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.

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 they have 2 AAA game 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. 

Overdrive 2 and the Nintendo doc seem rather iffy to me as well. As for Elder Scrolls 6, I dunno if he's actually teasing it. Even if he is, Starfield is a trademark owned by Zenimax meaning it could be developed by any of their studios, not just Bethesda Softworks. A ResetEra insider has plenty more credibility than this guy as it stands right now though.

Lots of times these "leakers" will embed one nugget of truth in with a bunch of BS in order to pass off the BS stuff as being real as well. For instance, just a few weeks ago there was a leaker who knew the exact date that Nintendo would announce details for Switch's online service. However, several other things from his leak have since been proven untrue. For instance, he said the Sonic Racing game would be announced at Nintendo's E3 conference and would feature Sonic on foot with some other character in Karts, that part was confirmed fake today, as Sonic is in a kart just like the rest of the characters

Didn't that guy state that he got lucky with the date himself afterwards though?

Must be fake, no Playstation All Stars 2

Exactly what I was thinking, we all KNOW it's coming, it's this year's "big surprise" at E3... gotta' believe! *fingers crossed*



Sony's E3 is gonna be so dry of new stuff that even "leakers" didn't bother making stuff up about it

 

also guys. calm down, because fallout 76 was originally leaked 6 months ago so he isn't original. and the nintendo list is suspect because they speicifically said htey wont show anything isn't coming in 2018. and a bunch of that stuff wont

Fallout 76! Damn, I totally blacked out on the series, last one I played was Fallout 4.

What's wrong? You don't like the sound of Yoshi's Flipping Island? It's his flipping Island after all! Not yours! HIS!

I would love for the title of the Yoshi game to be real though. Yoshi's Flipping Island sounds like someone pissed at Yoshi's Island trying to avoid swearing. "I have to play Yoshi's FLIPPING Island"

Shame on you for skipping Fallout 69, without a doubt the best game of this generation.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....
