The writer of Dead Space has teased a new game reveal at tomorrow’s PS5 event.
He wrote on Twitter in a now-deleted tweet: “As some of you know, I’ve been working on a big video game for almost two years now. In totally unrelated news, you should all watch the PS5 launch event on Thursday.”
In a series of deleted follow-up tweets, Johnston revealed that the game’s character is someone “having a really bad time” before quote retweeting a reply asking whether the game will be horror and saying: “Weird how everyone automatically assumes it’ll be a horror game.”
The tweets ave sparked speculation that the new game may be a remake of Dead Space. However, other users disregarded the idea and believe the new project will instead be similar to the game.
Regardless of what the game is, we don’t have to wait long before we find out as Sony’s PS5 event is scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday, June 11th) at 9 PM BST. We can expect an announcement for Johnston’s new game and rumours suggest we may also see confirmation of a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn as well as the Resident Evil 8 and Silent Hill rumoured games.
PS5 Amazon Leak
The news comes as a placeholder for the PS5 console was listed on Amazon UK for £599.99. According to reports, one user was able to purchase the console before it was removed. The model purchased included a 2TB hard drive which many other sites have pointed out that doesn’t line up with the PS5’s official specs which comes with an 825GB SSD.
Users were also shocked by the £600 price tag, making the PS5 Sony’s most expensive console so far. Many industry insiders and fans believe the console will be priced at the cheaper price of around £500.
Around the same time, several placeholder listings for PS5 games priced at around £69.99 also appeared on the store from developers Bethesda, Namco Bandai, Konami, and two Take2 (2K) and two Koch games.
The listings have sparked speculation that some of the mentioned game developers may be featured in Sony’s PS5 game showcase tomorrow, although this should be taken with a grain of salt.
Sony has remained relatively quiet regarding its PlayStation 5 console, partially due to the on-going worldwide events. We already know the console’s official specs and we know that it will support backwards compatibility for a range of PS4 games.
We’ve seen the console’s DualSense controller. This week, however, we’ll be given a look at the games and events to follow will provide more reveals and information on the eagerly awaited console.
