Accidental Early Announcement Reveals Futuristic New Game
Ubisoft's Middle Eastern Twitter account has revealed a brand-new game a little bit early. Hyper Scape is going to be the company's next upcoming title, although what this game is all about is a bit of a mystery.
"Activating Hyper Scape - Expected time to end activation: 3 days," reads a machine-translated tweet on @UbisoftME that was highlighted by gaming forum ResetEra. The forum also highlighted another tweet from Arab-language Twitch streamer FFearFFul.
The Arabic-language world hasn't been the only place to have early launches for these announcements. Another tweet from Rainbow Six Siege content creator Katja showed off some merch she received for participating in the game in some fashion... and it also leads to a website.
What Kind of Game is Hyper Scape?
At first, all we had was a handful of screenshots. We soon discovered an in-universe website at prismadimensions.com which appears to be advertising a futuristic company.
According to that website, Prisma Dimensions is a company that is somehow involved with "direct neural stimulation." Judging by the terminology on this website and the images in FFearFFul's tweet, I think it's safe to say that Hyper Scape is probably going to be some kind of cyberpunk-themed game.
Unfortunately, there are still many questions that we don't yet have the answer to. Is this going to be a first-person shooter? A tactical RPG? An MMORPG? Judging by the involvement of a content creator for Rainbow Six Siege, I would make the educated guess that this will probably be some kind of FPS.
In any case, FFearFFul and Katja's tweets both state that we'll be hearing more about Hyperscape on Thursday, July 2, 2020. For now, we'll have to sit tight until more information comes out on that date. Between this game and Cyberpunk 2077, 2020 is looking to be a good year for cyberpunk games!
