Walmart Canada Goes Insane, Posting a Ton of Strange Placeholder Game Listings

In the latest episode of “what in the world is going on with you, Walmart?” we’ve got a doozy of a story for you. Today, Walmart Canada took to its official storefront and added a ton of games that have either not been announced yet with placeholder preorder links, or titles that haven’t even come to light yet, like a new addition to the Gears of War series or Rage 2. Obviously, these listings aren’t any indication of real titles coming to the store, and it seems pretty clear that Walmart Canada has had a momentary lapse of reason.

But to play devil’s advocate, here’s the full list of games the retailer has added to its upcoming preorder pages:

  • Just Cause 4
  • Splinter Cell
  • Dragon Quest 2 (PS4/XBO)
  • LEGO DC Villans
  • Borderlands 3
  • Rage 2
  • Gears of War 5
  • Forza Horizons 5
  • Assassin’s Creed

Yes, the list reads “Forza Horizons 5,” which makes little sense both because the series is “Horizon” (singular) and there hasn’t even been a Forza Horizon 4. Splinter Cell makes a little more sense, especially since we just saw Sam Fisher crash the party in Ghost Recon Wildlands, but a “Dragon Quest 2” is completely baffling. Now, on the off chance any of this actually happened, it sure would be cool, but it’s more than likely just a bunch of garbled junk Walmart Canada decided to upload to its official page for some reason. With E3 2018 right around the corner, we’ll very quickly find out what’s real and what isn’t, and what we should pay attention to or shouldn’t. Don’t take any of this as truth, however. We’ll let you know when and if it’s appropriate to get excited.
