Fortnite-maker Epic Games ‘massive’ data leak hints at piles of unannounced games

Fortnite-maker Epic Games’s future plans may have been leaked online. According to a report, a massive leak via EpicDB – a database project for the Epic Games Store – has provided information about plenty of unannounced games, including titles from major publishers, that the video game company will bring to its store.
As per a report in The Verge (via Wccftech), the database included details from yet-to-be-published games from a variety of publishers, including Bethesda, Sega, Square Enix, Rockstar, PlayStation and Microsoft.
While some games can be easily identified, others are listed with codenames, such as “Parkside” or BioShock 4. The games with codenames are speculated to be Final Fantasy 9 remake (codename: Momo), “Selma” which may be the PC port of Red Dead Redemption 1 and the “Utah” codename may be associated with the PC version of The Last of Us Part 2.

What Epic Games have to say

Epic Games has provided an update which will prevent third-party sites like EpicDB from scraping its list of unpublished games.
“We released an update tonight so third-party tools can’t surface any new unpublished product titles from the Epic Games Store catalog,” Epic Games said.

Microsoft Xbox leak

Last year, a trove of leaked documents revealed critical details about the Xbox’s future plans, including the launch of a disc-less Xbox Series X console, a new controller and a cloud-hybrid console and several unannounced games from Bethesda.
Microsoft Xbox chief Phil Spencer then wrote an email to employees saying that it was “disappointing” to see the way employees’ hard work was disclosed.
“We’ve seen the conversation around old emails and documents. It is hard to see our team’s work shared in this way because so much has changed and there’s so much to be excited about right now, and in the future. We will share the real plans when we are ready,” he said.

He, however, added that the documents were old and the plans have ‘evolved’.
