Four Syphon Filter games rated for PS5 & PS4 – likely for PS Plus

Almost the entire Siphon Filter series has been age rated for the PS5 and PS4, but no one’s sure exactly why.

Stealth shooter series Siphon Filter is one of Sony’s less famous franchises, especially since it hasn’t had a new entry since 2007. While no new games are on the horizon, it looks like Sony does at least have some re-releases in mind.

Much like Sonic Origins earlier this week, four Siphon Filter games were recently spotted on the South Korean ratings board. Specifically, the first two games, as well as Siphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Siphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow.

All four titles are rated for the PlayStation 4 and 5. Although there’s nothing to confirm this, the most likely scenario is that Sony intends on adding these to its revamped PlayStation Plus service.

The new, tiered service is set to arrive in June and, for £13.49 a month, you can get access to PlayStation Plus Premium. This tier will include a library of retro games from the original PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PSP.

The aforementioned Siphon Filter games all fit this bill. The first two released for the original PlayStation, while Dark Mirror and Logan’s Shadow launched for the PSP, before being ported to the PlayStation 2.

In the latter two’s case, it’s unclear whether the PlayStation 2 or PSP versions of the game would be added to PS Plus. Or perhaps both will be made available.

Curiously, Siphon Filter 3 for the original PlayStation and Siphon Filter: The Omega Strain for the PlayStation 2 haven’t been rated, so it seems they’re being excluded for whatever reason. You can see the ratings list for yourself over on Gematsu.

This isn’t the first time Siphon Filter’s name has come up this year. Series developer Bend Studio’s Jeff Ross, who directed Days Gone, revealed in an interview that he and his team were once asked to reboot the series. However, Ross turned the proposal down.

Ross is no longer at Bend Studio, which is currently working on a brand new property, ruling out a Days Gone 2. Although one rumor says that, while not a direct sequel, it is a spiritual successor to Siphon Filter.

Twitter user Oops Leaks claimed earlier this month that it’s an open world stealth action game with online and co-op elements. So far, there are no official details to corroborate this and even Oops Leaks admits to being skeptical about it.
