While it’s known that Sony Bend is working on a PS4 exclusive, Sony has been keeping all details closely under wraps. The descriptions provided in many career opportunity ads have made many think that they’re working on a new Syphon Filter, and some wondered if that could be linked to the recently registered Kill Strain trademark, but according to industry insider Shinobi602 who has proven to know quite a lot on what’s going on behind the scenes at several studios, that isn’t the case.
Shinobi mentioned that while he doesn’t know what Kill Strain is about, it’s not what Sony Bend is currently working on. He also added that we should keep an open mind on it, because they have “something great” in store.
Assuming that Shinobi’s information is correct, it’ll be very interesting to see what they’re working on, possibly at E3. While Syphon Filter would be an obvious choice for the studio considering its pedigree, there’s really no way to tell at the moment.
Of course, though, since Sony didn’t make any official announcement, we should still consider this just a rumor until that happens.
Update: Shinobi clarified after the article was posted that he meant that Sony Bend isn’t working on Kill Strain. So it’s still possible that they’re working on a new Syphon Filter, but their new title is not related to the Kill Strain Trademark. The article has been amended to reflect that.
