Developer Counterplay Games said in a tweet that the gameplay video making the rounds is actually old footage of the game captured on PC and meant for an internal presentation. The studio said it’s psyched that people are excited about the dated footage, and the studio is eager to show fans what the game looks like in its newer state at some point in the future.
Borderlands studio Gearbox is publishing Godfall. Its CEO, Randy Pitchford, released a statement as well that echoes what Counterplay said. You can find both statements below.
Hey everyone! We can confirm that the circulating trailer is year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation. We are energized by your excitement and look forward to showing you just how far this game has come. Stay tuned for a more detailed look soon! ⚔️

Wow! I can confirm that the Godfall “trailer” is actually year-old PC footage used as part of an internal presentation at Counterplay. I’m pumped by the reactions and I cannot wait for you see how far the game has come and how awesome this game looks and plays on Playstation 5! pic.twitter.com/m9CbXUvZwP

Godfall, a fantasy action-RPG, is scheduled to launch in Holiday 2020 for PlayStation 5 and PC.
We may see more of Godfall in an official capacity when Sony officially debuts the PlayStation 5, which could happen sometime soon. We know for certain where it won’t happen, though– Sony has announced it will be skipping E3 2020, in an arguably smart and savvy move.
