If we have learned something from the gaming world, it is that cards are played pretty close to the chest – especially when it comes to game reveals.
It is owing to this industry practice, that the rumor mills churn overtime and players are always looking for leaked information, visuals and other media. Almost all big developers have been targeted by such leaks at one time or the other. This time around though, things are getting more serious than ever. A recent cut scene, reportedly from the upcoming Halo 5 guardians, scheduled to be released on 2015, has leaked much ahead of its schedule.
How Did the Scene Leak?
It is not clear how or who leaked the cut scene. This new scene shows Agent Locke, a brand new character who is integral to the new story of this installment of Halo, along with Arbiter – a character model that has been updated in Halo 5. Both these characters play very prominent roles in Halo 5, and were largely unseen previously. The cut scene, which has been thus leaked, was supposed to come out with the release of the Master Chief Collection. The scene was also supposed to be a teaser for the Halo 5 Guardians, slated for release early next year. Its leaking has certainly spoiled the party.
Where Does the Video Come From?
As reported by several gaming blogs, this video has stemmed from The Master Chief Collection’s Twitch stream. Perhaps the streamer did not mean to leak the video or show off the new costumes and looks of these prominent characters, but as it happened, the video was leaked and footage which was meant to be released only next week, is now easily accessible on the internet. The video ends very abruptly, almost indicating that the streamer realized the mistake and cut the scene just before any more important footage could be shown.
The Master Chief Collection, from which this video has originated, is set to be released on November 11. Halo 5, as well as the Master Chief Collection is being released exclusively on the Xbox One, much to the dismay of PlayStation owners. The title has already received a lot of media attention and coverage, and is touted to be one of the biggest game releases of all times. As gamers wait for the Master Chief Collection to be released on Monday, and subsequently the release of Halo 5 in 2015, there is also Ridley Scott’s TV show Halo: Nightfall to sate the players. Unfortunately, the TV show has garnered a very poor response and could not build upon the hype and hysteria surrounding one of the biggest games ever in the history of video gaming. Players, who were giddy with excitement at the prospect of watching a TV show based on their favorite game, are now lamenting the fact that such a series is indeed being telecast. It seems that the adaptation has gone wrong somewhere. However, this does not take away from the fact that the gaming community is still waiting very eagerly for the release of the next installment of their favorite game.
