With a month before the big E3 video game show, some potential announcements could have been hurt by a retail leak. A number of well-known video game sequels, some of which were previously unannounced, appeared on Walmart's Canadian website Wednesday morning and were made public by a Twitter user .
At the time of writing The entries are still visible on the website, but can be removed at any time. The retail side of each game is accompanied by a black placeholder image instead of the actual box art.

Some of the titles, such as "The Last of Us 2" and "Final Fantasy 7 Remake," have already been announced and could have big presences at the upcoming E3 fair. Big video game companies will meet in Los Angeles in June to announce their latest biggest upcoming releases.
In the weeks leading up to the show, every year there are a few surprises coming through the cracks. Some of the previously unknown games on the Canadian Walmart website are:
"Just Cause 4"
"Rage 2"  19659021] GettyImages-696054590 "title =" "/>
Most of them are not surprising. "Borderlands 2" used to be a popular cooperative shooter game, but it came out almost six years ago, with developers pointing out that someday a new "Borderlands" will be released Way ahead, and 2018 could be the year.
A new one s game in the long-running Splinter Cell series also makes sense. The legendary hero of the series, Sam Fisher, recently appeared in "Ghost Recon Wildlands", which seemed like a fuss for a possible return at that time. His last game, "Splinter Cell Blacklist", started five years ago.
"Destiny Comet" is probably the codename for an expansion pack for "Destiny 2," which is scheduled for 2018, Polygon noted. Like "Splinter Cell," this is probably a temporary name before an official title is announced.
"Just Cause 4" would in all likelihood be another open-world action game that blows things up and flies wingsuits like "Just Cause 3". The previous game went well when it came out in 2015, so a sequel is not shocking.
After all, "Rage 2" would be the only big surprise on this list. The first "rage" was unevenly received in 2011. Seven years later, there seemed to be no sequel, but publisher Bethesda has relied on the revival of old franchises such as "DOOM" and "Prey." Of course, some of these bugs could be on Walmart's side and should be taken with salt grains.
You might be wondering if it could be a clever trick to fool people before the E3.
