Is the PlayStation One game Syphon Filter going to have a reboot for the PlayStation 4 platform?

Syphon Filter is a popular game back in the golden days of the PlayStation One. It is a fast-paced, action-packed game that got many teenagers of that era hooked. Syphon Filter has a wide variety of game styles that you can play like full on action, stealth, espionage, etc.

Yesterday, as I was browsing the web, I found this article about the reboot of the classic PSone game, Syphon Filter. According to the author of that post, looks like there are rumors spreading on the internet about the possibility of Sony bringing the franchise back from the dead.

Syphon Filter Dev Jeff Ross? comment during the recent Q&A

Recently, the lead designer of the classic PlayStation One game Syphon Filter, Jeff Ross, had a Q&A interview with pixelempire. Jeff shinned a light in the possibility of a reboot of the action-packed, PSone game Syphon Filter and he said:

?As a developer, a big NO COMMENT on what is or isn?t happening with Syphon Filter.? He also added ?…But speaking as a fan of the series, I think a lot of stories have already been told in the Syphon Universe, and any new title would have to be fresh one way or another (a new storyline, a gameplay genre expansion, or possibly a reboot).?

Conclusion for the Syphon Filter Reboot

As for the conclusion, it is still a rumor and there?s still no proof to back it up?though if you are going to take the Dev?s fan?s perspective opinion as proof then yes, there?s one right there. It would be awesome though to see Gabe and Lian in full 1080p HD. The game is still a legend for all PSone fans out there?even though some have forgotten about it.

Personally, if they ever confirmed this rumor to be a fact, I would be SO excited and might buy a copy of it?given the chance and the money of course.
