According to a thread on the Facepunch forums, titled "Crysis 2, leaked 49 days early," Crysis 2 has been leaked. The download contains the full game (the campaign is reportedly playable from start to finish) and multiplayer support (the master key for online authentication is supposedly included).

The game will still see a multi-platform release on March 22, 2011 in the United States and March 25, 2011 in Europe. Given how close we are to the game's release, the leaked build could be almost finished. Crytek has said that the game has the best graphics you've ever seen but that it will be graphically superior on the PC. The company will be undoubtedly less inclined to support the PC platform after a fiasco like this one. The game's developers are trying to save face by saying the leak is a still a development build.

"Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites," an EA spokesperson said in a statement. "Crytek and EA are deeply disappointed by the news. We encourage fans to support the game and the development team by waiting and purchasing the final, polished game on March 22. Crysis 2 is still in development and promises to be the ultimate action blockbuster as the series' signature Nanosuit lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion. Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community."

Crysis 2 was announced for the PC, Xbox 360, and the PS3 way back in June 2009. Since then, we've seen screenshots, teaser trailers, gameplay footage, and even delays. This, however, takes the cake. The news that there will be a Crysis 2 demo for PC is almost redundant now.
