‘Rage 2,’ ‘Just Cause 4,’ ‘Gears of War 5’ Appear on Walmart Pre-Order Page

Walmart Canada apparently leaked a bunch of unannounced video game titles on its website Wednesday.

The listings included pre-orders for AAA titles like “Rage 2,” “Just Cause 4,” “Gears of War 5,” “Borderlands 3,” and “Lego DC Villains.” There were also placeholders for sequels we do know about, such as “Tom Clancy’s The Division 2,” “Beyond Good & Evil 2,” and “The Last of Us 2.”

Many of the leaked games have since been removed from the site, but you can check them out in the screengrab below, courtesy of @Wario64 on Twitter. They might not all be accurate, take them with a grain of salt, etc., but it’s likely Walmart just spoiled a couple of E3 surprises.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) takes place June 12-14 in Los Angeles. Publishers usually make big announcements and reveals at the annual media event, but it’s not unusual for information to leak in the weeks leading up to it.

Last year, leakers spilled the beans on “Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle,” leading to a flurry of incredulity on social media (Mario and Rabbids!? Yes, and it was pretty damn good.). Details about “Star Wars: Battlefront II” also got out hours ahead of Electronic Arts’ E3 press conference, along with an image teasing a new BioWare IP that turned out to be the upcoming online RPG “Anthem.” That last leak came courtesy of @Wario64 as well.
