Halo franchise director sounds off on 'leakers'
True or false, insider leaks aren't fun. That's the message Halo franchise director Frank O'Connor made clear in a recent NeoGAF post.
"Breaking embargoes is not prophesy. Nor does it require any particular skill or insight. Ultimately [leakers are] taking or being given information and leaking it, illegally and often erroneously," O'Connor said. "People, including nice people with kids and families and stuff, work super hard on this stuff and wake up in the morning to find some of their effort blown up.
"It's not fun, and for what? So you can have a mildly interesting surprise 8 hours early and lacking context? Or get hyped or disappointed disproportionately? Or get someone fired or someone innocent yelled at? Ok. But it isn't prophecy, nor ultimately even important. It's annoying," he added.
The post comes on the same day Halo: Master Chief Edition was allegedly leaked. Microsoft has not commented on the bundle which reportedly includes re-mastered versions of Halo's 1-4. We expect to hear more about the Halo franchise in a few weeks at E3 2014 in Los Angeles, Calif.
