Microsoft to Take Legal Action Against ‘ntkrnl’ Following Leaked Information

A lot of rumors related to Microsoft were posted last night on NeoGAF, there was information that Forza Horizon is coming this fall and a game called Shangheist was cancelled since the Black Tusk Studio started working on the new Gears of War, another news was about a disk less Xbox One and a white Xbox One to be launched later this year.

All of this information was leaked by the user “ntkrnl” who has yet to identify his true identity, but he is the one posting whole a lot about Microsoft’s future. Rumors might be vague but some of the rumors might seem true.

Ntkrnl gave 11th November release date of Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 5 will be delayed to 2015 and Fable Legends will release in the summer of 2015. He also posted few pictures that appear to be a Titanfall-themed Xbox One bundle. It is however worth noting that even if the bundle is real, doesn’t mean it will be available in the market.


The Verge having very good track record with Microsoft has verified few of the claims of ntkrnl, which includes White Xbox One release and a major dashboard update to be released in March which will reportedly fix some of the bigger issues faced by the Xbox One users.

They also confirm that Microsoft are running tests on an Xbox without the disk drive, but it is not certain whether that console will make its way to the market or not.

According to the source at Kotaku Microsoft is trying to pin down and identify the person who is leaking all this information, according to him,
