SOCOM 4, Syphon Filter 5 Rumor Gets Shot Down

Bah. If you were getting your hopes up concerning Syphon Filter 5 and SOCOM 4, we're about to put a damper on your day.

Both games were rumored to be in development, primarily due to the fact that both titles appeared on the credits page of digital design company, PCB Productions. In fact, we just recently noticed the existence of SOCOM 4 amongst the many credits at PCB, which is why we were all excited. After all, PCB has been very active in the past, providing content for titles in the Call of Duty series, and also contributing to the likes of both Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighters and Bioshock. However, as reported by CVG, a few titles on that aforementioned credit page are improperly listed. A PCB rep said:

"I apologize for the confusion. There appears to be some errors on our credits. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror was recorded a few years back with Image Metrics, and we recorded Red Steel for the Wii.  We recently worked on Socom FTB 3 for the PSP."

Therefore, in case you can't read between the lines, "Syphon Filter 5" was really referring to Dark Mirror and "SOCOM 4" translates to SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3. We would like to add that more evidence for a fifth Syphon Filter had been located recently, but we're not about to add more fire to the rumor, simply because nothing is official. As of right now, the information taken from PCB wasn't accurate; the titles were just referring to different games in the respective franchises.

*puts fingers in ears* I don't wanna hear anymore, what that guy said is just a coverup, like Roswell and stuff.

I'm not much of a SOCOM fan, but Siphon Filter 5 would be nice.

SOCOM was a huge franchise on the PS2. Anyone who thinks that one isn't in the works for the PS3 doesn't know much about the video game industry. They're just not ready to announce it.....and it's certainly not PCB Productions' job to do so.

please don't mention the avro arrow around me cause it really pisses me off, and I really don't need to go on anymore rants anytime soon... now as for the article... I don't know if its a cover up or not, he very well could be telling the truth, but I do reamin skeptical. Both game series are big sellers so I don't see why they wouldn't have any in the works, even if they are just ideas on paper, that is still classed as "in the works" is it not?

I remember playing Syphon Filter 1 & 2 on the PSX, it was a lot of fun using the tasers and those "ungodly" sniper head shots from your Silenced pistol.
