    A leak seems to have come out from a Youtuber named Doctre81 with a LinkedIn slip. He's has been known for doing some detective work, discovering these types of leaks which have been accurate in the past.

    Edit: The Ace Combat 7 piece in the LinkedIn picture is specifically talking about the VR section, which is true. It is confirmed exclusive to PS4/PSVR

    MOD EDIT: As this thread progresses, please take care not to derail into conversations surrounding the ethics of system exclusivity or games available on other platforms. Please keep your contributions related to the rumor in the OP and not about other exclusive releases on other consoles and do not use this thread as a place to criticize third-party developers for their exclusive support, financed or otherwise.

    Do we have any way of proving this LinkedIn profile is legit?
    Couldn't someone fake this pretty easily?

    Hoping it's real, but you gotta keep it skeptical.

    I thought for sure it was ID. Does namco have enough experience in these kind of games?

    Please god let this be true. I have missed ridge racer so much. I just picked up ridge racer 6 for Xbox again recently.

    Well, the fact that Bamco was developing MP4 was widely known

    But Ace Combat 7 isn't exclusive to PS4 and PSVR.

    You mean like they did with Retro?
  29. Porygon

    Porygon Member

    Didn't that exactly happen with Retro Studio and Metroid Prime?
  30. Mr. Pointy

    Mr. Pointy Member

    Aren't they a technical assistance studio?

    I was just about to say this, unless they're only working on the VR version, but the wording is weird

    It was a fact?

    isn't it on xbox?
  34. SieteBlanco

    Would you actually write the title you're working on is "exclusive to X platform" in your LinkedIn profile?

    I mean I'd love a new Ridge Racer, but this seems so.. random.

    I was listening to the Ridge Racers soundtrack the other day.

    I'd imbibe massive donkey cock for another soundtrack this good.

    Nothing wrong with them having not done anything. I was asking because I don't know, but looking at their site it does look like they're new?

    Mr. Pointy Member

    Nintendo have a Digipen studio in Singapore, right?

    Just watched a youtube video of Ridge Racer 7 on youtube since I don't about it

    Why would you list what systems a game is exclusive to?

    He's gotten things accurate in the past, like Panic Button doing the Wolfenstein 2 port for Switch before it was confirmed through LinkedIn

    Wasn't the Bandai-Namco MP4 been rumored before? I feel like I remember someone throwing that around this forum before.
  43. Shroki

    Shroki Member

    No, not a fact. Just widely speculated.

    Nintendo seems to have that kind of relationship with them.

    What? Ridge Race? Bandai Singapore? This is pretty nuts.
  45. Atheerios

    Atheerios Member

    Well, Nintendo said a talented new team was making the game.

    This Bamco/MP4 thing keeps coming up. Hard to dismiss at this point. But it sure is an odd choice.
  47. MrCafecito

    MrCafecito Member

    Wait I thought this was a joke thread but it's still open?

    rawhide Member

    I know nothing about Bandai Namco Singapore but it's entirely possible they're an external collaborator/asset farm and not the primary developer.

    since no one has asked the obvious:

    is Ace Combat 7 a good game?
