Apparently the hacker attack on Bandai Namco revealed the publisher’s plans for next fiscal year, which include an Elden Ring expansion and several new games.
An expansion of Elden Ring entitled Barbarians of the Badlands and several new games seem to have been revealed by the hacker attack conducted against the Bandai Namco servers , or at least that’s what is emerging on social networks waiting for confirmation or denial.
As reported a few hours ago, the hacker group BlackCat seems to have inflicted an attack on Bandai Namco in order to steal confidential information and then ask for a ransom from the Japanese publisher, who may have refused to accept these conditions: hence the inevitable leak.
The brochure that we see in the photo below would seem to be just one of the documents stolen during the violation, but as already mentioned for the moment it is not clear if these materials are legitimate or if it is a fake elaborate packaged to ride the wave of the moment.
Armored Core appears on the material – it is supposedly a secret title from From Software, which, according to the latest information from the studio, is on the home straight. The Japanese are apparently not idle as the addition to the Elden Ring is expected to be released in the third quarter.
1st quarter of the financial year (April-June 2023)
- Armored Core
- Dragon Ball the Breakers
II quarter (July-September)
- Little Nightmares 3
- Dragon Ball FigherZ Super
- Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth 2
III quarter (October-December)
- Elden Ring Barbarians of the Badlands
- Tales of Ascenion
- Tekken 8
4th quarter (January-March)
- Code Vein 2
- One Punch Man Fighters Association
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse 3
It should be noted, however, that it may be a simple fake, which is only to stimulate the fans, but there are at least 3-4 certainty here – taking into account the great results of Tekken, Little Nightmares or the Elden Ring, we can expect more productions related to these IPs.
