The horror game for the new PlayStation was due to be released in June, but its trailer was delayed until August.
Is Abandoned a new Silent Hill? Is your director Hideo Kojima disguised with a mustache? Or is it simply an indie game that got out of hand with marketing? Whatever the truth, we will have an answer in just a few weeks. Some of you will remember that Blue Box Game Studios was going to present the game last month through a PlayStation 5 app, with its first gameplay and a release date. A presentation that was delayed until August the same day of its debut. Well, Hasan Kahraman’s studio just announced the new date to present Abandoned.
The horror game will be presented on August 10 with an introduction, followed by the first trailer for Abandoned “later in August”, without specifying the date. Likewise, Blue Box confirms that PS5 users who have not downloaded the application from the previous time, they can download and install it from July 29. It is not often that a studio creates a special console app to present its game to the world, instead of taking advantage of the multiple events of the summer to show its trailer.
Something that helps fuel the noise around this project. And you also have to remember that rumors about Abandoned, Silent Hill and Hideo Kojima They are not just conspiracies of the people: it is something that the study of the game itself has encouraged. Not surprisingly, Abandoned is just the provisional name of the game, and it was Blue Box that hinted that the game would be called Silent Hill before having to apologize and clarify that they are not related to Konami.
We may be facing a case of gambling that is drowning in its own “hype”, or that there really is something special hidden behind this promotional campaign. The facts are that Blue Box has made us all pay attention to what they want to show, and that in a few weeks we will leave doubts about what this Abandoned really is. Returning to the theme of Kojima, we remind you that Death Stranding: Director’s Cut has detailed all its news, although it seems that its creator does not like the name of this edition.
