Secret BBC Game Still Under Wraps

May 12, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


Hey, guess what? You know that game the BBC reporter was talking about, the one that left him speechless?

A Twitter conversation revealed that the game has still not been announced. Unfortunately, the reporter can’t say anything about the game because of the Non Disclosure Agreement restrictions. The question that was asked was, “Has the PS3 game that Sony showed you last February been announced yet? Thanks”. Darren Waters replied with a simple, “Nope!”.

If you’re still not aware of the article, here’s a bit of a flashback for you:

Well, I was shown a trailer for a game not due out till 2009 but was sworn to absolute secrecy. Apparently, Sony just wanted to give a glimpse of what the console will be capable of.

In fact, the game is such a secret that when I mentioned the game to Phil Harrison last week he was unsure at first whether even to admit the title existed. When I explained I had been shown it under strict Non Disclosure Agreement terms he looked relieved.

I don’t mean to be a tease – all I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is “in game”, as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion.

What do you think this game could possibly be? A sequel for a game? Maybe a new IP? Leave your comments below!
