One purpose of non-disclosure agreements is to keep things in development under wraps; however, this did not stop an Xbox One tester from revealing gameplay footage from Tom Clancy’s “The Division”.
GameSpot reports that Xbox One invited players to be part of the alpha testing period for “The Division”. In turn, these players were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement that prohibits them to share their testing experience with the game publicly or share any material on social media.
However, the website also points out that the leak was bound to happen because the game has been delayed for a number of times before it reached an actual release date.
Noting that it is only a matter of time before the videos will be pulled out, the thread at NeoGAF shared a number of links on where “The Division” footage can be found. You can check the links to the videos here.
Polygon details that the alpha testing has been going on for two weeks. The testing is said to some form of consolation for players who ordered the beta for “The Division”.
Due to signing a non-disclosure agreement, the person who uploaded the footage will surely face some problems. However, the person who gave the links to the NeoGAF thread made it clear that he/she is not the one responsible for uploading the leaked gameplay.
Polygon chronicles the delays of the game, including that the upcoming beta release was supposed to be this year–however, it was delayed for 2016. The website also mentions that the leaked footage is 40 minutes long.
Whatever the course Xbox One takes in terms of the leakage remains to be seen. For now, players who have been waiting for the game for so long can check the video or its mirror sites to get a glimpse of what they can expect.
Beta for “The Division” was announced for a release in March 8, 2016 and it will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 (PS4), and Xbox One.
