Sony Bend Not Working On New Syphon Filter, Sadly
Sony Bend has been working on a PlayStation 4 game for several years now, and lots of fans were hoping it was the triumphant return of Syphon Filter.
But you might have to drop that notion.
According to DualShockers citing a Reddit user ("athey") who claims to be a former employee of the Sony Bend studio, it's not a Syphon Filter sequel. She worked there for 8 years and knows what they're working on now but she won't spill the beans. She did say, however:
"John Garvin got burned out on Syphon Filter. He wanted to make something different. People seem to like to ignore that Gabe Logan died at the end of Logan’s Shadow. Garvin literally killed off the main character so he wouldn’t have to make any more SF games. Plus, despite all the praise, they didn’t sell. Very low sales all around."
She added that the team pitched the idea of doing a new inFamous and Uncharted for PlayStation Vita, but those projects fell through. That's too bad but we'll definitely be interested in what Sony Bend is making for PS4 and if it isn't Syphon Filter, will it be similar...?
Guess we'll have to wait and see.
