A Comprehensive List of Words to Mute to Avoid The Last of Us: Part II Spoilers

From character names to corporate scandals.

If you were lucky enough to have not heard before reading this, a fair bit of footage and spoilers for The Last of Us: Part II has leaked early, and given that the game has been delayed with no new release date in sight, that means it’s time to panic. Or, instead of panicking, you can use the power of muting words and phrases, whether that be natively on something like Twitter, or through a browser extension that will mute these words across all of the internet. To give you a headstart on the muting process, we’ve compiled a list of a fair bit of these words, including character names, company names, individuals who worked on the game, and other associated topics.

Got your Twitter muted keywords tab open? Alright then, let’s get to it.

Generally, The Last of Us: Part II has been having a rough go of it in 2020, largely due to the coronavirus pandemic disrupting its plans not once, but twice. The game was originally meant to make a public appearance at this year’s PAX East in Boston before Sony pulled its presence from the event due to concerns about the virus and putting its employees in an enclosed space with hundreds of people at at time. Weeks later, Sony and Naughty Dog announced the game wouldn’t be making its May release date, and is now delayed indefinitely until shipping and distribution channels are back in place. As of this writing, the game has no new release date or even a window, and has since been delisted from the PlayStation Network store.

Beyond delays, the coronavirus pandemic has been affecting nearly every other facet of the industry, as well, from the cancellation of major industry events like E3, developers shifting over to a work-from-home setup that is both keeping employees safe while also presenting new challenges in development, and it’s even complicated the process of buying video games as people in rural areas have almost no choice but break quarantine and brave the outside world if they want to play the current hotness.
