Video gamers rumours can be ridiculous at the best of times. However, the rumour mill has turned into a realm of conspiracy and doubt, thanks to the upcoming PS5 indie game Abandoned. Back in April, we had a look at the game’s announcement, which was flanked by claims that the project was secretly a Hideo Kojima game. Despite various attempts to quash the rumour, fans are still convinced that the project doesn’t exist. Here’s why many gamers still believe that Abandoned is actually a new Silent Hill game.
Of course, if you’ve been paying attention to Abandoned’s situation, then you’ll know that its developer, Blue Box Studios, has tried had to suppress any rumours of Hideo Kojima’s involvement. From Tweets outright denying the claims to Hasan Kahraman, the game’s director, appearing on camera to prove they actually exist, the studio has gone above and beyond to ensure people know what to expect.
