Rage 2 has become the latest game apparently revealed by a retailer listing, after it briefly appeared on Walmart Canada’s website.
Bethesda Softworks, publisher of id Software’s original 2011 first-person shooter Rage (which didn’t exactly set the world alight at the time) has reacted amusingly on Twitter, posting a screenshot of the Rage 2 listing and picking apart various obviously incorrect elements of it. And Bethesda’s VP of marketing Pete Hines followed that up by retweeting it, with the added text: “This is why we can’t have nice things.”
While Bethesda’s reaction doesn’t exactly amount to a confirmation that Rage 2 is in the works, it isn’t a flat denial, either. If Rage 2 is indeed in development, we will surely hear about that at this year’s E3 Show, taking place between 12 and 14 June in Los Angeles. As ever, we’ll keep you abreast of new developments.
