It’s a well known fact that Microsoft does not take leaks very lightly. While it’s official release may be an entire month away on March 19, the Epic Games and People Can Fly developed Gears of War: Judgment has leaked to the masses. The copy, which now has multiple torrents, is said to be incomplete.

“We are aware of isolated cases in which Gears of War: Judgment content has been propped on the web and are working closely with our security teams and law enforcement to address the situation immediately,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer.

The publisher promises lifetime console and account bans for anyone found playing the game illegitimately before release. “Playing pirated copies of games, such as Gears of War: Judgment, is a violation of the Xbox Live Terms of Use and will result in enforcement action, such as account and console bans.”

A similar situation previously occurred with both Halo 4 and Gears of War 3 although it was a lot closer to release date.

“Consumers should be aware that piracy is illegal and we take vigorous action against illegal activity related to our products and services.”
