Electronic Arts is "deeply disappointed" that an incomplete, hacked version of Crysis 2 has appeared a full month before its release.
The leak includes the full Campaign, Multiplayer and the Master-keys to activate the product for online use. The hacked version of Crysis 2 is a late beta, but essentially the entire game.
EA reported on their official Facebook page:
"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."
One has to wonder about the damage pirates are doing when they release versions way before due dates. Whilst Piracy doesn't always hurt the fiscal success of a product, it does make the publishers lash out, and inevitably the only people who really get affected are the average consumers.
