Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War prepares its launch and to prevent compromising data from being revealed, Treyarch has resorted to an anti-dataminers and leakers technique that is trolling them.
To this day, leaks are our bread and butter and Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War could be affected by them at any time. The disclosure of information about the most important releases is already something we are very used to, especially in the war saga, although it is not a practice that everyone likes.
Obviously, the least attractive is the developers who do not want the fruit of their work to leak out sooner than expected. Thus, Treyarch has been preparing to welcome dataminers and leakers who want to find out the secrets of the Cold War.
To prevent information from being leaked, the developer has resorted to the ancient formula of rickrolling. This term corresponds to a way of fooling the most curious, renaming some game files to troll the leakers and play a joke on them.
In several files with very suggestive names like “LOOTBOXES_CONFIG” or “SEASON_CONFIG” The links of the information have been changed and they all lead to the same place: the famous song “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.
So many leakers are having no choice but to smile bitterly when they discover Treyarch’s prank. It seems that Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War still has a few secrets to reveal and is that these measures are very necessary, since the Activision saga is always in the crosshairs of many curious.
Fun fact: looking through the COD Cold War .exe, you will find a couple Rick Roll links 🙂 pic.twitter.com/5BBNhnjUc5
