PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has revealed that demand for The Last of Us Part 2 "remains strong" despite major story spoilers circulating online. Specifically, the spoilers appear to have had a limited effect on preorders for the game. In an interview with CNET, Ryan acknowledged the unfortunate situation, but mentioned that Sony has "tallied more preorders in Europe for The Last of Us Part 2 than it did for Marvel's Spider-Man at the same point before its launch." Ryan went on to say that he hopes The Last of Us Part 2 will be "a defining game for this generation," and added that while there haven't been any plans revealed for bringing the game to the PS5, The Last of Us Part 2 will run on the new console "without issue."

They're still doing the rounds, so please, be careful out there! Not long to go now until June 19, when the game launches worldwide on PS4.
