Of all the easter eggs in The Last of Us, one of them turned out to be pretty, well, naughty: the two phone numbers on a bulletin board in Pittsburgh apparently are the numbers for phone sex hotlines. However, Naughty Dog game director Neil Druckmann said that it’s a mistake, and it’s no easter egg: “That was an artist’s mistake. What happened was, they put some phone numbers in the game and then they thought they could just change the area code to 555, then it’s invalid because it’s what they do in movies. But I guess that doesn’t work when you have a 1-800 in front of it.”

According to Druckmann, it was just an honest mistake, and the team’s working to fix it.

Good one guys!
