The existence of a major PS5 RPG remake was leaked ahead of its reveal, but unfortunately, there are no details on what exactly the mystery RPG is, but the internet has theories. In addition to West horizon forbidden, God of War Ragnarok, The Last of Us Part II multiplayer, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Marvel Wolverine, Y Gran Turismo 7, PlayStation fans can now anticipate a “high-end RPG” for the PS5, and it looks like this RPG will be a remake, presumably of an RPG from the PS1 or PS2 era.
The leak comes from the path of the developer behind the project, Mutan Insight, a subsidiary of Mutan, who has worked on series such as Final Fantasy, Person, Y Atelier and Blue Reflection, although only as a support study. According to a job listing for the studio, he’s working on a “high-end RPG (remake / private title) for PlayStation 5” on Unreal Engine 5.
At the time of publishing, it is unclear if Mutan Insight has been tasked with developing this mysterious project as its lead developer or if, once again, it is only acting as support. And this is important, as it would shed light on the ambition of the project. If Mutan Insight is the lead developer, this is unlikely to be a big budget affair. Saying “high-end” suggests that’s exactly what it’s going to be.
So far, none of the parties involved has commented on any of this. We don’t expect this to change, but if it does, we’ll make sure to update the story accordingly. Meanwhile, many PlayStation fans are convinced that this is the rumored Chrono Cross remake, however names like Legend of the Dragon, Final Fantasy VII Remake Part IIand a PS5 port of Final fantasy 15 they are also being launched.
