Calling out rumors, insiders and "sources"

God of War Ragnarok release date announcement late in June.

June goes by, no release date.

How's that not false?
It's not false because things changed last minute in a work environment. It happens very often in marketing and game development.

Jason has a very good track record and so does The Snitch and Tom Henderson. But it's clear you just want to feel good about yourself and feed your own ego and call people out at every chance you get. You care so much about proving who's fake or not on a RANDOM video game forum to RANDOM people you'll never meet in your life. Sad.

Do you really have nothing better to do? Who gives a fuck, play your games and if someone's wrong then that's their problem lol. It doesn't change anything. What are you gonna do..sue them and false leaks will all of a sudden disappear? Lol.

The reality is that Sony came in and threw a curve ball due to internal last minute changes. Please continue to be delusional and continue to embarrass yourself and look like a clown that you already are.

Crawl back in the sewers please you sewer ginger and proceed to eat the children that you normally do. It's a better place for your :)

In fairness we don't actually know what Sony's intent was just what these guys said
True. I'm trying to go off the track record of the ones "reporting" on the GOWR announcement that have more credible track records and the corroboration between them.
Either they're all lying, or they were intentionally misled by their sources, or things have recently changed internally at Santa Monica Studio.
Given their track records I have little reason to believe they would push a false rumor without due diligence. The other possibilities are equally likely. I just don't know which one is the truth, could be a combination of both.

Either way, if the game is still on track for this year, it's not the end of the world.

I probably missed it but did Jason ever say June 30th from his sources or did he just go with what the Snitch said if you know either way that is?

I believe that Jason said an announcement was happening later in June. Followed by the snitch's tweet in morse code the number "30", which many deduced it to being June 30th.

You still salty about your leak about the "New mariokart" sequel being all wrong. Your leaker defense force bias is showing.

Obviously went to give the ❌ to @accngt regarding Sly Cooper and InFamous development rumor, tried to revisit the original tweet but it's no longer to be found, and its account deleted profile and banner pictures, aswell as all tweets. Don't know what his new account is (if any), so if you have anything on this guy share it here.

To the trash can it goes.

Also, @Shpeshal_Nick becomes one of the LEAST realiable "leakers" out there with high number of ❌ since he started being tracked in this thread (100% wrong in fact)

Has Nick ever been right about anything? Feel like I constantly see tons of rumors with this guy's name attached to them and none ever come true.

Please share any actual rumor and I'll add it.
I won't add any rumor from totally unsustained sources (i.e. a random post in 4chan/reddit from unknown accounts)



Absolute pieces of shit whose words worth less than dog's vomit and from whom I won't ever be bothered to waste space for rumors in the table and I recommend you to not share here nor anywhere regarding gaming rumors:

Very good post. Time to call out the liars.

What was the pre-PS5 release rumor? A familliar face vs a bug alien in a dark room? I think people theorized Resistance or RE at the time? Did that turn out to be anything.

Found @accngt goodbye letter


Hey all,

Yesterday, Sucker Punch Productions made a statement, quote:
"With our focus on our current project, we have no plans to revisit inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper right now, and no other studio is currently working on projects related to those franchises either. These characters are very special and near and dear to our hearts, so while we’d never say never to re-opening those doors down the road, for now there are no inFAMOUS or Sly Cooper games in development.".

In other words, there are NO Infamous or Sly Cooper games in development at Sucker Punch or other studios. After seeing this, I decided it was time to move from the "insider" scene.

First of all, I wanted to talk about Infamous and Sly. In March, I made a tweet saying that I corroborated the rumors. It wasn't crap I did myself, a source came to me, gave me ways to trust him and gave me other information including the delay of Forspoken, new Hogwarts Legacy reveal in March, the fact there wasn't any PlayStation Showcase until September and a few other things I haven't said publicly. I do think he is a reliable source THAT HAS reliable sources, that's just proxies. Although Sly & Infamous has been officially confirmed as false if Sucker Punch is not lying. For Sly he told me that he was confident and promised me that it existed and that an announcement would be made soon, weeks ago. Here is his reaction to yesterday's announcement: ()

Now, I will tell how I started my "leaking career" 😂 :
I was monitoring Quantic Dream websites for a long time to try to get a chance to leak a game early. That happened I think on December 2/3 of last year I leaked 2 images of Star Wars: Eclipse (I'm pretty hyped about it btw) that were on Quantic Dream website backend (now deleted).
When Star Wars Eclipse was revealed at The Game Awards 2021, a few people made reddit posts and shared my account because of my leak, I gained a lot of followers. I continued "leaking" Quantic Dream info, including a game based on The Dark Sorcerer; I got the info that Quantic Dream was building a humor based game in a fantasy world by Tom Henderson himself in DMs. Though, it was confirmed untrue a few days ago in an interview with Quantic Dream's CEO David Cage: (https://multiplayer.it/notizie/quantic-dream-smentisce-nessun-gioco-basato-su-the-dark-sorcerer.html).
To be honest, I think Quantic Dream other AAA game is a stylized competitive multiplayer one developed by QD Paris Team.

I leaked that the Star Wars game from Skydance New Media was codenamed "Project Walton", which was 100% real. And that it is based in original trilogy, which I can't 100% confirm but that's likely in my opinion.

The Marmolade made a great TwitLonger here though a few things are untrue: (https://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1ss032u)

I still thank my community that supported me. I have something to say: don't trust anyone on the internet even if he has a good trackrecord.

Goodbye!

Do you think I believe all he speaks is being made up just because one of his rumors turned out to not be true?

Please point out where do I say he's making stuff up, or that he suddently becomes not reliable at all?. I'm just trying to corroborate how accurate these people are. He just missed this one. I won't give them a free pass just because they backpedal on their initial statements (Just like I did with Grubb and his GoldenEye rumor).

Could you give him a check please?

Thank you.

I still think you need to add Jason leaking us GOWs release date. He was one of the first ones to give us that information I believe. Doesn't matter that it was announced a week later than he said it would.
