Rumor: Syphon Filter 4 Set For Winter 2012 Launch?
The naysayers called it the poor man's Metal Gear Solid but in truth, Syphon Filter was once a great, entertaining series.
Many fans have been waiting for an installment on the PlayStation 3, too, so if this information is accurate, there will be quite a few happy gamers out there. Are we ready for Syphon Filter 4?
According to SilleGamer citing the August 2011 edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine Italy, we will indeed receive the fourth entry exclusively on the PlayStation 3 in Winter 2012. This comes after evidence of a new title popped up on the official US PlayStation website; evidence that included details and an early logo, and promptly disappeared. Supposedly, Syphon Filter 4 is a sequel to Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow for the PSP and it's in development at SCE London Studio. Oh, and we're looking at what should be a "visually advanced engine." Yeah, well, we can always use that.
Hopefully, Sony will make the announcement some time soon. Of course, it's still just a rumor but we fully expect an unveiling. Sometimes, Syphon Filter gets a bad rap and while there were a few lackluster installments, the first titles were some of the best available on the original PlayStation. Let's not forget that.
