The speculation around Abandoned still continues and no one really knows what’s the real story behind this game.

Recently, we talked about a Russian insider who believes that the game is a front for a new Metal Gear Solid project from Konami without Kojima’s involvement.

Abandoned Leaked Images Are Real

Recently, some images leaked from Abandoned that are said to be taken from Kahraman’s PSN account.

The screenshots showcase an in-game outdoor environment, but due to the dark lighting, there is not much to be discovered in the images.

That being said, some fans managed to see more from the screenshots by increasing the brightness of the image. As shown below, there’s a mushroom-like thing on the background behind the wall, when you increase the brightness.

Reacting to the Abandoned leaked images, Hasan Kahraman confirmed that images are real. He revealed that the images belong to a 2019 build of the game and are actually captured on PS4 Pro.

He explained that they decided to shift the development on PS5 as the last-gen console of Sony was not capable of delivering a full experience from Abandoned.

Abandoned is supposed to launch exclusively on PS5 on an unknown date. The game is a survival horror experience with quite a realistic environment design. You can download the game’s pre-load app now through the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 5.
