Sony may be gearing up to announce a new SOCOM game for PS5, hints a new leak. The game could potentially join the several other confirmed PS5 exclusives, such as Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West, which were announced at the console reveal event in June.
A new leak from 4chan has fans thinking that a new SOCOM game could be announced for PS5 soon. An anonymous leaker hid the game's name in their message, by capitalizing some words in the middle of a sentence. The leaker has capitalized the letter "S" in "Sure," the letter "O" in "Or" and the last three letters of "GamesCOM" to spell out the popular military shooter series.
The reason that so many fans have been quick to think that this leak is the real deal is that the same poster has been right about two other things in the last 24 hours. On August 2, the leaker said that Sony would announce another State of Play event on August 3, which the company did. That leak also said that it would be "less like other State of Plays" and would not feature the PS5 price or release date. Sony has confirmed that there will be no big PS5 announcements at the event, which all goes with what the leaker has said.
If this is true, then I might plop down a PS5 pre-order. SOCOM 2 was maybe my favorite online multiplayer game of all time for the PS2 and while they've failed to garner that same great gameplay since, GG does inspire a deal of confidence in this one actually being good. We know for a fact that GG is working on a multiplayer shooter from their second studio according to job hires, but this makes me believe it might actually be true.
Please not another Killzone, those games are trash. Nobody cared when it launched with the PS4, and nobody cares about it now.
