Nvidia dumped the PC versions of God of War and Half-Life 2. According to speculation, the leaked data was "speculative".

Points Highlighted:

  • A recent Reddit post compiled a list of the database entries exposed in the leak. Among them are the aforementioned PS5 games as well as entries like Titanfall 3, Resident Evil 4 Remake, and Monster Hunter 6.

  • While Nvidia didn’t explain what the entries are used for, it’s likely that developers add faux entries to test features, such as UI or functionality. Something like the PS4-exclusive God of War could eventually come to PC (it seems more likely than ever), but in this instance, it might have just been a made-up entry for testing purposes.

As for Half-Life 2 Remastered, another entry in the database, we’ve asked Valve whether or not it means anything, but haven’t heard back. Don’t read too much into that: Whether or not Valve responds to questions has not historically indicated anything at all. Just Valve being Valve.

It’s hard to know whether every single game in the list is pure Nvidia engineer fiction, or if some of them are legit. There have been reports of games like Resident Evil 4 Remake and a new BioShock being in development, though Nvidia employees could conceivably have made those entries while knowing exactly as much as we do.

New Super Mario Bros Wii is also listed on Ighor’s blog, and unless we’ve flipped to a bizarro world where the Canucks are going to win the Stanley Cup next year and Nintendo puts games on PC, we’re pretty sure Nvidia’s telling the truth about it being meaningless. (Although Nintendo did once partner with Nvidia to put games on the Nvidia Shield in China, weirdly.)

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
