"From the Syphon Filter series to Resistance: Retribution, to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Days Gone," it continued, "we are very excited to announce today that we are expanding the Bend Studio portfolio with a brand new IP".
Excited for their next game. Days Gone was a good open world game and they’re building on that. Sony Bend are talented developers.
I would love if Sony Bend do a bike club game, they got the bike down from Days Gone and the main character is an ex biker.
I would like an open world spy thriller. Syphon + Days Gone.
I think this is healthier for them, keep trying new things instead of putting all bet on Days Gone, they are too young and inexperienced as a studio. I would love to see Days Gone 2 one day, maybe after this next project.
Sony Bend is not a young studio. Is true that they are inexperienced since they never done a new IP and haven't made a home console game for more than decade until Days Gone. They made Syphon Filter games for PS1, PS2, PSP and Resistance Retribution PSP, and Uncharted Gold Abyss PSVita.
I think it's fair to say that the current team is a bit inexperienced as they were a MUCH smaller, different studio before Days Gone. That's not something that can be said about most of Sony's studios who've been making AAA console games for a long time.
And that's what I meant, young in experiences, Days Gone was their first full AAA, while it is not a bad game, you can see the quality is at least a tier below other Sony exclusives, they will get there if they don't give up, but it is good to try a few different directions to find out what they are strong at.

This was known. After Sony denied a sequel to Days Gone, they tried throwing them on an Uncharted title. The studio was vocally against it, and now they're working on something new. This is really old news.
The news is based on a tweet Bend just put out. There were discussions about a new IP being developed back in April, but this is confirmation of said game.
Not really. We knew they were working on something new but there was never confirmation of it being a entirely new IP. There were people begging for them to make another syphon filter but that's all I ever saw/heard about it. Them working on something new is old news but announcing it being a new IP is definitely fresh news... To me at least
Days gone was boring... Bring back slow moving zombies, make dark souls combat
Days gone is the best open world zombie game ever made.
That'd be Dying Light.
@Giblet I really loved dying Light; very much looking forward to the sequel. The parkour and combat and just the overall feel of the game really appealed to me. I loved the tone of it. Hopefully they've expanded on that foundation along with the new.
Let's fix what you said. Day Gone was boring.....to YOU. You don't speak for everyone. And every Zomie game doesn't have to have slow moving Zombies. And whuy does every game have t be Souls like lol? But at the end of the day, you're entitled to your opinion and so am I. Happy gaming.....
I want Syphon Filter back.
Not a new IP, but I’d love for them to get another go at Syphon Filter - that franchise is long overdue a reboot.
I'm confused... They said it's a new IP but it isn't a new IP? 🧐 I've never played syphon filter and I'm not sure if I want to go back to play those games so I'd be down for a new Siphon Filter to give a go!
Hope it is a single-player game with a third-person view.... like days gone.
Think they will mail it this time 👍
Aww shame, i was hoping to see how they could improve on days gone. Well hopefully their next game is another big title, i'd hate to see them go back to making smaller games.
