Wildstar developer Carbine focuses on building trust after beta leak


After a beta tester broke a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and shared information about the massively multiplayer online game Wildstar, the developers at Carbine Studios have decided to speak openly.

Instead of plugging the leak, the company has gone public with the exposed patch notes. Today producer Troy Hewitt posted a letter addressing the issue, stating, "No, we won't be doing this every time. Yes, we want to remove the person/s who leaked this information from beta. Yes, we want to avoid future leaks.

"Yes, we want to openly discuss areas of our game that require critical feedback. We'd just like to do it on our terms."

Hewitt wrote, "We trust and respect our community and refuse to let this particular bad apple spoil this entire bunch."

You can read the full patch notes guilt-free on the game's website.
