id Software to ban those with illegal multiplayer build of Wolfenstein, or worse
A multiplayer build of Wolfenstein was leaked last week, and id’s pretty upset about it.
So much so, than anyone who admits to having it will be banned from the forums, or possibly paid a visit by Acti’s legal department.
“It was brought to our attention on Friday, 7/31 that a build of the Wolfenstein Multiplayer was leaked and is now being distributed illegally through breach of NDA and mirrors posted on the internet. I must warn anyone involved that Activision’s legal department is taking this matter very seriously.
“Same applies here on the forums. If you mention that you have acquired this build, you are openly admitting to illegally obtaining the build and will be banned straight away. You have been warned.
“With regards to any footage, screenshots and comments posted here and all over the internet, an important thing to keep in mind is that these were not created from a build of the game that was final or consumer ready.
“There’s nothing we can do about it now except continue working on the game.”
The game is expected to hit retail sometime next week around August 17.
