XDefiant Won’t Be Shadow Dropped, YouTube Gaming Event Kicks Off Today

XDefiant shadow drop

While XDefiant’s release is slated for sometime this summer, there’s still no firm release date available for the game just yet. If you’re hoping for the game to be “shadow dropped” — a term used when something is released unexpectedly or by surprise, don’t since that won’t be happening.

This was confirmed by XDefiant Producer Mark Rubin over on Twitter where he mentioned that an XDefiant shadow drop won’t be happening, as they would want players to be able to pre-load the game and such.

This conversation was kickstarted as YouTube content creators will be jumping online today to compete in the YouTube Gaming “World’s Greatest” event, which kicks off today at 3pm ET/12 pm PT/3 am HKT.

If you’re interested, you’ll be able to watch it unfold here. If any relevant info seeps its way out of the event, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.

In other XDefiant news, the devs have said that they are squashing last minute bugs as part of the game’s release submission.
