Recently, via NeoGAF (an internet gaming community), a 2GB RAR of unreleased Ubisoft goodies has been leaked onto the net. This package includes videos, screenshots, artwork, and general information on a number of Ubisofts upcoming hot titles.
Ubisoft had this to say – “We are clearly displeased that confidential information from Ubisoft has been distributed on the internet. The publication of this type of information can only be harmful to the game development process and we will take all steps necessary to prevent this from happening in the future. We are still investigating the events that lead to this information leak and at this time have no further comment.”
They’re most certainly not happy. Somehow the .rar wandered onto their ubi.com FTP server, which was then uploaded onto a NeoGAF thread by a user. Ubisoft killed off this source as soon as they could, but once it’s already out there, there’s not much they can do. So the thread doesn’t link to the 2GB file, but alot has been uploaded throughout it, including new Prince Of Persia artwork, some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles screenshots and art, and some FarCry stuff they certainly wouldn’t want out.
The pack included titles –
Prince of Persia
Splinter Cell 4
Splinter Cell 5
Star Wars PSP
Shaun White (Snowboarding game)
I think Ubisoft will be checking what goes on their FTP server a bit more thoroughly now.
