God of War PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Sony Santa Monica is a big, big studio, so while we’re sure that the bulk of its workforce is busy beavering away on God of War, it’s probably got a bit of manpower to spare. And according to a report on VRFocus, it may be leveraging those resources to cook up a little something new for Sony’s fledgling PlayStation VR headset.

Here’s the quote that the site has posted, supposedly from a source familiar with the developer’s internal goings on: “Santa Monica are working on something big. It’s a full-blown second wave title for [PlayStation VR]. It’ll be revealed soon and I know it’ll go well with the core PlayStation audience, but I can’t say any more than that!”

If accurate, then we reckon you can bank on seeing this at E3 2017 next month. But what could it be? Well, there was that first-person Kratos prototype that the team created in the early days of PlayStation VR, but it seems unlikely it’ll continue work on that. The way the quote is worded suggests we could potentially see the return of a much loved franchise, though.

Any guesses? There are so many iconic PlayStation brands that would work in virtual reality: Colony Wars, Jumping Flash, and Warhawk to name but a few. It’s going to be really interesting to see what kind of presence PlayStation VR has at E3 2017 – and what this so-called second wave of software looks like.
