Although Naughty Dog has already finished filming the final scene of The Last of Us 2, it appears as though fans are going to have to wait quite a while until they can get their hands on the highly anticipated sequel. A new rumor has surfaced online
The Last of Us Part 2 Release Date Allegedly Leaked
