Rumours usually start floating around in the run up to E3 and this year isn’t any different. That’s not a bad thing, though, especially when the information comes from a reliable source.
Well known industry insider ‘Shinobi’ has offered up some details on Guerrilla Games’ new PS4 project as well as Sony Bend’s upcoming horror title.
According to Shinobi, Guerrilla’s new title which is rumoured to be named Horizon is still in development and that some aspects of the game were being prototyped at the beginning of this year.
“To update on that a little further, it’s almost assuredly a 2016 title at this point. From what I hear, some things were still being prototyped as recently as the beginning of this year.”
It’s rumoured that Horizon will be a sprawling open-world epic RPG that’ll feature dinosaurs of the mechanical variety. Yeah, it sounds mental, but it actually looks pretty cool, at least according to these leaked images.
Another big name within the Sony family of studios is Sony Bend, the same folks that brought us Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Rumours have been going around for a while that Sony Bend’s new game for the PS4 would be a survival-horror game, something that sounds quite promising, actually.
However, Shinobi points out that it shouldn’t be compared to games such as The Evil Within or Resident Evil.
“I wouldn’t say to think of it as The Evil Within’ish or RE’ish “survival horror” however.”
He does however, claim that it’s more along the lines of Naughty Dog’s seminal post-apocalyptic adventure The Last of Us. Answering a fellow NeoGaf posters’ question as to whether it’s more like ZombieU, Bloodborne or The Last of Us, Shinobi said:
“As far as I’m aware, more…TLOU’ish.”
Oooh, how very bloody ominous. Possibly a spin-off game for The Last of Us? We can dream.
[Update] The above comment has been taken out of context by some and is seen as us twisting the words of the great and powerful Shinobi. This isn’t the case, it was nothing more than wishful thinking, something that we don’t seriously think will happen, hence the ‘we can dream.’
Still, some good did come out of it as Shinobi looked to clear any confusion by stating that “I wasn’t saying the style of the game is like TLOU, meant the enemies more than anything else.”
Still, this doesn’t mean we’ll actually see either game at this year’s E3, though there’s a slim chance…
