Some high profile, unannounced games have popped up on Amazon Italy.
There have been just way too many high profile leaks for games in the last few weeks and months, but perhaps the one that had fans excited the most, and the only one that sadly didn’t get confirmed as reality, was a new Splinter Cell game. It was one of the games that was leaked by Walmart Canada ahead of E3 2018, with many people expecting that an announcement would be coming at Ubisoft’s press conference, but while almost every other game that was part of the leak was confirmed during E3, Splinter Cell remained absent.
We’re hearing more about the game now. As spotted by a user on forum ResetEra, Amazon Italy put up three listings for the game (one each for Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions), though it seems that the listings have since been removed. We’re not really sure what this means- whether or not this signifies that Amazon Italy have some knowledge about stuff that we don’t that they somehow let slip isn’t something I can say for sure. What I can say is that there’s no smoke without fire, and as far as a new Splinter Cell game is concerned, there’s been a lot of smoke lately. Come on, Ubisoft, spit it out already.
It doesn’t end there, though. Two more pretty high profile games that were listed by Amazon Italy were Sunset Overdrive 2 and Bloodborne 2. However, just like Splinter Cell, both these listings have also been taken down. I have to say, though, that these two seem quite unlikely. Especially Bloodborne 2, because while such an announcement would undoubtedly be the stuff of dreams, From Software just have too much on their plate already, with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and VR title Deracine already in development.
There’s some other noteworthy stuff coming out of Amazon Italy as well. On their listing of the upcoming Media Molecule developed Dreams, you’ll see that they’ve mentioned February 22nd of 2019 as the game’s release date (UPDATE: This page also seems to have been taken down by Amazon Italy). Again, this seems unlikely, because Sony already have another major first party exclusive, namely Days Gone, scheduled for launch that very day. I just don’t see how it’s likely that Sony will be launching two of their upcoming exclusives on the exact same day.
So yeah, take all this with a grain of salt. It seems unlikely that Sunset Overdrive 2 and Bloodborne 2 are a thing – for now, at least – while the release date mentioned for Dreams also seems quite unlikely. The Splinter Cell listing, too, might just be based on all the recent speculation, but you never know. Either way, stick with GamingBolt and we’ll keep you updated.
