Gods & Monsters – Ubisoft comments on leak, will have a new name, more news this summer
After an accidental leak yesterday, some Google Stadia users were able to try out an early build from Ubisoft’s Gods & Monsters. As it turns out, this was a version shown to the press at E3 2019, so it is significantly dated.
Ubisoft has since commented on the leak. Executive producer Marc-Alexis Cote told Kotaku that a lot has changed, including the name of the game. Additional news will follow at the end of summer.
Cote’s full statement reads:
“Our vision for the game formerly known as Gods & Monsters has evolved in surprising ways, which is common when developing exciting new worlds. This footage is from our E3 2019 demo, which was shown to select press last June and is now over one year old. Much has changed since then in terms of features, tone, art and character design, and even the name of the game. We are hard at work and very excited to finally show players what we have created at the end of summer.”
According to a Google Stadia rep, “a few hundred gamers” accessed the E3 2019 build on Thursday. “We sincerely apologize to our partners at Ubisoft for this mistake,” the company said.
