It looks like psychopathic super-spy Gabriel Logan may be coming out of retirement if a recent rumour from Play Magazine is to be believed. Sillegamer reports the British mag has secured intelligence suggesting that Syphon Filter 4 will be releasing this Winter as a PS3 exclusive from SCE London (the team behind EyePet, EyeToy and PS Home). The report also hints at a February reveal alongside God Of War 4.
"As far as our spies tell us, Syphon Filter 4 will be announced and released during 2012 - they're not often wrong either. Developed by SCE London Studio (once thought to be Sony Bend), it will see a return to the world of shooting, espionage and Gabe Logan's superb name."
We want this to be true. The original Syphon Filter, and its sequels to some extent, were truly underrated examples of the stealth genre... and packed the most outrageously brilliant tazer ever. The PSP spin-offs were also surprisingly excellent. Considering that Syphon Filter 4 broke cover last year, we reckon that this rumour has some serious weight behind it.
