    Since we don't have a thread for this, just made one. Dump whatever random leaks & legitimate looking rumours here.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So this dude at reddit has been going on about a bunch games for next gen mainly from Square Enix.

    Sauce: https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLeak...dditors_because_of_the_amount_of_responses_i/

    Anyway, here are some of the interesting bits.
    -Apparently a sequel to Mankind Divided is in the works for next gen.
    -Tomb Raider sequel as well, but currently paused to work on Avengers.
    -Thief will be returning again.

    Fckn hope the Deus Ex sequel is true. I really doubt any current development studios can do justice to Thief.


    Edit: Jason Schreier says the massive SE rumor dump is a lie

    --

    A bunch of Zelda rumours from 4chan seems fake..
    New Zelda Information via 7ch.
    >Game logo and title revealed as Bond Of The Triforce
    >trailer relatively soon
    >Zelda playable in dungeons for puzzle solving. Switch between them in real time.
    >Zelda tags along with link in the overworld and now can harness the power of nature to assist link such as changing the weather.
    >animals will play a much larger role in the gameplay. Rideable bear shown in trailer.
    >new enemies leevers and tektites and some sort of snake enemy shown.
    >magic gage seen. May be for Zelda.
    >slingshot returns as well as a new plow looking weapon link uses to change into a large horde of enemies.
    >visually looks a lot like BOTW. Music playing is a remix of the Zelda 2 title theme.

    A lot of them have come true though. Here is one everyone was convinced 100% bullshit: https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinsc..._i_believe_the_twitter_leak_is_fake/?sort=new
    It's the AC Odyssey leak. And what do you know...

    Also on that note here is a legitimate looking leak for AC Ragnarok/Vikings: https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLeak...ejl0/assassins_creed_ragnarok_new_4chan_leak/
    the 4chan page got removed.

    Anyway, if it's not social media and anonymous forums where else do you expect to post leaks? Infact I posted about a character which wasn't available in Soul Calibur at the time of it's release on a thread in Codex. Mostly just venting they didn't have Cassandra on release but you get the point.
    PS: Worked as a Game Tester, only Bandai Namco games but.

    The less references and contact made with either of those sites the better.

    And here is the thing about all these leaks and rumors and such, what is the point?

    A: The leak is wrong and it is meaningless.
    B: The leak is correct in which case what do you gain? You have some information about a game before it is released, so what. How does this change anything about what the game will be or what you will get out of the game. Arguably it's a net negative because you are exhausting all information about the game before you've even had a chance to play it.

    You gain nothing from a leak and the only noticeable change brought about by a leak is that the developers themselves suffer because they have to contend with said leak of information.

    Leaks are just another source of dopamine creation. A deeper form of marketing.

    We must resist.

    Apparently Resident Evil 8 is pretty far along into development (not surprising), retaining first person view.

    Also Konami supposedly has 2 Silent Hill games in the works.

    Read it on DSOGaming, don't know what their source is, probably twitter, reddit, whatever.

    Actually, when it comes to game leaks 4chan must the place with the highest number of leaks that turned out to be true.
    I remember there was a leak on /v/, almost 1 year before DMC5 e3 reveal, that turned out to be correct in every aspect.

    You gain at least the basic information about the game without any marketing speak and an insigth into the development.
    Plus leaks aren't just about upcoming games, but also cancelled projects, changes in the studio, etc...

    Yes, real leaks exist on 4chan but 99,99% of the leaks there are complete bs.

    Return of TB is a given
    A new Thief? Nope zero chance
    A sequel to Mankind Divided is at least possible

    Oh I 100% believe Bethesda not understanding the lore of their own IPs.

    A leak may be true, but that doesn't mean there will be a game. Something like half of all games in development are cancelled before they're even announced.

    Paying attention to leaks just means you'll let yourself get excited about games you are unlikely to ever play.

    As agentorange said, there's little to gain from a leak about a game in development, and what its features may be.

    But a leak about the game's development, a behind-the-scenes look at what's going on... that's another story.

    I heard a rumor that starfield is cancelled at the moment due to the failure of 76, and zenimax possibly in the process of being bought out by some corp that invested a few million into them, or by sony. But the sony thing is blatantly ridiculous. Although considiering the recent cacophony of failures of Zenimax/Bethesda, the deal could've been cancelled.

    I heard a rumor that the government is working on a new law that basically renders playing games offline illegal.

    DMC5SE
    will include online Coop Bloody Palace, along with Vergil, Trish, Lady and Lucia as additional playable characters, and 4 new cutscenes.
    Two DMC spinoff projects are being considered, one based off the canceled PSP DMC title, and the other a sequel to DmC developed internally at Capcom.

    Dino Crisis remake coming after Resident Evil 8

    Megaman Legends collection in active development should release by fall 2020 or early 2021
