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.
Mother fuck. My rumour mill got screwed again. https://t.co/BWOWd6MMA5— Nick (@Shpeshal_Nick) August 11, 2021
Nah this is about the From PS5 Exclusive. That was my rumour mill for next week.— Nick (@Shpeshal_Nick) August 11, 2021
You know what? Screw it. I’ll risk pissing someone off. Don’t wanna get scooped again. Been told Wipeout is coming back. Planned to be a VR2/PS5 title. Most likely an XDEV project. Still early in the project.— Nick (@Shpeshal_Nick) August 11, 2021
