The Last of Us new release accidentally confirmed early by Epic Games leak

The Last of Us new release accidentally confirmed early by Epic Games leak

Oopsie

Well now, this is just awkward.

Epic Games has well and truly dropped the ball with this, after leaking not just the details about an upcoming The Last of Us release, but of multiple other titles as well.

What makes this most intriguing is the fact that Epic Games has done this to itself without realising; no one data mined or hacked, all the details are there for anyone to find.

Check out our review of the console version of The Last of Us Part II Remastered

The Last of Us Part II PC rumours have been rife for some time now, and so, when a well-known leaker claimed such a port would be coming later this year, few doubted them.

However, seeing the proof for yourself is wholly different to relying on the words of another, regardless of how reliable they are.

TLOU isn’t the only franchise listed, there’s also reference to Final Fantasy IX as well; which again, appears to confirm what leakers have previously said.

As revealed on NeoGAF, “A new SteamDB equivalent for Epic Games has recently launched, EpicDB; and with it comes the discovery of a lot of things the public are not meant to have seen.”

The post continues, “Search a publisher name and check their page and you'll find plenty of games / pages (albeit mostly labelled with codenames) that have not been published.”

Among those names is the codename for the PC version of The Last of Us Part II; its known as 'Utah'.

While this find seems 100 percent legitimate because of its source, it’s important to mention that some of the games listed are clearly fake – like the Bloodborne remaster.

Considering how “mocked” fans already feel with PlayStation’s surprise DLC stunt, they could do without false hope like this.

Therefore, it’s wise to remain cautious despite Epic Games being the primary source.

If you fancy doing a little research to decode all the titles there, be our guest. However, if you’d prefer for these upcoming releases to remain a "mystery", you can simply be happy in the knowledge that Epic Games is ready and raring to go with these PC ports*.


*Epic Games has since issued a statement about this matter, saying, "We released an update tonight so third-party tools can’t surface any new unpublished product titles from the Epic Games Store catalog".
