RAGE Twitter Responds to RAGE 2 Retailer Listing

Bethesda's Pete Hines says "This is why we can't have nice things".

It was recently revealed on Walmart Canada’s “New releases” page that several hereto unannounced games could be preordered. While titles like Borderlands 3 and Assassin’s Creed Origins: Ace-Helix weren’t all that surprising, Gears of War 5, Just Cause 4 and RAGE 2 turned a couple of heads. The listings have since been removed but were screencapped for posterity.

While there’s been no official comment on whether a new Gears or Just Cause title will be revealed any time soon (say, at E3 2018), one developer has responded to the retailer listing leak. It comes from the official Twitter for RAGE, of all places, which criticized the listing for using the wrong keyart, the wrong font and a missing age rating. Notice the lack of any actual denial.

To further add to this, Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines further added that “This is why we can’t have nice things.” When asked about where the next Doom was, Hines replied, “Go buy a Magic 8-ball at WalMart and ask it.”

He doesn’t sound like a happy camper but we can’t really blame him. Bethesda’s E3 2018 presser takes place on June 10 at 6:30 PM PT/9:30 PM ET so it won’t be long before we find out the truth.
