Dreams Release Date Seemingly Leaked By UK Retailer
A UK retailer posted a release date for upcoming Media Molecule game, Dreams, in a tweet that has since been deleted.According to the now removed tweet, posted by Shopto, Dreams will release on February 14, 2020. Shopto quickly deleted the tweet, but before it disappeared it was picked up by Twitter account @the_marmolade and subsequently signal boosted by notable games account @Nibellion.Without official word from Sony it’s impossible to say if this is indeed the release date for Dreams, or if Shopto simply made a mistake with its tweet. Retailers often have knowledge of upcoming release dates, but equally often use placeholder dates in their systems for games without official dates. This could be a result of either situation.Dreams is Media Molecule’s current project, and has been playable in early access since April. It allows players to create many different objects, worlds, and elements, which can be brought together as films or playable games. These creations can then be shared with other users. So far we’ve seen incredible recreations of Final Fantasy 7 and Nintendo classics.Dreams is a fascinating project that demonstrates the games medium is expanding beyond its previously established boundaries and therefore making old genre labels redundant.
