The man behind some of gaming’s most notorious rumors outs himself

Women gossiping at salon

Excited about Fallout 4? Well, cool it, because that’s not necessarily a real thing. You’re forgiven if you thought it was, and not just because we love you: rumors swirled about the supposed game for months. While at least one of them was true — and yes, Fallout 4 is assuredly a possibility — some of the most widely reported rumors were total bullshit. And not just any ol’ poop, but carefully crafted lies from a single man — that’s according to a profile piece by Kotaku’s Jason Schreier. The alleged fake leaker also promulgated false rumors of Watch Dogs and Call of Duty, both of which were widely reported among gaming sites. It’s a fascinating tale, and we suggest heading over to Kotaku for the full piece.
