If you are worried about The Last of Us Part II being spoiled for you then rest assured, the game’s ending has not leaked at all. Sure, there were leaks that took place in late April. However, according to game director Niel Druckmann, whatever ending you think you have seen details about, is false.
Niel touched on the previous leaks saying that there’s a lot of false things out there. According to Druckmann, people still have no idea what they are in for.

There’s so many false things out there. We don’t want to go out there and correct anything because that would be spoiling the game in a way – by saying what it isn’t, we’re kind of saying what it is.”[/perfectpullquote]
In short, by Naughty Dog saying what is real or not, they might spoil the actual The Last of Us Part II ending. Instead, the studio has decided to keep silent about the matter. For those of you who think they know how the game ends, you don’t
Niel went on to explain how Ellie has grown up since the first game;

We made a journey with Ellie, and Ellie is who she is. It’s been defined in the previous game. We’re going to continue going forward. She’s now 19. How do we explore all the facets of what it’s like to be 19? You think you’re invincible. You think you know what’s right and wrong in the world. You are sexually attracted to people you’re attracted to. Those are all things we want to explore for this character – that’s how we do honest storytelling.”[/perfectpullquote]
