Hi #naughtydog fans. Please don’t be tough on me, just bad wording from à french speaking person. Always been a big fan of #Uncharted and #LasOfUs games; played all of them and #lastofus2 is on my list. And what @naughtydog does is a ref to me. Sorry for this situation…

Now David is claiming the wording he used was bad due to bad translation on his part. We’re not sure just what David meant to say online if it was actually the case of a bad translation but regardless we’re eager to hear more about both The Last of Us Part II and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
