Nvidia leak might reveal unannounced video games, together with God of Conflict for PC
In case you made an Nvidia GeForce Now server spit out a confidential record of 1000’s of video games, some never-before-seen, would you suppose they have been legit? Pretend? Someplace in between? That’s not a rhetorical query, as a result of developer Ighor July has discovered such a listing — together with video games just like the PlayStation unique God of Conflict seemingly coming to Home windows PC by way of Steam. In case you’d prefer to scan it your self, SteamDB creator Pavel Djundik revealed a model to GitHub, too.
Right here’s a screenshot of what that appears like within the GeForce Now shopper, in accordance with the developer:
There are causes to imagine a few of what the record comprises is perhaps legit. Nvidia confirmed to The Verge that it’s an actual record, though the corporate claims it’s “used just for inner monitoring and testing” and contains “speculative titles.”
We all know graphics large Nvidia has entry to video games lengthy earlier than they’re launched — and we all know Sony in significantly has been banking on banking on PlayStation video games on PC. It quietly revealed Uncharted 4 was coming to PC, after seeing a 250 p.c return on its funding porting Horizon: Zero Daybreak to the platform, and it was simply Thursday that Sony introduced that recreation would could be a part of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Assortment — a title that we’d by no means heard of earlier than then, however already seems in Nvidia’s record as nicely.
So too do Demon’s Souls and Ultimate Fantasy XVI — the video games the place Sony needed to retroactively retract all mentions of PC to make them sound like PlayStation exclusives. PS5 unique Returnal seems as nicely, as does a Ultimate Fantasy VII Remake for PC.
And there are codenames for video games in right here that appear unique, ones that deliver up zero search outcomes. Is “Platinum” the inner title for Bethesda’s Indiana Jones video games? Appears so.
However there are additionally a whole lot of mentions that appear moderately outdated or misplaced, like an entire host of Fb-exclusive Oculus Rift titles that may make little sense on Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service, or a point out of a “Titanfall 3” which clarifies that it’s really “GAMEapex_legends_-_titanfall,” aka Apex Legends, the favored battle royale recreation. And a few of them might merely be guesses, like Kingdom Hearts IV, “BioShock 2022,” and so forth.
All of meaning it’s best to most likely take any given title on the record with a grain of salt — perhaps don’t get your hopes up for remasters of Chrono Cross, Techniques Ogre, or Half-Life 2 fairly but, even when all of these seem within the doc.
However God of Conflict for PC does appear extra strong than others. It’s considered one of a handful of titles that particularly mentions Steam.
Right here’s Nvidia’s full assertion:

NVIDIA took quick motion to take away entry to the record. No confidential recreation builds or private info have been uncovered.
