Thar Be Pirates – BulletStorm

It seems that last weekend the in development games Killzone 3 and Crysis 2 were both been leaked onto popular torrent websites.  The Killzone 3 leak was the full game, while Crysis 2 was the unfinished, unpolished, beta code.  The single-player game was completely playable from start to finish, though.  Or so I hear…

Today, gamrFeed has learned that Bulletstorm is popping up on the same torrent sites.  Torrent users are boasting on forums that they have pirated versions of Bulletstorm up and running on the Xbox 360.  These appear to be the full retail copies of the game.

Seeing as this is the second game being published by EA Games to be leaked in such a short time span, could this be an inside job? Is someone at EA doing this?  Sounds like they need to hire a game loving, intellectual property protecting, incident response experienced security guy that can help them install DLP and monitor communicaitons on their networks!!  I just happen to know one.  He might even volunteer to help out, as long as it wouldn’t impact his EI cheques and job search…

Bulletstorm is scheduled for a release date of February 22nd in North America for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.  The game will launch on February 25th for Europe.
