Hackers leak Ghostrunner game online a few weeks before official release
Cybersecurity specialists point out that Ghostrunner, an expected launch of the video game world, was leaked by a hacker group not identified a few days before its official release, scheduled for October 27.
This report has been circulating for almost a day in Reddit, so it has not been officially confirmed, although the source ensures that confirmation will be given soon.
Ghostrunner is a first-person “slasher” game in which players can apply their parkour skills acquired from franchises such as Assassin’s Creed and Mirror’s Edge. In addition, Ghostrunner has traits that will give him his own personality, such as his anticipated and novel brutal and ultra-fast combat system, as well as a cyberpunk environment.
Reports indicate that the leak includes 17 levels and 17 swords and other in-game items, highlighting four skills that open up along the way. The source also reports on a YouTube video where the first two levels (no spoilers) are recorded and some skills are demonstrated. In this case, the link leads to the blocked video due to copyright infringement. The only clue is a screenshot of a post on that forum.
An official pronouncement of the developers is expected in the coming days.
