After the flop Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 released in 2014, many are clamoring for a new chapter that perhaps embraces the classic 2D concept of the saga.
As reported by GameRant , well-known leaker KatharsisT revealed that Sony would be working on a new Castlevania game em> in collaboration with Konami . The news also goes hand in hand with the alleged Silent Hill for PS5 and the rumors about the remake of Metal Gear Solid .
KatharsisT has in fact specified that the two Japanese companies were “in talks” regarding the Castlevania series, but it is not clear whether the discussions were successful or not.
