Leaks have become more and more cumbersome over the years, and they somehow slip out even after countless failsafe’s implemented by developers. Players have received major information about upcoming games through leaks, no one is safe from leakers and data miners. The latest victim to leaks is Sony, and it seems that gameplay for their upcoming Sci-Fi title has leaked online.
The leak was found on IconEra (via WhatIfGaming), and it shows a brief glimpse of the upcoming title. In the video, (that has since been taken down) players will see a man in a soldier uniform looking towards an alien that seems to be climbing a building. It has a post apocalyptic setting and many players feel that it draws inspiration from titles like Gears of War and Mass effect.
Through the footage it feels like the game is very early in development and it will be years before we see any official announcement for the title. It has been reported that XDev is responsible for the development for the leaked title. XDev is a development and production team owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment, that operates from Liverpool.
The gameplay was posted on the popular forum by a well-known member called, John Elden Ring. He also provided some more information about the title such as the game in question is an RPG Sci-Fi title and is being developed on Unreal Engine 5. Furthermore, the game is in a very early stage and is in first or second party development by XDev.
