As gamers eagerly anticipate the release of new characters and stages in their favorite games, dataminers often play a significant role in uncovering these secrets before they are officially announced. However, the director of MultiVersus has expressed his concerns, stating that dataminers do a disservice to the players by revealing content prematurely.

During the original run of MultiVersus, dataminers were quick to uncover upcoming characters and stages by delving into the game's code. For instance, voice lines for the Joker, voiced by Mark Hamill, were discovered in the game's data months before the character was officially announced for the game's return on May 28.

In a recent interview with VGC, MultiVersus director Tony Huynh addressed the issue of datamining and the measures taken to prevent leaks. Huynh acknowledged the challenges posed by dataminers, describing it as an ongoing battle to protect upcoming content from being prematurely revealed.

When asked about the impact of dataminers on the gaming community, Huynh expressed his disappointment, stating that it is a disservice to players who miss out on the excitement of a grand reveal. He emphasized the importance of preserving the element of surprise for players and ensuring that their gaming experience is not spoiled by leaked information.

While Huynh acknowledged the ingenuity of dataminers, he stressed the efforts made by the studio to safeguard upcoming content and prevent leaks from occurring in the future. Despite the challenges posed by dataminers, Huynh remains committed to delivering an engaging and surprising experience for players.
