Addressing leaks: Kingdom Hearts III screenshots, partial world list, and other file names

Recommended Posts

On December 15, 2017, user Wrestleman posted two screenshots of an alleged new world in Kingdom Hearts III sourced to a Square Enix FTP server. Following this, other similar screenshots from the same world surfaced on Imgur on December 23, 2017.

 

Since then, more Kingdom Hearts III developer's content was made publicly downloadable from the server; they have quickly been taken down, but it is still possible to see the file names (most of them dated April and September 2017), which give away a partial list of worlds in the game.

 

Upon investigating the leaks, KH13.com have reason to believe these are legitimate.

 

However, due to ethical and copyright issues, we have decided to not report on them in detail any further.

 

We have created a Kingdom Hearts III Spoilers subforum where fans can discuss these leaks.

 

KH13.com's spoiler policy on Kingdom Hearts III allows discussion on publicly announced content (eg. trailers, interviews, promotional pictures, etc.); however, leaks are to be discussed in the Spoilers subforum only. Avatars, statuses, and thread titles must not contain spoilers. We may be revising our Kingdom Hearts III spoiler policy in the future, according to future content releases by Square Enix and Disney.

 

We hope that fans understand our decision and respect the work done so far by the game's developing team by not divulging the leaks where they aren't warranted.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

In which case, you may want to adjust the "recent topics" list somehow so topics from this forum the spoiler forum won't show up there...I think KHInsider already did something similar.

They shouldn't have been leaked to begin with... it ruins the surprise and tells us what to expect in the game, who wants that? apparently a good chunk of the impatient community...

 

The community is everything, except impatient. It's SE's fault that they can't deliver news on a regular basis, sooner or later these things will be leaked.

So much this. Like, I get it, leaks are inevitable, but this forum could do a way better job at containing them, and that goes for UX spoilers too.

I'm not surprised at the leaks (we've been waiting a long time, people are impatient, etc) but cracking servers and flooding the community with it... not how you should go about it.

I'm not sure if we can clear the recent topics list of them, but in the mean time spoilers/leaks are not to be mentioned through avatars, statuses, and thread titles, we've done this for every other spoiler policy we've had. So even if they show up on the recent topics list, it would have a spoiler warning before you click on the actual thread itself. The mod team will be actively monitoring the site to ensure this. 

 

We don't have a spoiler policy for KHUX and don't think there's enough demand for one at the moment.

Nomura wants to give more information, but he has to clear it through both SE and Disney to give new information and Disney doesn't want to give more than they need to, of course they aren't obligated to give any information at any time, we are very fortunate to get any piece of information at any time.

Nobody cracked anything, it was just Square being careless and leaving their files on a public server.
