Sony has released a video teasing the announcement of a new game from God of War and Twisted Metal creator David Jaffe at next month’s PlayStation Experience.
The clip is fairly vague (and only accompanied by a mysterious description: “Many surprises await at PlayStation Experience”), but the logo at the end belongs to Jaffe’s studio, The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency, which has been working on a game in secret for more than a year. It’s all but certain this tease is hinting that the mystery title will be coming to one or more PlayStation platforms, perhaps exclusively, with a reveal at the show.
Plus, if you look carefully, there’s also a URL visible on the sheet of paper for a couple frames at the 19 second mark. The address leads to a hidden page on the Bartlet Jones website, empty save for a video of Jaffe smearing what appears to be oatmeal all over his face while excitedly shouting, “We’re going to PSX.”
If you’re a little confused right now, don’t worry. The gist of it is that The Josiah Bartlet Supernatural Detective Agency, a real game studio, pretends to share an office with a fictional ghost hunter and is therefore steeped in all sorts of creepy imagery and occult happenings. We reported on the whole strange mess shortly after it started but have largely ignored it since. Checking in now, it looks like all we’ve really missed is Jaffe begging astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to appear in his game and buying pizzas for a PS4 launch line that didn’t exist.
Anyway, to get back on topic: Jaffe. Bartles & Jaymes Supernatural Detective Agency. New game. PlayStation Experience. December 6 and 7.
