A backend feature for Discord thought to have accidentally leaked a new Monster Hunter title has been debunked as fake.
Monster Hunter fans were originally baffled when a supposed game leak appeared to originate from Discord, bringing with it plenty of excitement to players.
According to a now-deleted tweet, the Twitter user discovered a placeholder event for ‘Monster Hunter Paradise’ while tinkering with Discord’s developer mode. However, this leak has now been debunked.
New Monster Hunter game leak debunked
According to Twitter user neonaga99, “an official discord partner” confirmed the leak and the circumstances to find the placeholder event are “easily reproducible.”
Neonaga99 discovered the placeholder event through Discord’s developer mode, which allows players to adjust how bots work, copy server IDs, and much more.
This placeholder event invited users to redeem a code to gain access to Monster Hunter Paradise, though this has proven not to be the case.

“The Monster Hunter fan on the Discord dev team got busted for making up a MH name as a placeholder so they had to change it,” said Kogath — a Monster Hunter community influencer. “Seriously though, I dunno why so many people fell for thinking Discord of all places would have such advanced knowledge.”
This news will likely come as a disappointment to many fans, particularly those who were looking forward to another World sequel. For now, though, we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement from Capcom themselves.
