Gears Of War Judgement has leaked onto torrent sites, a month ahead of the game’s scheduled release date of March 22nd in the UK.
It is unclear what build of the game has been leaked, whether it’s an earlier build or the final version, but Microsoft has released a statement saying that they will be pursuing action against anyone found to be playing the game.
This isn’t the first time the Gears franchise has been a victim of piracy. Around the time of Gears Of War 3’s release date an early build was leaked to torrent sites, resulting in Microsoft taking a tough stance.
My advice is if you find the torrent do not download it. It’s not really worth getting banned from your account and console for a, presumably unfinished, title. Wait for it to release and buy it when you feel like, be it release day, when the price drops or second hand (though MS will no doubt disagree with me on that last suggestion).
