With a new Matrix movie coming out relatively soon, it’s not the biggest surprise in the world to see it have some form of tie-ins with other media, in particular video games. The latter seems pretty much confirmed by now, as it appears that something called The Matrix Awakens was datamined and leaked from the PSN backend, with the tagline of it being an “Unreal Engine 5 Experience.”

The leak was posted over on Reddit, where a user datamined what appears to be a poster for something called The Matrix Awakens. Check it out below:
According to the Reddit user, there are no other details for this ‘experience,’ other than it’s confirmed only on PS5. He also shared the app id from the backend:
TitleId: PPSA05753_00 ConceptId: 10004087
As is the case with everything regarding leaks and datamines, take everything with a grain of salt until officially confirmed.
To add to this, we did verify that this ID does exist with PlayStation Game Sizes, a popular Twitter account that keeps track of PlayStation games’ sizes through via backend method. They stated that it was indeed real, though had no information on the size or anything else as they Tweeted.

At the moment, it’s a bit hard to speculate what kind of game will The Matrix Awakens be, if it even is a full game at all. The tagline “An Unreal Engine 5 Experience” could point to it being like a short media tie-in that utilizes the game engine. Whatever it is, here’s hoping we get more information on it as The Matrix Resurrections releases later this December.
