Halo Reach leaked over Microsoft ServersBy Tom Manners 23 August 2010 | Categories: news
Reports are flooding in that incoming Halo title Halo: Reach was leaked over the weekend.
According to Joystiq, the full game download of the Bungie developed title was made available to Xbox 360 players this past weekend. The most distressing part however is that it was made available over Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE online platform.
Members of gaming community Game-Tut.com reportedly tricked Microsoft’s servers, which are currently hosting the full game download in lieu of its September 14th release date, into allowing downloads of the Media version of the game - which is unlockable with a code.
In a somewhat chivalrous move, Game-Tut.com has yet to leak the code to the general public.
In response, a Microsoft spokesperson revealed that “we are aware of claims being made regarding a security exploit related to Halo: Reach and are aggressively investigating the matter. We have no further details to share at this time."
This should no doubt feed into the hype surrounding the impending release of the game.
