Play: Syphon Filter 4, God of War IV announcements next month

Syphon Filter developed in London.

Both Syphon Filter 4 and God of War IV will be announced for PlayStation 3 next month, according to the latest issue of U.K. gaming magazine Play.

Syphon Filter 4, says the mag, is in development at SCE London Studio. The Syphon Filter series is normally handled by SCE Bend Studio.

“As far as our spies tell us, Syphon Filter 4 will be announced and released during 2012 – they’re not often wrong either. Developed by SCE London Studio (once thought to be Sony Bend), it will see a return to the world of shooting, espionage and Gabe Logan’s superb name.”

God of War IV, on the other hand, is being handled by its home studio.

“Sony Santa Monica’s call for an online dev to join its ranks has many thinking the inevitable God of War IV will include online play. We could stop and ask why, but then we could also ask why there’s another game when [God of War III] was meant to be Kratos’s last outing. We’re not complaining though.”
