Boomstick Gaming's review of Dead Cells was copied by IGN

Dead Cells is now available for everyone but the embargo for reviews was lifted yesterday at 12 pm PST. Multiple outlets, including ours, released their reviews but IGN's review was very similar to another one from Boomstick Gaming. Turns out it was plagiarized.

Caught by Boomstick Gaming, who published their review a week before, IGN's review was almost a word for word copy. IGN has removed the review from their site and commented on the issue.

As a group of writers and creators who value our own work and that of others in our field, the editorial staff of IGN takes plagiarism very seriously. In light of concerns that have been raised about our Dead Cells review, we’ve removed it for the time being and are investigating.

Dead Cells is now available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
