Nvidia Leaked Games List Feels Like a Mix of Real and Fake Projects

While that statement could be interpreted as at least a partial denial of the complete validity of this list, the devil may be in the wording. For instance, Nvidia notes that “no confidential game builds or personal information were exposed,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean the names themselves aren’t accurate. They also say that the list consists of “released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing,” but the word speculative is actually open to some interpretation in this instance, especially if you’re talking about a company that is as inside as Nvidia.

Basically, the conclusion that most people have reached regarding this list is that every game on it is there for a different reason and that it ultimately consists of a blend of verified, essentially verified, likely, speculative, and probably fictional titles. The big question now is, “Which of these games are real and which are fake?”

While our thoughts regarding the legitimacy of most of the individual titles on this list are also mostly speculative, my guess is that the vast majority of these titles were added to the service as placeholder entries or were perhaps intended to be used as part of a “pitch” to developers for possible GeForce partnerships sometime down the line. That is the most likely explanation for games like BioShock 2022, Titanfall 3, and MGS 2 & 3 HD being on here, as those are games that have been floating around the rumor mill for some time but seem highly unlikely at this point. Meanwhile, games like Kingdom Hearts IV, Xcom 3, and Street Fighter 6 will probably be released at some point but are a long way from being confirmed at the moment.

The PlayStation games included on this list are especially interesting, though. We know that Sony is interested in bringing more PlayStation exclusives to PC, but are they really preparing to port Demon’s Souls, God of War, Returnal, Gran Turismo 7, and more?

The answer is…maybe. Some of those games will most likely come to PC at some point, but this feels like more of an internal blanket approach intended to cover the most likely possibilities. I’ve heard some speculation that the games on this list could be related to a possible partnership between GeForce Now and PlayStation Now, but there isn’t a lot out there to support that theory at this time.

I also wouldn’t make anything of the Nintendo games included in the leak. While it’s possible to play select Nintendo games via the Nvidia Shield in China, it’s highly doubtful that Nvidia or Nintendo would expand that functionality in the near future.
