There will be a game based on The Matrix in the near future

Is this a full-fledged game? It’s really unlikely. The image was discovered on the PlayStation Network backend, and it appears to be a Matrix bomb exploding over a big city (or, less ominously, a Matrix sun climbing over the horizon, warming the good inhabitants of the city with its life-giving Matrix rays). “Only that it exists for the PS5” is all that is known.

The Matrix is becoming increasingly meta. The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth instalment in the series, is slated to hit theatres later this month, resurrecting (get it?) the stylish cyber-dystopian tale of false lives. According to a leak that surfaced on Reddit today, we’ll also be getting “an Unreal Engine 5 experience” dubbed The Matrix Awakens at some point.

The “experience” descriptor makes me think it might be something more akin to the recent Kid A Mnesia exhibition by Radiohead and Epic (you know, the company that makes the Unreal Engine). A deep dive into the nooks and crannies of the Matrix, perhaps, coupled with a walking tour of the real city of Zion and the machine world above as well.

But it’s the possible existence of a game-like tie-in to The Matrix Resurrections, rather than specifics about its nature, that I find especially interesting. The Wachowskis embraced videogames as the future of The Matrix in a 2005 interview with IGN, in which they said that gamers would “inherit the storyline” following the conclusion of the film trilogy. The Matrix Online failed to catch fire and closed in 2009 after less than five years of operation, but the confluence between the real world and online life—gaming in particular—has never been stronger than it is right now, and neither have the threats it poses.

I’ve reached out to Epic for comment on the leak and, unsurprisingly, have received no response. But my guess is that if the leak is legit, we’ll be hearing more soon: The Matrix Resurrections hits theaters and HBO Max on December 22, and The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley’s annual extravaganza of trailers and trophies—a perfect platform for a big Matrix reveal—takes place on December 9.

The “expertise” descriptor makes me assume it could be one thing extra akin to the current Kid A Mnesia exhibition by Radiohead and Epic (, the corporate that makes the Unreal Engine). A deep dive into the nooks and crannies of the Matrix, maybe, coupled with a strolling tour of the true metropolis of Zion and the machine world above as properly.
