Take the following with a grain of salt as this only remains a rumor for now and nothing has been officially confirmed by Sony yet but well known Industry Insider @Tidux had some big PS4 news to share on Twitter.

According to the Swedish industry insider production has started on a long awaited IP from the Playstation 2 which will be coming exclusively to the PS4.

There are so many it could be it feels like. Im personally hoping it's Jak and Daxter!

Nyxus3188d ago

Would be awesome but I doubt ND has the manpower to make both this and Uncharted 4 at the same time.

Haru3188d ago (Edited 3188d ago )

Actually it has been allready confirmed that ND are working on another project beside Uncharted 4

DarkOcelet3188d ago

Ok i gathered a small list of games that might get the sequel.

Jak 4
Getaway 3
Dark Cloud 3
The last Guardian or Shadow Of the Colossus 2
Okami 2
Rouge Galaxy 2
Crash Bandicoot 4

id have to say Jak or Bully. i love Jak but hopefully its Bully to make up for the what-the-hell-ever-happened-to -The-Agent ordeal.

Jaqen_Hghar3188d ago

doesn't have to be ND first of all (Sanzaru made the best Sly yet so a man would trust them with it) and second of all ND has 2 teams.

kayoss3188d ago (Edited 3188d ago )

how bout God of War 4??

Nevermind, Missed the "PS2 IP" part.

spacewarrior13188d ago

i'd rather they cancel Uncharted 4 and work on Jak 4 instead. ahh back when Naughty dog made fun games not generic third person shooters.

BitbyDeath3188d ago

From Tidux, take with over 9000 trucks of salt.

HammadTheBeast3188d ago

Shadow of the Colossus 2 doesn't need to happen. It was a good game on its own right, I don't think they'll be able to capture the same atmosphere when people have played the first.

MysticStrummer3188d ago

@Ocelot - The Last Guardian 2? I must have been in a coma when the first one released. ; )

@kayoss - God of War 1 and 2 were on PS2 so GoW4 can't be ruled out, though I hope if the franchise continues it will be a different hero against a different pantheon of gods.

OT - Syphon Filter debuted on PS1, but I will dare to dream.

chrismichaels043188d ago

Syphon Filter reboot or Jak 4 would be my vote.

breakpad3188d ago (Edited 3188d ago )

Monster Hunter for FS ....

morganfell3188d ago

His tweet seems to indicate it isn't a Sony IP but rather is exclusive to the PS4. Also if it is a Sony IP you do not need to state coming exclusively to the PS4 as he did. So I would discount games such as The Getaway or Jak. There is a difference.

He made a point to say from the PS2 era. Everything in that cryptic message points to exclusive from a 3rd party. I would look at a title originally scheduled to be multiplatform that was cancelled or placed on hold. Something along the lines of Starcraft Ghost.

vishmarx3188d ago (Edited 3188d ago )

Shadow hearts?
is it big enough?
rogue galaxy?
dark cloud

bouzebbal3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

He said PS4 exclusive, not Sony IP

MajorLazer3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

Getaway 3, please! I will cry tears of joy if that is the case

ChronoJoe3187d ago


Yes but ND also said (in a game informer interview) that they're done making cartoony games. So Jack and Daxter seems unlikely. Although if it was Jak and Daxter, an ultra-realistic approach might prove interesting.

Still, I expect it to be Syphon Filter, especially with Sony bend hiring recently.

It's hard to pinpoint since we don't know if the franchise went multiplatform for a little while during the PS3/360 or it's always been an exclusive to Sony platforms. It might of been something which has never been heard of since.

Jak and Daxter


The Getaway

Dark Cloud

TimeSplitters (Wasn't there a rumour this could of been an exclusive a while back)


Resident Evil Outbreak

Blackleg-sanji3188d ago

Ok plz o plz o plz dark cloud 3 that's all I want man at least give me an collection of the other 2

DarkOcelet3188d ago

If Resident Evil Outbreak file 3 happened. I will die from the shock of the announcement. The game is an underrated masterpiece that should have been released in the PS3/360 era.

Muzikguy3188d ago

All of those are great. I'd love to see a new Timesplitters game. That on current hardware would be awesome! They all would actually

hkgamer3188d ago

out of your list, getaway or dark cloud seems most likely.

i wouldnt mind another outbreak. never played it because of no online mp in pal territories.

johnsonbat3188d ago

Timeslpitters would turn me on.

kmeck5183187d ago


Is there a strongly agree button?

Elite-uk3187d ago (Edited 3187d ago )

please let it be RE outbreak file #3, that would be class!.

Edit: my money is on Timesplitters or Crash.

Mega243188d ago

Or, it could be Getaway 3! So many games, nostalgia!

BG115793188d ago

And no one is saying Syphon Filter...

deadpoolio3163188d ago

Because at this point we don't need another generic Splinter Cell clone....Syphon Filter was fine in its time, other games have come along that are better than what Syphon Filter ever was
