Syphon Filter 4 in development?

The rumoured and long awaited Syphon Filter 4 has made an appearance in the August 2011 edition of The Official PlayStation Magazine Italy, which has hinted at a possible 2012 release.

Syphon Filter 4 is said to be a direct sequel to Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow for the PSP, and is in development by SCE London Studio.

Syphon Filter 4 previously made an appearance on the official U.S. PlayStation Website, before it was pulled by Sony. However, eager fans of the franchise were quick to the copypasta button, posting the supposedly leaked information on the web, which includes details about the game and a quick glimpse at the new logo.

Stay tuned.
