The Chant seemingly cancelled on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – Thumbsticks

The Chant, the creepy horror set on a spiritual retreat, looks like it will no longer come to PS4 and Xbox One.

Hot on the heels of WB Games canceling the last-gen versions of Arkham KnightsBrass Token has today announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Song have been cancelled.

Well, they sort of announced it. It’s more what they didn’t say that matters here.

Where previously The Song was slated for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, the latest press release – accompanying the above PS5-focused teaser trailer – said:

“The Chant is slated for release later this year on PlayStation® 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.”

Which seems pretty clear-cut, doesn’t it? If you cancel a version, even by omission, then it’s basically over.

However, when asked about it by the Gematsu Twitter account, the official The Song Twitter account replied that Brass Token is “focusing development on Gen 9 and PC to make sure they meet the highest quality standards,” which sounds rather like the Arkham Knights announcement, before adding that “news regarding Gen 8 versions will follow in the near future.”

So… you’re saying there’s a chance?
