Probably remakes by a company like Bluepoint? (I'm aware they're working on SotC) They don't have any first party studios free to work on a Syphon Filter right now.

Or they're simply renewing the trademark.

Sanzaru? Idk but they have a lot of second party affiliates in Europe. What about London? Itís one of Sonyís largest studios and isnít doing much. Those party games arenít time consuming.

I had a high opinion of the first two and MGSV had me imagining open-world versions of Moscow and D.C.

Never returned after it moved to PS2. Franchise was on hiatus for awhile after 989 disbanded.

Other than tasing dude and the butt shift run, I'm trying to think what does Syphon Filter mean anymore?

Fucking weirdest thing, I was just thinking about this franchise for the first time in forever. Was surprised to see there hadn't been a game in a decade.

why didn't Syphon Filter have the same impact as Metal Gear Solid it came out a year later, it was a stealth game and it had an immersive plot at the time?

Syphon Filter is similar to MGS, no? Kojima is making a game for Sony ... Mmmmm. Perhaps a consultants role?

It had enough impact for Kojima to reference it in snake eater!

Sanzaru might be a good choice. Not too sure about Sony London though. They haven't made a "real" game in forever.

I always liked the series, I'd definitely buy another one. It has an interesting story, I'd be interested to see what they do with it.

Surely it can't be a continuation after what happened in Logan's Shadow on PSP.


Edit: Hopes too high, not just a PS2 classic please Sony.

why is 'syphon filter' a stupid name?

anyways, YES!
i've always felt this is one of the most under appreciated Sony IP's ever.
i loved the first 3 on psx (my fav was #2). if a new game is indeed being made, i hope Sony give it to a great team who will do gabe logan justice.

keeping an eye on this. :)

All the franchise have been done by Eidetic (Sony Bend or Bend Studio nowdays) and it is a Sony's first-party. They are working in Days Gone but maybe some of the members are working in other things. Uncharted: Golden Abyss was started by 9 employees only.

The original Syphon Filter game engine and script was made by Sony, tho, Eidetic only did the rest. They were hired after Bubsy 3D (yeah).

Don't agree at all, they play pretty decent for 20 year old series.

Possibly just re-releases.

If I remember correctly you were able to blast people through glass etc. with the shotgun? As in, they flew back a little?

Loved this game back in the day but if it comes back in some butchered Tomb Raider style iteration, nope.

Every gun went through normal glass, u could taser normal glass also and it would shatter, lights too

Shotgun yea blew people back not sure if u had to be up close or just any kill at any distance that ended with a shotgun

Yeah. Its hard to do a remaster of those games that looks good (might as well be a Full remake like crash) so thats the best possibility in my opinion.

I wish they would make something like the omega strain. The game was a blast to play online, with huge levels and so many different ways to tackle the objectives, depending on how many people were on the team.

Only good memories for this amazing entry.

I really enjoyed the first two games back on the PS1 but haven't played the series since. Hope they reboot the series and do it justice because I remember the original games being a lot of fun for the time.

Maybe if itís a port of Dark Mirror or Loganís Shadow. No way theyíd do Omega Strain. Those two games would look good cleaned up with improved textures.
