Deep Down, the mysterious free-to-play PS4 exclusive, was on display at Sony's booth this past week at E3. Although still only announced for Japan, the gameplay trailer was dubbed in English and shared on both the US and EU Playstation Blogs. This only furthering speculation that the game will be announced for Western territories.
On the PS Blog, Yoshinori Ono of Capcom made clear that he understood fan's eagerness to get more "concrete" details on Deep Down but that release date information was not yet available. As far as what is holding the project up he said, "The development team continues to work hard engaging in intense trial and error methodology in order to find the best way to utilize PS4â€²s potential when it comes to online games."
If they are indeed planning on releasing Deep Down in the West, this seemed like a missed opportunity. Perhaps with Bloodborne already on the E3 ticket they figured they could save it for the Tokyo Game Show when they may have a solid release date. Regardless, the game looks impressive and would be a good addition to the Playstation 4's exclusive US lineup.
