Checking For Official Comment
Whenever we cover a rumor or potential leak or unconfirmed announcement from sources like social media, credit, YouTube channels, etc. we reach out to the said studio or person to confirm the news. If we don’t get an answer from the said studio or person, then our team will actively work on providing the most accurate info possible as well as a note at the bottom of the post, that no official statement on the said topic is made by the official entities.
