|← Report: Quantic Dream to Reveal Next Game at Sony's E3 Press Conference||Indie Game Music Bundle 3 Now Available →|
Earlier today images from Halo 4 and the multiplayer game play were leaked. Who leaked this information is still unkown...however reddit user bantah thinks they have deduced who might have done it...and it's not the butler this time.
Let's go through bantah's evidence/deductions.
At the beginning of the footage there are a few pseudonyms shown, the most revealing one is 'MTW'.
Bantah did a google search and soon found the twitter account associated with the false name: superMTW. Said twitter account had tons of people asking about the Halo 4 leak and it has over 17,000 tweets. SuperMTW even tweeted that he/she posted the video and screenshots and plans to make another video. On one final note though, questions were asked about how the game was obtained but no answers were given.
After some more digging into the account bantah found the picture below, an iPhone screen capture showing that the iPhone belonged to a one Justin May. If you recall a couple years back one Justin May stole the "Breach" game code during PAX East and was arrested soon after.
I did some digging myself and found out that there are only three multiplayer maps according to superMTW. (See image below)
One last thing bantah mentions was a quote from an article done by Joystiq about the stolen Breach code.
In one of the articles you can read: "This guy had only succeeded in copying about 14MB to his laptop before our staff caught him" and under his Twitter account name you can read: "You don't get to 14mb without making a few enemies."
Everything here is compelling evidence...except for one small detail: The iPhone picture. Why post a screen capture of your iPhone showing that it's yours? Who does that and why do it? Also, if you didn't want to be found why would you make it so easy for someone to find out who you are? Also Justin May wholeheartedly admitted what he did and that he only wanted to play Breach with his friends. He was even in close vicinity with the developers when he stole the code. Halo 4 game play has not even been shown to the masses yet. This case has been to easily solved and the evidence is too obvious to even be believable. There's more to this than meets the eye dear readers. We will see how things develop. The Halo 4 multiplayer leak video still has not been taken off of YouTube as of the time this article was posted.
Thanks Hernan Romero for the tip.
