As is so often the case with rumours relating to Japan Studio’s terrifying Siren series, Sony has shut the speculation down. Earlier in the week, the Romanian arm of Sony Computer Entertainment hinted that the frightening franchise could be making a comeback on the PlayStation 4, but this was merely a mix-up according to the platform holder.
The unannounced title was listed alongside upcoming next generation blockbusters such as inFAMOUS: Second Son and DriveClub, but it turns out that it was confused with Tequila Works’ upcoming ICO-esque adventure, RIME. “Siren was the working title name for RIME prior to its announcement at Gamescom 2013,” a spokesperson told IGN.
We’re a little bit disappointed, to be honest, as we can only imagine how sinister the Shibito would look on Sony’s supercharged hardware. Still, we suppose that creator Keiichirō Toyama has his work cut out with Gravity Rush 2. Would you rather return to the topsy-turvy world of Hekseville, or endure the holiday from Hell in Hanuda Village? Drift away in the comments section below.
