Xbox Era’s Nick “Shpeshal_Nick” Baker has shared a couple of new rumors that should make FromSoftware fans and older PlayStation gamers very happy.

According to Baker, From Software is working on a new Souls-like game that will presumably draw inspiration from Dark Souls and the rest of the Souls series. This game will be exclusive to PlayStation 5, which means that it should be a true next-gen title that better stresses the hardware of Sony’s latest console.

FromSoftware’s rumored Souls title is not a sequel to Bloodborne, however, so fans of that franchise will have to keep waiting.

Additionally, Baker claims that a new installment of Studio Liverpool’s classic futuristic anti-gravity racing franchise, WipEout, is in development. The new Wipeout title will reportedly be a PlayStation 5 title that supports VR, which suggests that it could be one of the first titles to flaunt the capabilities of Sony’s upcoming PS VR 2 headset.

The WipEout series is hugely memorable for its ship designs and graphics, which were groundbreaking at the time, as well as its soundtracks that comprised hits such as The Chemical Brothers’ Loops of Fury (Wipeout XL).

Clever Beans, EPOS Game Studios, and XDev’s WipEout Omega Collection, a remaster of WipEout HD and WipEout 2048, is the most recent installment in the WipEout series.

    I always like a good wipeout game

    Indeed. One of my favorite game series. I wasn’t happy when Sony shut down Studio Liverpool/Psygnosis before console 8th-gen really started. 9th-gen needs a proper [I]Wipeout[/I] game, since 8th-gen only got a repackage of [I]Wipeout HD[/I] and [I]Wipeout 2048[/I] as the [I]Omega Collection[/I]. I would also be down for a collection that packages the entire history of [I]Wipeout[/I] games together, with maybe some light remastering of earlier ones.

    So who the f*ck is developing this new [I]Wipeout[/I]? Hopefully veteran devs that know the series well.

    Not that this is related, but talking about [I]Wipeout[/I] reminds me of my constant complaint that [I]F-Zero[/I]’s last game was in f*cking 2003.

    EDIT: I forgot to write that I would like this new 9th-gen [I]Wipeout[/I] game, and that collection I proposed, to be released on PC as well, thank you very much.

  2. Next-gen Wipeout would be cool to see; Seems like it’d be a good title to launch alongside PS VR2.
