It’s no surprise Sony is focusing a lot of their energy on the inevitable release of the Playstation 5.
But with that still being a while off being completed, it’s nice to know the tech company could have a surprise up their sleeves before then.
A shock new report suggests a brand spanking new PlayStation 4 exclusive is in the works.
It was industry insider/former IGN/Kinda Funny editor Colin Moriarty (via Gamingbolt) who revealed Sony are due to announce another “substantial PS4 exclusive”.
He told a Twitter follower:
“They’ve done such a nice job cultivating second party relationships (there’s a fairly substantial PS4 exclusive yet to be announced from a second party) that it’s unclear if they feel they need to.
“All we know is expansion hasn’t been party of their strategy. Maybe that’ll change.”
“They’ve done such a nice job cultivating second party relationships (there’s a fairly substantial PS4 exclusive yet to be announced from a second party) that it’s unclear if they feel they need to”
We still don’t know specifically what game it is he is speaking of – but the fact it is being developed at a second studio narrows the list down.
Gamingbolt seems to think the most likely studio will be Supermassive Games.
If this is true we could be in for a treat, as they are responsible for games such as Until Dawn and The Inpatient.
Supermassive Games have previously said they have several unannounced PS exclusives in development.
Until Dawn was incredibly popular on PS4, so a sequel might be likely, as it would definitely be “fairly substantial”.
Meanwhile, another PS4 exclusive has been mentioned this week – and we have more concrete information about that one.
SEGA confirmed they are working on a new Yakuza game for PS4.
There aren’t many details to be found about the game yet – there isn’t even an official title or release date.
But we do know it will star Ichiban Kasuga, who Yakuza fans will recognise as the protagonist of the previously announced Shin Ryu ga Gotoku.
SEGA are also planning open auditions for his partner.
So we don’t know exactly when this game will launch, as the next title in the series will be a remaster of Yakuza 5 for PS4.
This game will come to Japan in June, but no North American or European release date has been announced yet.
As the name of the latest game is still unconfirmed, it has prompted speculation it could be a spinoff of the main series, instead of Yakuza 7.
Meanwhile, PS5 is tipped for a 2020 release, so Sony would have to announce this mystery game relatively soon.
