Arknights CN is in an uproar about leaked images for the soon-to-be-coming 2nd Anniversary.
What We Know:
- The images are of new Operators, Skins, and Story events. I won't be personally sharing them here at this point.
- The images are being heavily moderated and removed by moderators of NGA (A CN forum ) and Weibo (which is like CN Twitter), and people are expressing concerns about potentially being punished on these platforms for discussing the topic.
- The images do NOT come from a datamine of a released asset, which is where datamined info typically comes from. This means they were taken from an in-house development asset. There are two possible ways it became public (It has not been officially announced which, afaik):
- 1. it was leaked internally in violation of NDA
- 2. it was acquired by an external party through malicious means
Here is an image with less words to help ENs like me understand the difference. (credit Karkar#7611)
- As always with leaked or datamined content, nothing is certain until it is released.
