With E3 (and all the rest of the summer’s gaming events) about to begin, here’s a look at what we’ve seen before we were meant to see it.
E3 season is a time of big announcements and reveals, and game publishers put a lot of effort into keeping their surprises secret until the big moment arrives. But no matter how hard they try to keep every secret tucked away, leaks always find a way to spring forth in the days and weeks leading up to their grand events.
Are they really so bad? You may lose out on that singular moment of pure surprise, but some leaks can actually drive pre-announcement hype to even higher levels by spurring anticipation for a big game. There’s a big difference between hoping for something and having a reasonable expectation (with screenshots!) that it’s going to happen, after all. Whether you live for ’em or hate them, leaks are inevitable, and 2021 has already given us a bunch of them.
💧 Two Point Campus – The follow-up to Two Point Hospital appeared prematurely on the Microsoft Store last week, and while it was taken down in relatively short order, the listing was around long enough for everyone to get a good look. Two Point Campus will let players build and manage their own institute of higher learning, where students can enrol in courses like Knight School and Gastronomy, which will teach them to make “giant pizzas and enormous pies.” Obviously it’s ready to go, so I expect to see this one made official during the Xbox/Bethesda showcase.
💧 Marvel XCOM game – 2K Games gave us a two-for-one leak last week, beginning with a “turn-based action game” from Firaxis, codenamed CODA and described as “XCOM with Marvel heroes.” Personally, I’d rather just have XCOM, but this one might have a better shot at building an audience than Square Enix’s struggling Avengers game: The source of the leak said characters will be voiced by “famous actors,” opening the door to the possibility that the game may tie in with the Marvel films rather than comics.
