Report: Current-Gen Call of Duty: Ghost Pirated, Hacked

November 5, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Call of Duty: Ghost, the latest in Activision's best-selling military-themed shooter series, releases today, but current generation versions of the game have been hacked, according to this Polygon report. Citing a NeoGAF thread featuring YouTube Call of Duty troller "MinnesotaBurns," the report claims that he was able to obtain a copy of the game early and record a conversation with alleged hackers in a Ghosts chatroom.

According to that interview hackers were able to obtain copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier than today due to someone ripping and uploading an official copy of the game. The game was then downloaded to hacked consoles, allowing players to set up multiplayer lobbies with various cheats turned on. Those cheats included automatic aiming and the ability to see through walls

A representative for Activision told Polygon that the company could not comment at this time.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches today for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows PC and Wii U. Next-generation versions of the game will launch alongside the PlayStation 4 on Nov. 15 and on Xbox One Nov. 22. Watch the video to your left for more.

Sorry to be super desensitized, but isn't it just a given that new games are going to be pirated? I will say this. If there are cheaters for online multiplayer? I'm out. I'm not into losing and not knowing why I suck so bad.
