Warner Bros is taking legal action against an unknown individual who leaked the source code of the popular video game “Mortal Kombat II” on the internet. The source code is the underlying programming of the game and includes the game’s assets, which are the graphics, audio, and other elements that make up the final product.

According to multiple reports, the leak of the source code is a violation of their intellectual property rights and has caused significant damage to the company. They are now working with the relevant authorities to track down the person responsible and take legal action against them.

“The Mortal Kombat franchise is one of our most valued assets and the source code is the foundation of the game,” a Warner Bros spokesperson said. “The illegal leak of the code has caused significant damage to the company and we are taking legal action against those involved.”

The “Mortal Kombat” series is one of the most iconic and successful video game franchises of all time, with millions of copies sold worldwide. The release of the source code could also have serious consequences for the game’s future development and the company’s bottom line.

It is important to note that, such leak of confidential/proprietary information can be a criminal offense and it also impact the company’s reputation. The company is likely to explore all available legal means to protect the Intellectual property of the company.

This is not the first time that a major video game’s source code has been leaked online. In 2019, the source code for the classic game “DOOM” was leaked, which led to a number of fan-made versions of the game being created. In similar manner it’s worth noting that the unauthorized distribution of confidential and proprietary information like game source code, could also have serious consequences on the industry, as it could impact the livelihood of the game developers and the company.
