We warned you that that "leaked" MediEvil footage was probably fake, but now its creator has come out and confirmed as much. We'd been speculating internally that the videos looked like they'd been built using Unreal Engine 4, and the maker has since stated that that's the case; it was a bit of a hobby project, then.

Writing on Twitter, the person responsible for releasing the videos said that he didn't intend to "troll", and also suggested that the renewed enthusiasm in the series could encourage Sony to create a real sequel. We suppose that we'll begrudgingly go back to providing bi-annual updates on this dead and buried brand.
