Killzone fans are having a helluva week, because they believe the PlayStation 5’s user interface introduction is teasing a new title. You may have noticed the Helghast front-and-centre in the system login screen, but that’s just an ancient PlayStation Network avatar, right? Should we really be reading too much into it?

Well, it’s certainly not impossible – but this PS5 user interface tease is not evidence of that in the slightest, we’re afraid.
