    Some weeks ago, ransomware gang "Egregor" claimed to have gained access to the internal networks of Ubisoft and Crytek and stole data from both companies. Now it seems that some of this data has actually been leaked in the form of the source code of Ubisoft's latest game Watch Dogs: Legion. There are various reports of private trackers hosting this stolen code at a size of around 560 GB. This could make way for mods, optimization and cracking of the game’s anti-piracy measures.

    As for Crytek, "Egregor" apparently found documents detailing the developer's plans. These include plans for a battle-royale game called Crysis Next, Crysis VR and a new Ryse game. Additionally, their findings showed that the developer might also be planning to remaster Crysis 2 and Crysis 3.

    As the source code for Watch Dogs: Legion has leaked, here's a reminder that at GBAtemp we do not, under any circumstances, condone piracy, and will not facilitate the spreading of illegal ISO files, or any other kind of warez. Please be mindful when posting in threads and:

    Please do not ask for illegal files
    Please do not post illegal files
    Please do not share links to sites that host illegal warez
    Failure to adhere will result in account suspensions or permanent bans.
    This isn't our first rodeo, you have been warned!

    If you see any of these activities, please report them.

    If you have any questions please refer to :arrow:GBAtemp's TOS

    Wow, that's fucked. I mean it's one thing for the likes of the Mario 64 source to leak some 20+ years after release, but this game just came out. Normally I'm all about mods and hacking, but this news just depresses me, not excite me.

    From all accounts, the game seems to have turned out fairly lame anyway. I'm more curious as to whether this includes any source files for their implementation of Denuvo.

    Given how similar most engines are from this company this might actually turn out to be something quite special. As mentioned above most source we see released, decompiled or leaked is decades old but for all else that might be said about these guys they do have a current tech engine.

    Looking to see what becomes of this. Hoping for some nice Far Cry 2-5 adaptation, maybe a nice Splinter Cell revisit and tweak, possibly the basis for a few other things too.

    Not sure what leak will top this for the year (I would place this ahead of the entire Nintendo package in many ways, especially with mario 64 being decompiled unrelated to it) but here is hoping.

    Can we please appreciate the irony of a game about hacking getting its source code leaked by hackers?

    Mario 64 source code was never leaked. The game was reverse engineered which extreeeeeeemely different.

    All the more playing into my point, the game's source wasn't leaked in over 20 years and so the only way modders could do anything with it was too reverse engineer it completely. To an extent, I respect that, I have no respect for what has happened here though.

    Sure the executives and heads of these AAA companies suck, but do we really believe that such a source code leak is going to impact the paycheck of these people? No, of course not, this is going to come back and bite the low-level employees that spent countless hours to make this the best game it could be. Consequently, these are going to be the people that get fired or at the very least don't get bonuses because now the game wont sell as well as it should have.

    People shouldn't be happy for this. This does not just affect Ubisoft but a whole team (and more) that worked on it, shared private conversations and private information, with people potentially under scrutiny now for a very serious offense they (most likely) didn't commit.

    Don't be that kind of bully.

    Going to level with you. This? This shit right here? It's never okay to ruin someone just because they're "a bunch of dicks".

    why won't the game sell as well? piracy? assuming that piracy does harm sales, is illegally downloading some shady recompiled version of the game off the internet easier than illegally downloading a shady cracked version of the game off the internet?
    according to others in this thread, the game won't sell because it sucks.
