Bill Gates created a video game called Omicron in 1999.
According to social media users, Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, created a video game called Omicron in 1999. According to users, the game is about a demon who disguises himself as a human in order to harvest human souls, establishing a link between Bill Gates and the COVID-19 Omicron variant.
There is no video game called Omicron, according to Misbar's investigation. In 1999, a game called Omikron: The Nomad Soul was released, with Omikron serving as a made-up location, while the European title was The Nomad Soul. Quantic Dream SA, a French video game developer and publisher based in Paris that was founded in 1997, created this video game. Among the games they've created are Fahrenheit, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human.
Although Omikron: The Nomad Soul can be played on Microsoft computers, it was not created by Microsoft or Bill Gates. It also has nothing to do with COVID-19. The video game is an action/adventure genre in which you solve mysteries, solve puzzles, fight and shoot your opponent. It is set in a cyberpunk and science fiction world.
According to the findings, the Misbar team confirms that the claim is false, and that neither Bill Gates nor the actual game Omikron: The Nomad Soul is related to Omicron, the COVID-19 variant.
