Looks like Hoodlum is up to their old tricks again. Thanks to LBDG over at DarkUFO we are able to see the email that is scheduled to be released Friday. (The email was hosted on DWY.com, but has since been pulled. Thanks Dennis) If you wish to game spoiler-free, please advert your eyes.
The email is from Hans Van Eeghen and details the “security breach” at Comic-Con, saying that “Dan Bronson has been expelled from the volunteer program and had his Dharma membership permanently revoked… [and the] Dharma Initiative has withdrawn their sponsorship of ‘LOST’.”
Could this mean that we will not be seeing anymore of Mr. Bronson or is he going to take up some kind of Rachel Blake vigilante approach to the game?
Also, “The Dharma Initiative… has ordered a security audit of all departments. As a part of this audit the DharmaWantsYou recruiting website will be undergoing a security upgrade in the next few days”
Seeing as this email was already leaked they are off to a poor start.
“Upon completion of this upgrade a date will be announced for the official commencement of Volunteer Assesments.”
Finally, we will be getting some kind of time frame! Although this will most likely lead to major site downtime at the launch of the assesments.
The part that I find the most interesting is the last bolded paragraph:
“All recruits are reminded that the unauthrorized release of confidential information pertaining to the details of your activities within the Dharma Initiative will result in instant dismissal from the volunteer program”
This may just be an idle threat only pertaining to the Dan Bronson Breach, but I think its a warning to the folks picking apart the site (aka all of the game blogs).
All in all this email has providied some interesting insight into what to expect in the months ahead.
