PlayStation Plus subscribers got a little excited when it was reported multiple gaming websites that February 2018 Free Games has been leaked ahead of its official announcement. The report stated that February 2018 free games line-up will include – Dark Souls II Scholar of the first sin, Far Cry 4 and That’s You. Just in case you missed out on the announcement, you guys can check out the leaked image below. Now, here comes the big news – this IMAGE has been officially confirmed to be a FAKE.
The creator of the image is Reddit user “Phoenix_Gaming1” and he has admitted that the image was created by him just as a “JOKE on Facebook”, but one of his followers went a step ahead and posted it on Reddit and from there it went viral in the few hours time.
“Hi, my name is George Awad I’m the creator of the image that’s been going around like wildfire and to prove it I’ll provide this image where I moved a few thing around. I made this as a joke on facebook and someone put this on Reddit and it spread like wildfire.”
When asked why he specifically selected Dark Souls II and Far Cry 4 for the joke? Phoenix_Gaming1 replied: Dark Souls Remastered is scheduled to launch in May, and the next Far Cry game (Far Cry 5) will release in March 2018.
“LucasBlade is 100% correct “Yeah I’m wondering about this too, maybe because Dark Souls Remastered comes out in May and Far Cry 5 in March”
And when asked – what made him come out in open and let the world know that the image leaked is FAKE and created by him? Phoenix_Gaming1 replied:
“I only told the truth because I saw someone say they were going to sell their copy of Dark Souls 2 and get it again for free in February that’s when I realized this had blown out of proportion and had gone too far.”
There you have it folks – this is why we use a disclaimer in almost all of our rumors – Take it with a grain of salt and wait for an official confirmation. We cannot trust everything on the internet.
