Just about a month from release, pirates have leaked Crysis 2 to the
internet. The leak includes the Campaign, Multiplayer and keys to
activate the product for use online. Needless to say, EA isn't exactly
happy with the situation.
“Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished
build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites. Crytek and EA are
deeply disappointed by the news. We encourage fans to support the game
and the development team by waiting and purchasing the final, polished
game on March 22. Crysis 2 is still in development and promises to
be the ultimate action blockbuster as the series’ signature Nanosuit
lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion.
Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC
development community.” EA said on their official Facebook page.
I can't help but be disappointed. Imagine if someone stole something
that you had been working on for years and then gave it to the entire
world, oh and on top of that it isn't even finished yet.
Basically, someone walks into your house, takes your game consoles, and
right before they leave they drop their pants and piss all over your
floor. Someone just pissed all over EA, that's pretty low.
For those of us actually abiding by the law, Crysis 2 hits shelves March 22nd.
