PC games leak all the time. Even console games eventually turn up on torrent sites once their discs are pressed. But an Xbox Live Arcade game getting out, and one which isn’t that close to release, that’s a little stranger.
Yet that’s the situation Trials Evolution developers RedLynx find themselves in this week, with the game having appeared on “certain torrent file sites”. With no discs to press, and a release date that’s only listed as “2012”, that means the unfinished build was either leaked internally or somehow lifted.
Now, those who remember 2009 (what a time! Oh, we were so carefree) may remember that RedLynx purposefully leaked a previous Trials game onto a torrent site in order to drum up publicity. Leading some to believe, well, the same is happening again.
“We want to be clear that [leaking Trials Evolution] is not something we did ourselves,” RedLynx’s Tero Virtala told Develop.
