Origin apparently displays a "This code has already been used" error message
PC owners who pre-order Crysis 3 via Electronic Arts' Origin digital distribution service have found that the title is no longer present in their game libraries and, if they attempt to start it from an executable file that was pre-loaded by the service, Origin warns them that "This code has already been used."Crysis 3 is out today, February 19, in North America, and will come out in Europe on February 22, for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 platforms.
Sadly, PC owners who pre-ordered the game via the Origin digital distribution service and pre-loaded the game over the weekend have found that their game libraries no longer display an entry for Crysis 3.
When some users tried to start the game via the executable file that was already pre-loaded, Origin displays an error message saying that "This code has already been used" and won't let them access the title.
Electronic Arts has posted a message on its forums, saying that it's "received reports of Crysis 3 disappearing from the Games library" and that it's "currently looking into this issue, and will keep you updated on our progress."
You can expect to hear more about this massive problem soon.
