Bethesda Teases RAGE2 Following Retailer Leak

Walmart Canada seems to have posted a massive leak of unannounced games to the pre-order listing section of its website.

Twitter user Wario64 uncovered the list—which has since been removed—and posted it in all of its rumor-filled glory earlier today.

With E3 just around the corner, the list is interesting to say the least. Titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands 3, and Gears of War 5 are some of the exciting, but not out of the ordinary featured titles on the listing. However, Splinter Cell, LEGO DC Villains (spelled as “Villans”), and, perhaps most notably, Rage 2 are curious choices to say the least.

The original Rage is a cult classic from 2010, so a sequel coming eight years later is more than possible. The game’s official Twitter account posted a humorous response to Walmart’s listing, essentially confirming the game.

Furthermore, with Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher making an appearance in Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ newest update, a new Splinter Cell title is also a promising aspect as well.

While this majority of games on the list should be treated as merely a rumor, there is no denying the perfect timing the presence some of these games could have at E3.

Further adding to the drama of the situation was Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines, who sent out some tweets condemning the Walmart missteps. One user tweeted at Hines asking where the next Doom game is to which Hines responded, “Go buy a Magic 8-ball at Walmart and ask it.”

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
