Nvidia leak lists unannounced and "speculative" Xbox titles, including Gears 6

By Sean Carey,
Nvidia has released a statement on a leak that supposedly revealed several upcoming projects from Xbox Game Studios and other companies.


Yesterday, a developer named Ighor July revealed in a blog post how he was able to access the database of Nvidia's GeForce Now streaming service. The contents of the database were published online and allegedly refer to PC games in testing, including some titles from Xbox Game Studios and other third-party developers and publishers. A list of games based on the data was compiled by Steam DB creator Pavel Djundik, which includes unannounced Xbox Game Studios titles such as Gears 6 and several codenamed projects (Project Holland, Project Typhoon, Project Woodstock, Project Oxide, and Indus).

As Windows Central points out, Project Holland is believed to be the Fable Reboot, Project Typhoon relates to Avalance Studios' upcoming action game Contraband, and Project Woodstock supposedly relates to Forza. The list also mentions an "unannounced" title that's being developed by The Initiative, which is likely the Perfect Dark reboot announced last year. Windows Central believes that Project Oxide, known as 'Project Indus' internally, is "a strategy/simulation title, drawing inspiration from the city-building genre."

Halo 5: Guardians for PC also makes an appearance; however, 343 Industries' Brian Jarrard has since ruled out bringing Halo 5 to PC as the studio "is fully focused on Infinite and MCC."

In a statement given to Wccftech, Nvidia responded to the leak, suggesting that some of the games on the list are used for "internal tracking and testing" only.

"Nvidia is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing. Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game.

"Nvidia took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed."

While it's worth taking the leak with a huge pinch of salt until companies start confirming some of the games on the list, Windows Central understands that "several entries tie back to genuine unannounced projects currently in development," and that the database includes "codenames for internal Microsoft projects, adding credence to at least some of those titles named."
