A well-known industry leaker nicknamed The Real Insider has accidentally revealed his true identity. As a result, it turned out that the person publishing game leaks is youtuber Dan Allen Gaming.

It appears that Allen’s public contrition and apology did not appease Ubisoft authorities. As reported by Eurogamer, which contacted the French company on the matter, the latter is taking the situation seriously and intends to “respond accordingly.” Below you can read the full statement from Ubisoft’s spokesperson.

Some of you may be familiar with the youtube channel Dan Allen Gaming, which presents many interesting facts from the world of gaming, where you can find guides, instructions and other useful information for gamers – all in a very harmless form.

You will ask, what do these two characters have in common? Well, they turned out to be one and the same person.

The leaker’s entire facade of anonymity disappeared earlier this week, thanks to a classic social media blunder. Responding to a Twitter query to The Real Insider, Allen wrote the message from the wrong account. Admittedly, he quickly deleted the tweet, but nothing dies on the Internet. The matter was taken up by, among others, Bloomber agency reporter Jason Schreier, who compared a series of posts by this leaker with those from Dan Allen. These turned out to be very similar to each other.

So how did the youtuber’s “alter ego” – The Real Insider – come in to possesion of the information guarded by game developers? As Schreier stated, Allen was simply breaking the embargo on news he received from manufacturers by being a well-known influencer (via Kotaku).

Faced with the embarrassment, Allen quickly admitted to being The Real Insider and apologized for his behavior (you can see video footage below).
