Leaked PlayStation Plus Games List Proven To Be Fake, Statement Inside
Recently it was learned that PlayStation Plus might soon introduce titles such as From Software’s Dark Souls II and Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 as the next free games for February 2018. The supposedly leaked promotional image was enough to draw mild skepticism from the internet, especially since anyone could have easily manipulated it through various means. Now it looks as though the leaked PlayStation Plus list was indeed a complete fake.
Confirmed via a post on Reddit, the origin of the “leak” came from user George Awad, who had intended to only share the image as a joke on Facebook. The image was said to have “spread like wildfire” after being shared on Reddit, where Awad decided to finally put the leak to rest. Backing up Awad’s claims, a screenshot featuring his work in Adobe Photoshop was also shared, which can be seen in the post below.
Hi my name is George Awad I’m the creator of the image thats been going around like wildfire and to prove it I’ll provide this image where I moved a few thing around. I made this as a joke on facebook and someone put this on reddit and it spred like wildfire. from PlayStationPlus
This new revelation will undoubtedly disappoint many PlayStation Plus subscribers, but we have to appreciate George Awad fully coming clean on the matter. With the February slate cleared, any number of free games could be introduced in their place, with announcements usually taking place before the end of the month. Since speculation is now back on, wouldn’t it be a pip if Sony decided to go with those “leaked” titles anyways? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
What do you think? Are you upset we won’t be getting Dark Souls II for free, or are you holding out hope the formerly leaked PlayStation Plus list is still real?
