BioWare Responds to Leaked Mass Effect 3 'Beta'
As a result of a leak "through human error at [Microsoft's] end", several Xbox Live users were able to gain temporary access to an early version of the much-anticipated Mass Effect 3. The leaked build has since been removed, but not before users leaked some pretty juicy information on the Neogaf forums.
BioWare has released a statement in light of the mixup.
"As most of you know by now, this evening an accidental leak occurred of some early Mass Effect 3 beta code. Microsoft has advised us that through human error at their end, content which was meant for internal beta testing was flagged incorrectly and released to individuals who had signed up for the beta of the Xbox Live dashboard update. It has since been taken down and deactivated."
"We'd like to stress that the leaked code is in a rough, unfinished state and was not meant for public release. The content is not final, and is not reflective of the quality of the finished, polished game due for release [in March of 2012]."
