[Update] Ubisoft has confirmed Hyper Scape’s existence and has stated the full reveal will be held on July 2, 2020.
The battle royale video game genre is immensely popular right now. There are several video game IPs that continue to find an audience eager to test their skills against others online. However, because this game genre is so popular, you can also find plenty of viewers online watching their favorite Twitch streamer playing these titles as well. A new leak has emerged online that suggests Ubisoft is interested in diving into this game genre as well with the launch of Hyper Scape a title that will be coming out into the market that’s intended for streamers.
This leak comes from a reputable video game insider, Rod Breslau, who has taken to Twitter and announced Hyper Scape, a game that is supposedly being announced later today. Set in the future, this battle royale seems to be an FPS but what will set this game apart is the fact that there is plenty of integration to Twitch. Apparently, the commands that Twitch viewers in chat could pull off will allow some significant changes to the gameplay.
We’re not sure just what exactly the Twitch chat can pull off, but if it can directly impact the game, it would seem that this would be a popular interactive title for streamers. Still, this is all unconfirmed at the moment as Ubisoft has yet to announced Hyper Scape. If the statements from Rod Breslau prove to be true then you should be able to see this game hit a closed beta this coming week followed by an open beta and a launch on July 12, 2020.
Furthermore, it seems that this game will be available first on the PC platform, but a console edition is planned later this year. There’s also said to be cross-play support enabled which means whatever platform you decided to play this game on, you should be able to connect with your friends relatively easily. For now, all we can do is wait and see if this game gets announced today and what information proves to be accurate.
