Halo Infinite story spoilers have leaked via the game's multiplayer technical preview.

Developer 343 Industries has confirmed that some content from the upcoming game's campaign was mistakenly left in the beta's files, allowing data miners to pull them up and discover details of the story.

Halo Infinite's head of creative, Joseph Staten, lamented the leaks via Twitter.

"Leaks like this are painful for the dev team and can ruin the campaign experience for everyone," he wrote. "So please, keep [your] eyes peeled for spoilers and don't spread them if you see them."

Halo community director Brian Jarrard also warned fans and content creators that posting the data-mined leaks to their channels could lead to automated takedowns, which could in turn lead to disciplinary action from the platforms in question.

"Please don't post data-mined content to your channels!" Jarrard tweeted. "You run a very real risk of getting a takedown notice, which could result in a strike on certain platforms. If you have already posted content, we recommend removing it form your channel proactively."

The Halo Infinite multiplayer technical preview began Thursday and wraps up Sunday. The full game is set for release later this year following multiple delays. 343 Industries has yet to announce an official date.
