Modern Warfare 3 stolen, pirated

Activision investigators knocking on doors in search for illegal copies

Pirated copies of Modern Warfare 3 are reportedly spreading across the States, ahead of the game's November 8 release.


An employee at a shipping warehouse in California reportedly stole disc two of the PC retail version before leaking it online, according to VentureBeat, which adds security may have been too tight for the thief to steal the other disc.

Activision is apparently chasing down those found to be playing the game, turning up at their doors and asking them to delete pirated copies or face a $5,000 fine and potential permanent online ban.
