[et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]Since the initial leaks of major story and gameplay clips from the upcoming The Last of Us Part II, Sony had launched an investigation into the leaks’ source. The company was able to determine that the leaks came from unaffiliated hackers. Since then, more information regarding the hacking process used has surfaced.

Hacking Info

According to a tweet by former Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier, a patch from a previous Naughty Dog game accidentally allowed access to the developer’s servers. Hackers then exploited this to obtain footage of the dev’s working test builds of The Last of Us Part II.

This seemingly confirms a previous tweet thread from an anonymous developer under the name Pixelbutts, who claims to know the hackers who discovered the patch. He details the exact method used to gain access and states that these hackers had no part in the leaks. It appears that a group of currently-unknown individuals learned this process and entered Naughty Dog’s servers to leak the footage.

While speaking with Kotaku, Pixelbutts mentioned that the patch used for the exploit has since been fixed as of April 30th, and therefore can no longer be replicated. Neither Sony nor Naughty Dog have commented on this new information as of yet.
