The survival horror game, which has sparked plenty of speculation in recent weeks, is shrouded in mystery. It had been rumoured Abandoned could actually be a secret Silent Hill project in disguise, but the developers – Blue Box Game Studios – have repeatedly come out to say they have “no relations” with Silent Hill makers Konami, nor do they have any leaks with Hideo Kojima – who created the PT demo and had been pencilled in to reboot the iconic survival horror franchise with Silent Hills. And PS5 gamers will soon move a step closer to finding out more information about Abandoned.
This Friday the Abandoned trailer app will be launching for the PS5.
The app had been scheduled to release earlier on this month but was delayed to “localisation” issues.
The Abandoned trailer app will show in real-time what Abandoned will look like on the PS5.
This would make the Abandoned trailer app the first-of-its kind, and would mean gamers wouldn’t need to worry about video compression when watching any trailers.
It seems curious that Abandoned, a game from a little known studio, will be the first PS5 game to benefit from such an app.
But at launch PlayStation gamers shouldn’t expect too much, with Blue Box saying the reveal for Abandoned is “soon” but not this Friday.

Replying to one gamer the @BBGameStudios account tweeted: “Game reveal is very soon but not friday”.
Elsewhere this month Blue Box has had to once again brush aside any rumours that Abandoned is secretly a Silent Hill game.
The rumour mill went into overdrive this month, after it looked like the Blue Box Twitter was teasing Abandoned’s actual name was Silent Hill.
The account previously tweeted: “Guess the name: Abandoned = (First letter S, Last letter L). Reveal closing in… #PS5 #Exclusive”.
After plenty of fan excitement Blue Box again had to issue a statement denying any links with Kojima or Silent Hill.
The devs tweeted: “We wanted to set things straight. We have no relations with Konami. Silent Hill is owned by Konami. We do not have any relations with Hideo Kojima. It was never our intention to tease the name as Silent Hill. We sincerely apologize for this.”
Hasan Kahraman, the game director at Blue Box Game Studios, also had to post a video online after rumours emerged that his name was merely a persona for Hideo Kojima.
Kojima has form doing this, previously using the fake name Joakim Mogren to promote a game called The Phantom Pain – which was actually Metal Gear Solid 5 in disguise.
There has been plenty of rumours and speculation surrounding Abandoned, and the inbound trailer app should give some answers once and for all.
Blue Box hasn’t revealed a release time for the Abandoned trailer app, but it is pencilled in to launch on June 25.
