Sony launches mysterious teaser site for unnamed title

Sony Japan has launched a mysterious teaser site for an unnamed title. The page features a looping animation of a dark figure wandering the desert. The word “desert,” appears in the site’s URL and title with a countdown suggesting that more details will be revealed five days from now on Wednesday, June 1.

The desert imagery has led some to speculate that the site’s upcoming reveal could be related to Uncharted 3. The desert scenery looks very similar to concept art and screenshots previously released. But we hope that the teaser site will have to do with Journey, the next title expected from Thatgamecompany, the development studio behind Flow and Flower.

    Maybe it's Figaro and they're remaking Final Fantasy VI in HD... Okay, no it's not.

    As thatgamecompany's Community Manager, I'd say that it's not. We don't have an "official" denial, but the look and feel of that Flash ad just isn't like Journey at all. Uncharted 3, most likely.
  • IsaacSchwarz - May 28, 2011 6:06 p.m.

    Here's the site:
  • Terrorrizor - May 28, 2011 6:54 a.m.

    Did anyone actually post the damn site url yet or have I just not spotted here? If anyone could post a link I'd say thank you.

    tacoman38... sweet lord I hope you're right! Fuck Uncharted in it's over rated ass.

    @dphoenix I wish I could take credit for the work, but that was actually pretty much a straight copy-paste from Reddit.
  • dphoenix192 - May 28, 2011 12:16 a.m.

    I guess Kilburn solved that mystery, although I still don't get how you would think its journey over uncharted.
  • Thequestion 121 - May 28, 2011 12:15 a.m.

    This is definitely for Uncharted 3. When I hovered over the facebook button, there was a sound that's from the Uncharted games.
  • Kilburn474 - May 28, 2011 12:10 a.m.

    That plane in the image i linked above is ripped DIRECTLY from Uncharted 3 art:
  • Kilburn474 - May 28, 2011 12:05 a.m.

    It's Uncharted 3. Decompile the flash. You'll get some unique object names: kemuri hikou hikouki yuge asa yoru kakushi Also some graphics: But just for the hell of it, the translations of those names are: kemuri = smoke hikou and hikouki = flying and airplane yuge = steam asa = morning yoru = evening kakushi = hidden
  • SumthingStupid - May 28, 2011 12:01 a.m.

    the picture looks like uncharted from the early pictures they showed maybe the wasteland from Jak 3?
  • dphoenix192 - May 27, 2011 11:55 p.m.

    I don't even see a similar art style. Looks more like Uncharted 3.
