Update: Ubisoft has released a statement aimed at a YouTuber who broke restrictions on an alter-ego’s Twitter account before being caught. Dan Allen Gaming went undercover on social media as TheRealInsider, leaking sensitive information he kept secret as part of his YouTube channel. Much of the information in it was restricted, and not for public consumption until a date pre-agreed with the publisher.

Some of this information includes the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which was to be revealed during one Ubisoft Forward Live broadcast. In a statement, the spokesperson of the French publisher said that it “takes these matters seriously”.

If it is indeed true that Dan Allen Gaming signed an NDA, which is a legally binding agreement that prevents the details from being revealed before a pre-arranged time, we doubt he’ll find out ASAP. A handful of lawyers may need to be hired.

An account that recently emerged by the name of TheRealInsider has amassed a huge following after successfully leaking Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the latest game in Ubisoft’s stealth sandbox series. The French publisher was forced to come out and confirm the title earlier than planned Ubisoft Forward showcase, promising that more details will be revealed during the livestream. However, it turns out that the so-called “insider” was just a YouTuber breaking the ban.

Dan Allen Gaming, an Australian account with nearly 200k subscribers, was invited to preview the latest games from Ubisoft. However, instead of respecting the ban like his peers, he decided to leak the information on his alter-ego TheRealInsider’s account. she was exposed After forgetting to change the Twitter handle before replying to a follower, and things slowly unraveled from there. After initially refusing the job, Additional evidence emerged.

The reality is that many of these rumor mongers are chasing the dopamine drip of social media fame.
