So far, many Halo fans have enjoyed Halo Infinite’s multiplayer tech preview. However, it has been confirmed that campaign content was mistakenly included in the beta files leading to online spoilers.
Joseph Staten of 343 Industries declared that there was a “small number” of Halo Infinite campaign files inadvertently left in the tech preview version. He confirmed that they included spoilers.
“Leaks like this are painful for the development team and can ruin the campaign experience for anyone,” Staten said in a tweet. “So please keep your eyes peeled for spoilers and don’t spread them if you see them.”
In addition to spoilers, downloading any of the data extracted from sites like YouTube could have negative effects on your channel. Halo Community Director Brian Jarrard has warned that this could result in a takedown notice and lead to warnings.
“If you’ve posted content before, we recommend that you proactively remove it from your channel,” Jarrard recommends.
IMPORTANT: Please do not post any data extracted content on your channels! You run a very real risk of receiving a takedown notice, which could result in a strike on some platforms. If you’ve already posted content, we recommend that you proactively remove it from your channel.
