These fully-fledged ARGs, categorized below, are confirmed to be the "real deal". Active ARGs are frequently discussed within the Game Detectives community and yield new developments often. On Hold ARGs are temporarily inactive but believed to return, while Discontinued ARGs have been cancelled, or have otherwise gone inactive and are not expected to return. Completed ARGs been completed and officially ended.

Official

Official ARGs are usually high-profile, high-quality, and backed by a known commercial entity. Official ARGs can be extremely challenging and in-depth and sometimes attract very large audiences. While not always the case, these types of ARGs tend to involve existing media or upcoming releases thereof; for example, a game developer might include clues for an ARG inside one of their games, or might create an ARG to lead up to a release of content. They commonly include real-world situations, characters, plot-lines, and challenges which engage with the community to create unique, authentic puzzle-solving experiences.
