The leak comes from SteamDB, a database that collects information on everything currently available on Steam at any given time. The page, while not outright confirming the game to be Housemarque's Returnal, does accurately describe the game using Steam's tag system.

The tags currently list it as a Sci-Fi third-person shooter Rogue-like that's atmospheric with bullet hell elements, all of which accurately describe the 2021 title.

Perhaps more damning is the localization Strings section of the SteamDB page which shows phrases like "Atropos" and "In Helios" both terms which are related to the game with Atropos being the name of the hostile alien world that protagonist Selene finds herself on and "Helios" is the name of the ship she crashed on the planet with.

This leak is the latest in a series of major PlayStation titles making their jump to PC, with titles like God of War, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Uncharted all either making the jump or is set to in the near future.
