The lights are on
The Last of Us is getting a patch today that will tweak some aspects of the multiplayer, but it will also remove a pair of phone numbers that appear on an in-game bulletin board.
The two phone numbers appeared on a flyer for pest control, and they were both for phone sex hotlines. The Last of Us's creative director Neil Druckmann confirmed to Kotaku that the inclusion of the numbers was a mistake. The patch, which goes live today at 5 PM PST, will remove the numbers.
You can see the full list of changes below, or on Naughty Dog's website:

Lol, we all fail sometimes. And those explicit phone numbers are hardly the worst the industry has seen before.
Could have sworn I downloaded this patch at like 1 in the morning when I was playing last night...
Still in the news. Good work guys.
Reminds me of that Jessica-Rabbit phone number in the Who Shot Roger Rabbit NES game. Now goes to a sex-chat line :)
Maybe nerd Diablo? Too easy to get kills
who the heck calls numbers that they find in games
I thought it was a joke reffering to kids playing it as pests so than when they call it and get in trouble they're parents wouldnt let them play it.Pests controlled.
"If you disconnect or lose connection to the host, you will no longer advance a clan day. You will only advance a day if you are kicked from the match, or exit through the menu"
YES. OH GOD YES.
You naughty dog.
I ran into a bunch of sound glitches throughout the story mode. Kind of wish they would fix those myself, but oh well.
Thank goodness they're fixing that disconnection-advance-a-day-anyway crap. Idk why but I've been in four or five matches where I got dropped due to poor connection and even though I was doing well I got no progress, advanced a day on my challenge, and lost tons of members.
I'd laugh even more if the phone numbers were just a random set of numbers that turned out to be what they were. That'd make it 100x better.
Sounds like an awesome update. I've been playing a lot more multiplayer than I thought I would, and I'm having a blast. It's always nice to get some improvements.
That inclusion was on purpose and a look into the sick yet hilarious minds over at naughty dog , to the art guy who put them there I applaud you my good man.
