There is definitely something strange about the upcoming PlayStation 5 survival game Abandoned, but we fear that speculation is now getting out of hand. Two of the top-rated posts on PS5’s underreddit now concern Konami tweets about upcoming Silent Hill merchandise (a “connection”, apparently); Meanwhile, fans have tracked down Blue Box Game Studios’ “boss” Hasan Kahraman’s PlayStation Network account and started sending him messages.
The story hasn’t really evolved much since our massive article about it, though Summer games party host Geoff Keighley has claimed that he has been in contact with Kahraman and is trying to get some screenshots of the title. It is claimed that a demo will be released on PS5 immediately, where you can “watch”
The problem is that fans at this point are expecting something big here – whether a Silent Hill sequel, a secret Hideo Kojima title or something else. But while we agree that there is something wrong with this project – it’s the strangest hype cycle we’ve ever seen for a new release – no wonder it automatically means it’s worth noting. In fact, the opposite is true – Blue Box Game Studios, provided that is a real developer, plays one very dangerous game here.
