Naughty Dog has put out an official statement, over this passed weekend, condemning the harassment and threats that have been made against those who worked on Last of Us 2.

Director Neil Druckman, along with others who worked on the game, shared some of the messages that they have received following the release of the highly-anticipated game.

“You can love or hate the game and share your thoughts about it,” Druckman said on his official Twitter  page. “Unfortunately too many of the messages I’ve been getting are vile, hateful, & violent.” Based on screenshots he shared the messages contained homophobic, transphobic, antisemetic, and other hateful remarks. “Hopefully covid 19 kills your whole toxic feminist studio,” read part of one of the messages.

Last week, Laura Bailey, who provided the voice for Abby, tweeted out screenshots of the some of the nasty messages that she had received, adding; “I try to only post positive stuff on here…but sometimes this just gets a little overwhelming.”

“Although we welcome critical discussion, we condemn any form of harassment or threats directed towards our team and cast,” Naughty Dog stated, on their official Twitter page. “Their safety is our top priority, but we must all work together to root out this type of behavior and maintain a constructive and compassionate discourse.”

Xbox boss Phil Spencer says that Xbox Game Pass will not be making it’s way to competing consoles, or consoles outside of the Microsoft brand.

Spencer says that competitive platforms aren’t “really interested” in having the “full Xbox experience on their hardware”, during  an interview with Game Star.

“The thing about other gaming console platforms is we’re not able to bring a full Xbox experience on those platforms,” Spencer said (h/t TweakTown).

“In places where we have, like mobile phones like we’re doing now with xCloud coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate” Spencer continued.

“What we’ve done with PC in bringing our full Xbox experience there. Because we know when somebody is playing one of our Xbox games there is an expectation that “I’ve got my Xbox LIVE community, I have my achievements, Game Pass is an option for me, my first-party library is completely there”.

“The other competitive platforms aren’t really that interested in having a full Xbox experience on their hardware. But for us, we want to be where gamers want to be and that’s the path that we’re on.”
