Siren: Blood Curse

Survival horror has died out over the past five or so years. While the original Dead Space plotted a return to the trademark tension that once defined the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises, even that brand couldn’t resist the temptation to adopt a more action-oriented approach by the time that its third instalment put the PlayStation 3 (and players) into stasis. Fortunately, there’s still hope that Sony’s own under-rated Siren series could make a return.

While a slew of teasing Tweets from creator Keiichirō Toyama turned out to be unconnected to a PlayStation 4 sequel earlier in the year, a Romanian press release for the next generation console appears to have accidentally outed a new entry in the sightjacking property. The documentation reads: “Sony Computer Entertainment studios from all around the world are developing over 30 titles and among them are games like inFAMOUS: Second Son, The Order: 1886, Siren, Helldivers, Shadow of the Beast, and Everybody’s Gone to The Rapture.”

Of course, it could just be a typo – but it seems like a very specific mistake to make. Siren has never been a big seller on previous PlayStation platforms, but with a distinct lack of old-school survival horror titles currently announced for Sony’s next generation system, we could definitely see it filling a space. With Toyama-san believed to be busy working on Gravity Rush 2, though, we’re curious who could be working on the title. That’s if it actually exists in the first place, of course.
