Crytek and Electronic Arts have responded to the news that a full beta version of Crysis 2 has leaked online more than a month ahead of the official launch
The developer and publisher issued a joint statement which urged fans to support the game by buying copies when it launches on March 22nd, rather than downloading it now.
'Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites,
' the statement reads.
'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 22nd March.
'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.
Crysis 2 isn't the only major title to have been leaked online this week, however. Killzone 3 for PlayStation 3 has been leaked online
