Nvidia's leaked list of future PC Games isn't real; it's "speculative"
When speaking to WccfTech, a representative of Nvidia had the following to say;
NVIDIA is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing. Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game.
NVIDIA took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed.
Nvidia's full list, which is compiled here on Reddit, includes games from major publishers like Sony, Microsoft, Valve, EA, Capcom and Take Two. The list includes Titanfall 3, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Crysis 4, GTA Remasters, Demon Souls, Gears 6, Halo 5: Guardians, Half-Life 2 Remastered, and many more unannounced games.
The list also included so-called "RTX Remaster" titles. These titles included "Bioshock TRX remaster" (RTX misspelt?), Batman, Arkham Knight RTX Remaster, and Mirror's Edge RTX Remaster. These games appear to be remastered versions of AAA gaming classics with Nvidia's RTX feature set enabled. The question here is this, why would Nvidia list these RTX remasters on Geforce Now? Is Nvidia trying to convince developers to create "RTX remaster" titles for their RTX series graphics cards?
While Nvidia had called this list of games "speculative", many are undoubtedly many titles on their list that will eventually arrive on PC. A Remake of Resident Evil 4 is inevitable, as is a PC release for Microsoft's future Xbox titles. Even with their quick response to this leak, the fact that the leak is real is hugely embarrassing for Nvidia.
As it stands, Nvidia's leaked list of PC games should not be considered as being "real". While it could be theorised that Nvidia is calling their list speculative to save face, it is more likely that Nvidia is being honest with its statement. A lot of Nvidia's game list includes numbered sequels of existing games, remasters of popular games and already rumoured games from major publishers, so there is little reason not to believe what Nvidia says on the matter. That said, Nvidia's "RTX Remaster" titles are more suspicious. Why would Nvidia list them if they weren't, at a minimum, attempting to make them happen? An RTX remaster would require Nvidia's collaboration to create, which would explain how they could appear on Nvidia's leaked game list.
