The iconic duo of “the video game industry” and “leaked secrets” has allegedly struck again, as footage of what is purported to be a brand-new franchise in the PlayStation portfolio has leaked onto the web.
According to the Reddit post hosting the footage, a new project, which industry insider Dusk Golem has nicknamed “Ooze,” is in the works. The author of the post does not specify which studio is working on it, only saying that it’s “based in Europe.” A follow-up image posted to ResetEra implies the studio could be Outriders dev People Can Fly, as the word “Red” on the leaked footage’s HUD matches an internal codename shown on a PCF slide deck.
The game is allegedly a sci-fi themed RPG developed entirely in Unreal Engine 5 in partnership with PlayStation for the PS5. The footage shows a futuristic game where a character aims a gun at a massive structure that appears to have tentacles sticking out of it. The footage has been archived and is unable to be viewed as of this writing.
