A build of Ubisoft’s fantasy RPG was available on Stadia’s store, listed under the code-name Orpheus, revealing a game which looks influenced by both Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Cote also confirmed Ubisoft will show its next look at Gods and Monsters this summer, and that it has changed the game’s name.
“Our vision for the game formerly known as Gods and Monsters has evolved in surprising ways, which is common when developing exciting new worlds,” he said.
“This footage is from our E3 2019 demo, which was shown to select press last June and is now over one year old. Much has changed since then in terms of features, tone, art and character design, and even the name of the game.
“We are hard at work and very excited to finally show players what we have created at the end of summer.”
In a separate statement issued to Kotaku, Stadia apologised for the leak.
“Regretfully, on Thursday morning, we mistakenly made an E3 2019 demo version of Gods & Monsters from Ubisoft available on the Stadia store that was not intended for the public to play,” a Stadia spokesperson said.
“A few hundred gamers were able to play it for less than 30 minutes. We sincerely apologise to our partners at Ubisoft for this mistake.”
