Hoping he's just another fraud that got lucky once and is making shit up then. Really looking forward to that Bethesda Starfield announcement. Sounds like it will be the first Bethesda game that I'll like since Oblivion!

How can be that lucky to guess the name "Fallout 76"?

Who do you think some random Reddit poster is that has inside info on every major company?

Some of those are so obvious haha, like Death Stranding being shown on Sony’s stage. Uh duh.

I call BS on Sunset Overdrive 2. Insomniac owns the SO IP, so they would have to be the ones making it; however, they have made it clear that their entire team is working on Spider-Man and that this is the biggest team they’ve ever had. And the games will surely not stop after September’s Spider-Man, so Insomniac will be working on Spider-Man for years to come.





Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Fake. A 4Chan leaker knew the Fallout 76 name and that it was a Rust clone 6 months ago. He probably just stole it from that leaker and they both got it right.

Edit: The 4chan leaker 6 months ago did say that Starfield was years away though, so that part might be true.

There's what, 7 billion people in the world? If every one of them guessed what the name of the next Fallout game would be the chances of at least one of them getting it right would be pretty good. ie. throw enough shit at a wall and some of it will stick, especially when you've got a huge number of people flinging shit.

To claim that is meaningless, since we have no idea about the:

1) Number of people guessing the titles of future games, 2) posting it on the internet, 3) claiming it to be true, 4) doing so in the day they are to be announced with no previous hint of it whatsoever; and 5) the chance of specifically sticking the number "76" after "Fallout" as a subtitle, among the countless combinations of words and numbers, and getting it right under the aforementioned circumstances.

On the other hand, there is the chance someone with insider knowledge merely decided to collect information about the E3 and leak it online.

The former is possibly harder than the lottery, the later, not so much.

Of course, we don't know the chance of legitimately having information about Fallout 76 and then deliberately try to spread false information in order to gather attention, either.

This looks mostly very predictable.

Square have pretty much already confirmed that KH3 is releasing this year, it would be more noteworthy if this leaker gave a date since Square Enix have said they have a date and will reveal it around E3.

I think I've read elsewhere that Death Stranding was going to be at E3 but I didn't pay much attention, this doesn't seem like a surprise though.

Halo is to be expected and so is Forza .

The Nintendo conference is bound to cover Metroid and Yoshi since they are already announced and Yoshi is nearing release.

Bethesda would likely have a bit more saved for E3 and Cyberpunk 2077 is pretty likely too.

Fortnite seems a given since it's on literally everything else, I expect some cross play with other systems. Fallout is no surprise either since Skyrim already went to the Switch.

As far as I'm concerned he's going to get the bulk of this correct anyway so we'll see if the few ones like a new Punch Out and F-Zero turn out to be true, but it seems the Nintendo stuff was already leaked elsewhere so he might not even have real knowledge of these. If he's right about Sunset Overdrive 2 (it's plausible since Insomniac both want to make it and are under contract for another Xbox game I believe) and new Gears of War, then maybe he knows something but almost all of this is either very likely anyway or already leaked i.e. the Nintendo stuff.

True, but what are the odds this guy went snooping around for unkown Fallout related leaks on the interwebs, picked out a rando 4Chan leak and then posted it to Reddit 4 hours prior to the announcement on a 6 year old account without any posts until recently and it turned out to be true? He has to have at least some kind of source.



Sunset 2, F-zero and Starfox are the only things that aren't expected.

He obviously knew about Fallout, but it doesn't mean he knows about Microsoft and Nintendo.

Much higher than someone having all the major information of every company at e3. Especially considering that Bethesda teased something.

Parts of this just seems super fake to me. As much as I want Sunset Overdrive 2 to be real, Insomniac suggested just a few months ago that it still wasn't in development. So unless it has been greenlit since then, and MS is announcing it several years too soon, I can't see it being real. 

The Starfield part seems fake as well, a ResetEra verified insider said it would be announced at E3 and release later this year just a month or two ago.

Parts of the Nintendo document leak look fake to me. 

Lastly, he teases an Elder Scrolls 6 announcement next E3, but Bethesda has already said they have 2 AAA games releasing before Elder Scrolls 6. One of them is Fallout 76 obviously, Starfield is the other one according to multiple leaks and the official Bethesda trademark, but if Starfield isn't announced at this E3 like he says, then it will be announced next E3, and I can't see Bethesda announcing both Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 on the same E3.
