Sony has said that upcoming sequel The Last of Us Part II continues to see huge demand in the way of pre-orders, despite recent leaks which spoiled the narrative of Naughty Dog's upcoming sequel for many players.
Speaking in an interview with CNET, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan stated that European pre-order numbers for The Last of Us Part II currently exceed the pre-order numbers for 2018 mega-seller Marvel's Spider-Man, a title would eventually go on to become one of the best selling games of the year, as well as becoming the best selling super-hero adventure of all-time.
While there were concerns that the spoilers would lead to people changing their mind about purchasing Naughty Dog's utterly brutal-looking title, these concerns appear to be unfounded. The Last of Us Part II already looks set to be an incredible success for the studio. This is hardly a surprise, given the almost messianic love many players have for the original release and its cast of downtrodden characters.
