On December 2, reputable Fortnite leaker and dataminer @ShiinaBR on Twitter tweeted the following, alleging that they’d been sent information indicating that a new Unreal Engine 5 game for The Matrix Resurrections was on the way. This new game, according to the leaker, will be released alongside the reported crossover event for The Matrix Resurrections, which has been circulating for a few weeks.
The Matrix Awakens is reportedly a tie-in game for the upcoming film that uses Unreal Engine 5.
Suggestion For You:
That’s not all, though. As Gematsu first reported in the tweet just below, an image for The Matrix Awakens has appeared in the PlayStation Network database. This brings an incredible amount of credence to the existence of the leak, and also indicates that the new game will come to PlayStation consoles, and not just PC, where the Unreal Engine 5 is now available to developers.
It’s incredibly difficult to guess what this tie-in game would actually be, since we have zero additional information to go on as of right now. This obviously wouldn’t be the first time The Matrix has strayed into the territory of video games, with The Matrix Online launching as an MMO all the way back in 2005, shortly after the release of both The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions, as well as other titles such as Enter The Matrix and The Matrix: Path of Neo.
With The Matrix Resurrections set to launch worldwide in theatres later this month on December 22, there shouldn’t be long to go now until the supposed tie-in game is announced. Taking advantage of a new-gen engine in the Unreal Engine 5 is a pretty exciting prospect, and this could technically be the first publicly-available game using the engine to be released worldwide.
As for Fortnite though, this particular leaker claimed that both Neo and Trinity would be making their way to Epic’s battle royale game at some point in December, based on datamined information. Here’s hoping it’s not long before both the crossover event with Fortnite and the supposed Unreal Engine 5 game experience are revealed in full.
A promotional image for the product, which is billed as an “Unreal Engine 5 experience,” was published on the PlayStation Network backend with no further details other than it exists for PS5 (via Reddit).
It’s unclear if The Matrix Awakens will be a full game or some sort of film tie-in that takes advantage of Epic’s game engine.
