Crytek has been alerted that an early, 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 playing the final, polished game on March 22.
Crysis 2 is still in development, and the team is hard at work on it and Crysis 2 promises to be the ultimate action blockbuster as the Nanosuit lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion.
Piracy continues to damage the PC development community.
I agree completely, why are they shouting at us! We did not steal it, must have been one of their own employees! Sometimes things leak out of the pressing plants or the retail outlets, but if this is an early beta or RC version then they need to look a little closer to home!

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.
That piracy statement pissed me off actually. This is not the final game that someone got a few weeks early and leaked to the web, it's an internal development version. They should plug the leak instead of blaming others for their mistakes.
Lets see if they will cry piracy when the console versions get leaked a week or so before launch.
I agree with Mike, they need to find out who had access to the bits and track it back. Then prosecute them like they where selling console copies early.
And as Soulz said, don't bitch when you game sells a million copies and blame piracy.
Most people who want a game like this are going to buy it even after playing an "early" non-paid for beta. Use this as an oportunity to spread the word out that you have more work ahead and the game is no where near finished.
Again stop bitching and go find the bastard that leaked it.
If it has decent multiplayer people will buy it anyway, singleplayer will always be pirated. Games piracy is nothing new, it goes as far back as the C64 and before, people copied disks.
Sure its easier now to copy and spread but the market is also larger than it was in those old days.
You used to find that those in the top scene groups back then worked for the companies who produced the games anyway, the majority of crackers worked in the industry, it was no suprised things got 0 day leaked.
True. I played both the SP and MP and didn't like either. Lovely looking game but it wasn't exactly exciting to play. I felt the same way about Far Cry 2. Lovely games to show off what can be done graphically but I need to enjoy the game first. That's why I think I will pass on Crysis 2.
