The 32nd page of an exhaustive PDF document called “Operation Red Tape” is christened with the headline, “Discussing throwing ‘leads’ about Jeanue to an IGN journalist.” It was uploaded by the team behind the website SaveTitanfall.com on August 6 as the definitive conclusion on one of the strangest stories in video games.
