Walmart Says A ‘Glitch’ Caused Possible E3-Spoiling Leak

You probably heard yesterday that a number of big video game titles went up on Walmart Canada’s website yesterday sparking a frenzy amongst gamers. The titles were seemingly for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and these included a new entry in the Splinter Cell franchise and also Borderlands 3 amongst others. Presumably these titles were meant to be announced at E3 next month and Walmart Canada has said today that the listing was caused by a “glitch.” Here’s their statement to Vice:

“Walmart experienced a technical glitch that allowed certain items to be posted to our website for a short period of time,” Anika Malik, director of corporate affairs for Walmart Canada, told Motherboard in an email. “The items posted were speculative in nature and only game publishers can confirm the announcement of a release. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. Like the gaming community, Walmart looks forward with anticipation to those announcements.”




  1. You may want to remove the game title spoilers from the article. I don’t personally care for the games mentioned, but other people may be sensitive to e3 spoilers.
