A lot of this is admittedly conjecture, but the evidence is solid enough to at least entertain this notion- but freelance concept designer, Ioan Dumitrescu, has posted some rather interesting concept art for an “undisclosed project” for Sony. The images were, as a matter of fact, posted over a year ago, and they were only recently spotted by AGD.
The images depict what appears to be artwork for a first person wild west game, showing multiple things, including a rather dramatic train crash from a great height, and a gun fight. Just to ensure there is no ambiguity or confusion about any of this, the pictures are accompanied by the caption ‘I love westerns!’ too. Subtle, dude.
Dumitrescu has also worked on Sony’s VR luge game, so if this western game ever moved beyond the planning stage, and if it is still in the works, then it is probably going to be for the PlayStation VR too- we’ll probably hear more of it at E3, Gamescom, or PlayStation Experience this year, if that is the case.
In the meanwhile, you can check out the images for this game for yourself below.
