Crysis 2 leaks online, EA responds

Crysis 2 will be making its way to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 22, but PC gamers can already play the leaked build of the popular shooter, much to the dismay of EA and Crytek.

The leak comes with master keys to override the piracy protection on Crysis 2. The beta is said to feature a near-complete campaign. Multiplayer mode is also available and fully functional in the leaked version.

See what EA had to say about the leak after the jump.

"Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites. Crytek and EA are deeply disappointed by the news. We encourage fans to support the game and the development team by waiting and purchasing the final, polished game on March 22. Crysis 2 is still in development and promises to be the ultimate action blockbuster as the series' signature Nanosuit lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion. Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community."
