Tron Legacy Viral To Go Silent “For The Next Few Weeks”

by Dan Koelsch

Well, this is unfortunate. After a strong start to the Tron Legacy viral that gave us at least weekly updates, the campaign is looking to lay low for a while. This isn’t too surprising given the amount of work already put into it, yet the film’s release still being over 7 months away. There was no way they could keep up this amount of intensity for that that long non-stop. Find out the details after the jump.

Smartly, this long hiatus is being presented as in-world, with the Flynn Lives group saying they need to go “underground” since Encom is on to them. Here is an excerpt from their main page on the break:

There’s so much more on the horizon – meet-ups to attend, clues to hunt down, mega-huge software companies to keep honest – but, for the next few weeks, we need to lay low. We’ll be calling on you before you know it, so stay connected, keep your contact info up-to-date and always remember: FLYNN LIVES!



Access to the Encom Intranet has also been removed for now, as Encom is on to the group and performed some maintenance to patch security holes. The group was able to get one last screencap of the site before getting locked out.


We’ll let you know once the viral picks up again. Follow our coverage on our Tron Legacy Viral Page.
