Sleepwalker might be a new game headed to PS4.Earlier two new trademark filings had been discovered that indicated a new Sony exclusive for the PS4. The trademarks were registered by the same registrar that filed trademarka for Horizon: Zero Dawn and the Decima Engine.
The registrar, known as Boult Wade Tennant, had filed trademarks for “V” and “Sleepwalker”. The latter was known to be a game as it was filed Nice classes 9 and 41. Now, we’ve all but confirmed that Sleepwalker is a new Sony exclusive game. Evidence suggests that Sony will soon break the silence regarding Sleepwalker and confirm that it is indeed a new video game.
What makes this news even more exciting is that Sony has secured a locked Reddit community page for Sleepwalker. As of now, the page is invite only and can only be accessed by mods. The page is about 20 days old, while the trademark was found back in December 2016.
But the question remains: Which studio could be working on this (possible) new game? We can rule out a few major studios right away: Guerilla Games just got done with Horizon: Zero Dawn, so it seems unlikely that they would reveal a new game so soon. Naughty Dog has its hands full with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Last of Us 2.
Sony Santa Monica is busy with God of War 4, which they’ll be presenting at E3. Kojima is working on Death Stranding, while Sony Bend is arriving with Days Gone. Interestingly, Sucker Punch is currently working on an unknown game which could turn out to be Sleepwalker.
For now, we can only speculate about what Sleepwalker could turn out to be. A new game? A sequel to an existing IP? Hopefully Sony will answer all our questions during their E3 2017 press event.
