Sony has added a new application called PPSA05753_00 on the PlayStation Store, and after a brief search, some data miners have discovered that it is a new project linked to the Matrix franchise. The only information extracted, at the moment, is a very explicit image with the title The Matrix Awakens – An Unreal Engine 5 Experience, which would seem to suggest the release of a new video game related to the series.
The Matrix franchise has recently made a comeback thanks to the film Matrix Resurrections, which will be released in the US on December 22, 2021. Sony’s new project could be a tie-in video game developed with Epic’s graphics engine, as well as a tech demo to advertise the film or even just a PlayStation VR game. In all cases, Sony has already entered the project in the database confirms the intention to exploit the film’s popularity to advertise it (or, conversely, to exploit the project itself to advertise the film). It is more than plausible a presentation later this month, possibly as early as The Game Awards 2021.
