaked plot will revolve around Ellie and her love-interest Dina, shown in the game's trailers. That's no surprise then, but allegedly a faction known as the Seraphites kill Dina – leading Ellie to seek revenge against the cult.
This quest for vengeance also allegedly results in the death of Joel, too – Ellie's mentor and father figure and protagonist of the first game.
Within the post, there are some interesting notes about Ellie's bloodline, with her mother allegedly one of the as-yet-unnamed women in the early trailers for the game. It is also alleged that Ellie's Seraphite-following father was killed for having a relationship with her mother, who was not part of the sect.
