According to reports from various sources, a developer build of Crysis 2 has been leaked to torrent services.
Per a post over on Facepunch, the leak contains the full game, multiplayer included, as well as the game’s DRM files.
No word yet on how this happened, but it has. Which is a shame. Remember kids, it’s only cool to be a pirate if you look like Johnny Depp.
You can read about it in various places, but head on over to RPS for more.
EA’s response on the matter to Kotaku was:
“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.”
Crysis 2 releases on March 22 in the US and March 25 in the UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
