Alleged GeForce leak data features PC release dates for Final Fantasy XVI, IX Remake, and Tactics Remaster
The Nvidia GeForce leak saga may not be over just yet, as a new repository reveals alleged release dates for hundreds of games. Among those titles are Square Enix projects, dating Final Fantasy XVI and unannounced games like a Final Fantasy IX remake and Tactics remaster.
Back in September, a GeForce Now database leak revealed thousands of titles listed for the service but not yet available. Among those leaks were major triple-A games, some public knowledge and others completely unannounced. The list contained a mix of projects that went on to be confirmed—like God of War (2018) for PC and the GTA remasters—and some that seemed a little too good to be true. In a statement to The Verge, Nvidia called the list “speculative” and said it was to be “used only for internal tracking and testing.” So the first list is real, but Nvidia denies it’s a confirmation for anything.
In a new thread on Reddit from user MatthewSkopinsky1, a second GitHub listing gives some of those same games release dates. The document is a month old, unconfirmed, and is purged of any Ubisoft titles after the company issued DMCA takedowns for any leaked documents uploaded with its games mentioned. Some RPGs among the list include:
- Avowed (12/07/2022)
- Chrono Cross Remaster (12/01/2021)
- Final Fantasy IX Remake (04/01/2022)
- Final Fantasy XVI (03/01/2023)
- Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster (02/01/2022)
- Forspoken (03/01/2022)
- Kingdom Hearts IV (09/30/2023)
- Shin Megami Tensei V (02/01/2022)
- The Elder Scrolls VI (01/02/2024)
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero (09/30/2022)
- Tactics Ogre Remaster (03/01/2022)
These aren’t official dates and many appear to serve as placeholders for months, given that several default to the first-of-the-month. Plenty appear to be too big of a stretch, with some unannounced projects allegedly out soon. Since the list hasn’t seen any recent updates, dates for confirmed projects like the Grand Theft Auto remasters are wrong—it’s out on November 11, but the repository still has November 1.
This second version of the GeForce Now database leak has yet to be confirmed by Nvidia, and the original GitHub upload has since been pulled. While the nature of a ‘leak’ like this makes it difficult to confirm as genuine and even more difficult to discern between placeholder and reality, it’s still an interesting development given some of the original listings went on to be announced for PC.
