Crysis 2 has been leaked

Written by David Stellmack


Full version is floating around
According to a number of sources a full version of Crysis 2 has leaked onto torrent sites for download. The news, of course, isn’t going to make developer Crytek happy, as the leaked version arrived a full month ahead of the official release.

Some of our sources tell us that the version that has been leaked is not the RTM copy of the game, but instead a very late beta. We can’t confirm that this is the case, and at this point neither the developer Crytek nor publisher Electronic Arts have any official comment.

Despite the lack of an official comment, whispers we hear indicate that the developer and publisher might be considering moving the release date up in an effort to minimize the damage of the leaked version being out there; but there is no official word that this is the plan that they are going with.

Crysis is set to arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 22nd and moving the date up could be tricky, as there are a number of high profile titles set for release, including Fight Night Champions, Major League Baseball, Dragon Age 2 and the highly anticipated Homefront. Taking on one of these titles could limit the sales of Crysis 2; but it will be a difficult decision, as the leaked version might be doing more damage.

Expect an official statement clarifying the situation from Crytek or Electronic Arts later this week.

And we wonder why developers have abandoned the PC gaming scene!

the beta is serverly broken (missing textures, sound, animations, major crashing issues) and dx9 only. Only an idiot would play this and take it as a full gem.

Aww... nonsense... whining about the piracy and so on... those who use pirated games will never buy a one and vice versa, these are proven statistics.

I've downloaded the beta. Played a bit, and what? Now I know, that I have to replace may pair if GTX280, because Crysis has lots of crappy textures and they will be using lot of tessellation effect, to remedy it.

If the will be enough fun, to rise the interest for multiplayer, and won't be buggy as hell, then I'll buy it for sure. Not like some Stalker - half cooked code, or early Black Ops stuttering on so on with many latest titles, you'll get more headache, than gaming fun, that is because PC users aren't buying games... the lack of quality that consoles always brings.

This leak must have came from someone inside CryTek as the build I have seen comes with a mailing list from some people @ CryTEK who had received the build that was compiled @ 13-01-2011 / 01:00:07

BuildName: Crysis2(5620)01_13
BuildTime: 2011/01/13:01:00:07

Further more the leaked build has a tb_recipients.txt (Bin32 folder) list (Test Build) with the following e-mail addresses containing CryTEK staff members:
autotest2@cryte k

All i can say to CryTek is go and get them already!

From a friend who took the leak and did some detective work

@Ferrum Master

Really now?
Care to guide me to where I can find these so called "proven statistics"?

Quoting loadwick:

And you think having Sony's master key leaked makes PS3 a better alternative?

Er actually no, wrong. This ONLY came about because some ejit at Crytek/EA leaked it. The pirating is an IN-HOUSE job!

These companies will need to look to their own before going on about the woes of pirating PC games affecting sales/rights etc.

Only an idiot would play the game at this buggy state. Its 100 times better to buy the official version that will be playable at least.

Don't care about the leak...I'm going to PAY for the full version because they deserve it!

Buggy ? Its a build from January, if its that buggy then, its gonna be buggy on retail too.

Pretty pathetic for EA to blame others when somebody from Crytec leaked it.
