Rumour : Call of Duty : Black Ops Stolen, to be Leaked

1 min read


Black Ops is set to be the biggest launch in entertainment history, even eclipsing the previous Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2. With the recent interesting multiplayer reveals, even I’m excited for it. It’s a pity then, that like most big games, it’ll be available to pirates before it reaches the hands of paying customers.

According to rumours, A sticky-fingered thief in Alabama nicked a copy of the game from a local printing press – and has started distributing copies of the highly anticipated shooter.

The thief  apparently sold copies of the stolen game to a number of people, including a member of hacking forum. There’s no doubt that this will find it’s way to darker, dodgier side of the internet, where people don’t like paying for things and keep trying to justify it to themselves and everybody around them by going off on tirades about how making a copy isn’t stealing, and that the publishers have enough money anyway and all sorts of other nonsense that helps them sleep better at night.

Josh Olin, Treyarch’s community manager, has apparently been actively trying to get to the bottom of theft and bring those responsible to task.

That said, the “hacker” in question, “Ungodly Leaker,” says the game was "never in our hands." Continuing, in a semi-literate fashion, and proving irrevocably that piracy makes you stupid, he said :

"It did how ever hit the hands of the Runner (the Computer guy) and according to him FBI came and Took It (RIGHT!!) Ha Ha Ha."  "After speaking with Josh [Olin] no FBI are involved at all but he wants tto know were we got the game from…. NO WERE it landed in our laps but we were scammed END OF Story…."

The game is scheduled for release worldwide on November 9 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Those of you who pirate it before then? I hope your balls fall off.

    >> Those of you who pirate it before then? I hope your balls fall off.

    That’s a little harsh.

    a) The best part of COD is the Multiplayer, pirated consoles are quickly banned from PSN/XBL.

    b) Despite the piracy, Kotick is making a billion on this.

    Wouldn’t it be genius if this was actually a viral marketing campaign? I mean, how can you not win if you involve those much hated terrorists of the internet world… pirates, leak a few copies of the game to create buzz, and ensure that prior to your launch, everyone is talking about your game?

    It would be genius! It would be even more of a coup if those leaked copies were in fact incomplete versions of the game, (i.e. glorified demos).
