Krafton, a developer of ‘PUBG,’ reportedly sent a private eye to Leaker’s house.
Private investigators are not something you would want to see at your home. Playing, a reputed Battlegrounds data miner/leaker reports that Krafton sent the following to his home.
Playing has been leaking Battlegrounds news regularly for quite some time. Last year, correctly stated that PUBG Battlegrounds would go free-to-play before the official confirmation. Krafton has also teased about a possible PUBG2, though this is still to be confirmed.
Playing took to Twitter ( via TWITLonger ) to inform his followers about the unpleasant surprise. The user wrote: “PUBG appeared at my door […] An investigator stood just outside my home, just now, and handed me a letter (regarding Krafton) asking me to take down all my social media leaks, give a complete accounting of my revenue, and provide all DMs relating to how I obtained said information.
Playing, as with many leaders, has kept anonymity online. Krafton must be serious if they have indeed tracked down the user.
playing offered some thoughts about the letter. “For context, these are my current thoughts,” he said. These leaks are not actively looking for their people/systems to get information, but mainly vice versa. Data mines that I receive from their skins come from an updated website before Test Server goes live. It’s HTML. I right-click and save the images.
Playing has not been tweeted since the posting. His last TwitLonger ended in “I don’t really know what I should do right now.” The user may be seeking legal advice. Krafton has not yet publicly acknowledged the incident.
