Nvidia GeForce Now Leak Mentions Unannounced Games
Leaks happen all the time, and usually, fans who look into the leaks will find games currently in the works, or in the case of the Nintendo Gigaleak, the source code to games from years gone by. However, it seems that this leak for Nvidia’s online streaming service is showing games that haven’t been announced or are currently being worked on.
The List is coming from six months ago and contains titles from almost every major publisher. However, there are some titles that have caught the eyes of fans. The post was originally made by a data miner named Ighor. He mentions in the post that he dug up the internal database and found some Nintendo games inside of the database, and when he tried to send this to Nvidia, they seemed uninterested. This is probably due to the fact that the Nintendo games were used in the Chinese version of the Nvidia Shield TV. New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Mario Galaxy came out for the device, and there was also a remaster of Mario Kart Wii, which was not used in the final release of the Shield TV. Not knowing what to do with this information, Ihgor posted how to get to what he found so other players can look at it. This has opened the floodgates, prompting players to make a listing for every game coming to GeForce Now.
Highlights of the Leak
This is big news, and the games included in the GeForce leak are some that players might not expect. For one, Judgment is coming to GeForce Now. The game is only available on PlayStation at the moment, and it seems unlikely that it’s coming to PC, but the game is listed on the service. Other titles mentioned in the list include Kingdom Hearts 4, a Bioshock game coming in 2022, Destroy All Humans 3, and Talos Principle 2.
Should Players Believe the Leak?
While these names seem strange, especially with titles like Kingdom Hearts 4 and Destroy All Humans 3, there are some games that were listed 6 Months ago, that players have just heard about recently. One of the games shown in the leak is Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. This is the PC port of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy that players just found out about during the PS5 Showcase. Another game mentioned in the list that made headlines recently was the remaster of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas, which was all but confirmed.
However, some of the PlayStation games like God of War and Demon Souls, could be part of the Geforce Now collaboration with PS Now. Seeing that PS Now has a PC app that lets players enjoy the PlayStation library on PC through cloud streaming.
Two Xbox titles, codenamed Typhoon and Holland, were revealed to be Contraband and Fable months ago by Twitter user @JezCorden. On top of this, Modern Warfare 3 Remastered is in the GeForce Now leaking, despite Activision saying that the game wasn’t going to be remastered. Thisis a similar situation to the announcement of Modern Warfare 2 remastered, as the game’s campaign launched in March of 2020, despite the fact that the announcement had a trademark of 2018, meaning that Activision was hiding the game from players until they felt like they could release it. On top of all of this, Half-Life 2 Remastered is among the six-month-old list, with the game being mentioned by the developers earlier this year, before the leak.
Does this mean that players should believe everything they read in the leak? No, of course not. It’s still a leak. However, with the fact that the Uncharted PC Port was put in the list, as well as God of War having a link to it’s Steam page, it seems that there’s more than meets the eye to this leak. On top of this, with Destroy All Humans 3 in the list, and the THQ presentation coming up on the 17th, there’s a chance to see if the name from the list has any credence to it. However, it should be mentioned that the list of games doesn’t mean they’re going to be on PC, it means that they’re in the GeForce Now system.
Regardless, players have been speculating about the GeForce leak since its announcement, and they can’t help but get hyped for the possibility that games like these might be coming to the platform. Players should keep an eye out as things develop, there’s a chance that this could be real, but it’s best to take everything with a grain of salt.
