Before Rage 2 was officially disclosed this afternoon, we reported how the game’s early record on Walmart Canada contributed to Bethesda responding to the flow. Many thought that for the retail listing of Rage 2 essentially outing the game’s presence, Bethesda Softworks would have potentially opted to not disclose the project before E3.
It appears that this assumption isn’t right, nevertheless, based on Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines. Following the game’s formal show, Hines took to Twitter to answer whether or not the publication could have stayed quiet about Rage 2 before E3 had the Walmart Canada list not occurred. Hines stated that the teaser trailer has been scheduled to happen now no matter that escape.
Plan was originally to start teasing on Friday, teaser trailer now, gameplay elsewhere. We just improvised and adapted because my team is awesome and we believed it’d be fun (it had been). https://t.co/JXoMKwXpKQ

It seems that the only real thing the Walmart Canada listing of Rage 2 did was progress Bethesda’s timetable by a single day. Hines also stated this leak let them have a bit more fun with the slow show of Rage 2, that was clearly viewed out of the game’so called Twitter accounts that poked fun at the retail list.
Until then, be sure to check out the show trailer if you harbor’t done yet.
