Take-Two Interactive and 2K Games gave statements to IGN about the Borderlands 3 leaks that circulated on the net and were reported by content maker Supmatto.
In a statement to IGN, a representative of 2K Games stated …
“Take Two and 2K take the security and confidentiality of trade secrets very seriously. The action we have taken is the result of a ten-month investigation and a history in which this maker benefited from violating our policies, leaking confidential information about our product, and violating our copyright, "
This was widespread by YouTubers such as TheQuartering, who took Take-Two and 2K Games to drag Supmatto through the mud about information he and others collected from public streams from Gearbox.
The video covers how multiple DMCA claims were filed against Supmatto and its content above his Borderlands 3 videos.
For now, the Supmatto YouTube channel is still active, but it can be terminated every day. He openly stated that he took a break from YouTube after 2K Games that sent private investigators to his house.
This was told by YouTuber Upper Echelon Gamers.
As noted in the video from Upper Echelon Gamers, some almost defamatory statements have been made against Supmattio by IGN and 2K in an effort to promote its content and account as sales information for membership fees.
This all came to a head after #BoycottBorderlands started trending when the first reports appeared about what happened to Supmatto & # 39; s channel.
