Halo: Reach leaked onto Torrent sites

Bungie’s highly anticipated Halo: Reach has found itself in the hands of some cheeky modders who were able to hack their way into a secure part of Xbox Live Marketplace and download the game. Microsoft uploaded the full game for the benefit of reviewers before the September 14th release date but these crafty so and sos found a way in: “So after alot of .xex cracking etc.. Me and my team finally did it, we got Halo: Reach! This is not released for public, and we are not really planning on releasing either.

Microsoft told IGN, who reported the leak, that they are “aggressively” looking into such claims and have no further comment. Despite the ‘kindness’ of the modding team’s spokesperson to not release the game, clearly one of the hackers disagreed. After a quick google search, Halo: Reach can be found on various BitTorren sites, making the situation far worse than Microsoft could have originally imagined. Of course, anyone caught playing the game early will be severely banned from Xbox Live but the story could still be ruined for fans awaiting to see the downfall of Reach. Bungie forum moderators issued a warning saying “The moderation team is doing their best, but if you want to stay 100% spoiler free, our best advice is to ‘go dark’ by staying off all internet gaming forums until you have played through the game!”
