Walmart Canada seems to have posted a massive leak of unannounced games to the pre-order listing section of its website.

With E3 just around the corner, the list is interesting to say the least. Titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands 3, and Gears of War 5 are some of the exciting, but not out of the ordinary featured titles on the listing. However, Splinter Cell, LEGO DC Villains (spelled as “Villans”), and, perhaps most notably, Rage 2 are curious choices to say the least.
The original Rage is a cult classic from 2010, so a sequel coming eight years later is more than possible. The game’s official Twitter account posted a humorous response to Walmart’s listing, essentially confirming the game.

Furthermore, with Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher making an appearance in Ghost Recon Wildlands‘ newest update, a new Splinter Cell title is also a promising aspect as well.
While this majority of games on the list should be treated as merely a rumor, there is no denying the perfect timing the presence some of these games could have at E3.
Further adding to the drama of the situation was Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines, who sent out some tweets condemning the Walmart missteps. One user tweeted at Hines asking where the next Doom game is to which Hines responded, “Go buy a Magic 8-ball at Walmart and ask it.”
