Gears of War: Judgment gets pirated, a month before its scheduled release.
We've a month yet to go before the launch of the next installment in the Gears of War franchise, but pirates already have copies up on torrent sites. This doesn't please Microsoft, you'll be unsurprised to hear, and it has already threatened console bans for anyone who dares play a stolen copy.
This isn't the first time something like this has happened. Halo 4 had its share of piracy problems, and Microsoft was quick with the bans when it popped up on torrent sites. Moreover Microsoft regularly polices its system, often banning hundreds of thousands of accounts at a time on piracy charges.
The official release of Gears of War: Judgment is March 22nd, for the Xbox 360
