Major facepalms all round at Crytek and for all genuine fans

an almost complete Dev build of PC version of Crysis 2 has appeared on certain shady internet sites :wall: :wall:

...but even more Unbelievably the Multiplayer Master Key file (DRM which handles the online activation/authentication) has also been leaked too :wall: :wall: :wall:

the only "good" news is that the stolen game was an incomplete DirectX 9 internal build and is prone to crashing

and Crytek will now be frantically changing the DRM codes

Too early to say what this will mean for the game... is possible might cause the original release date to be shelved while they try to fix this mess.. unless they can mange to pull a rabbit from the hat and recover from this

will be a Major embarrassment for Crytek, sure hope they find the source of this leak and how on earth they managed to get this, had to be a huge failure in security


Oh and I too am still going to wait and buy the genuine real game :thumbsup:

looser pirates can enjoy their crappy knock-off "version"

Saw that article about an hour ago. Looks like everything has been removed, article, pics, video, comments. Interesting tactic...kind of like how during a televised football game they will never show the fan that runs on to the field so as not to encourage others to try it.

Edit: Looks like the article is back up minus the pics and video.

Yeah, video's have been pulled from a lot of respectable sites, either at request of Crytek/EA or just out of respect for not wanting to spoil players initial enjoyment of the game.

Crytek released a statement last night:

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.

Article @ Eurogamer reporting this mess may force Crysis 3 into being a console only release. :wall:


I doubt that. A message from the big boss himself.

As you all have heard by now, an early, incomplete build of Crysis 2 has been leaked online. While we are deeply disappointed by these events, we are all completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from you, our community.

Despite this unfortunate incident, we can assure you that PC gaming is very important to us and will always be important to Crytek in the future. We are all still focused on delivering a great gaming experience to our true and honest fans. I hope you will enjoy Crysis 2 on PC, as we think it is our best PC game yet!

We appreciate all of your continued support, and look forward to playing online with you soon!

Thank you,

Cevat Yerli

I wonder how the data was leaked and who or what persons were involved?. I heard the leaked developer build has the whole single player, the complete multiplayer c/w masterkey (whatever that is?) and the CryEngine 3 editor and xbox360 and ps3 data/code? and dx9-10-11?. Oh dear.
