Ubisoft Sets Up Teaser Website for What Is Reportedly a New Battle Royale, Hyper Scape
It’s becoming an E3 tradition for Ubisoft games to be leaked prior to announcement. And although E3 isn’t happening this year, that doesn’t mean all of Ubisoft’s upcoming games are a secret. The latest game to be leaked is Hyper Scape, reportedly a first-person shooter battle royale with what seems like a sci-fi setting, according to Rod “Slasher” Breslau.
There’s a lot we don’t know about Hyper Scape yet, but an official teaser website for it has gone live and the game is set to be revealed officially on Thursday, July 2.
