Rumor: New Astro Bot to be Announced Soon

Rumor: New Astro Bot to be Announced Soon - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 24 May 2024 / 2,616 Views

Leaker Billlbil-Kun on Dealabs, who has accurately leaked the PlayStation Plus lineup in the past, is claiming a new Astro Bot game is in development for the PlayStation 5 and it will be announced in the next 15 days.

"According to our information, a new game from the Astro universe is being prepared by the Team Asobi studio," said the leaker (via Google Translate). "We think (although we are not 100% certain) that it will simply be called Astro Bot."

The leaker added, "Among other information we have obtained, it seems that part of the game will be playable in an environment located in the heart of a desert . One of the new characters in this game would be a fennec fox in the form of a robot sharing some similarities with Astro."

It is reported the game will be for the PlayStation 5 and it will not require a PlayStation VR2.

Best case scenario is that the game is enhanced for PSVR2 but does not require it.

I haven't been able to play Astro Bots Rescue because it requires VR. Hopefully this new title doesn't require VR. Astro's Playroom is a great little game that celebrates PlayStation and uses the DualSense masterfully.

I hope it's free like the first one, but I know better. Either way, I'll be playing it day one because it's my favorite PS5 title... by far.

It was a neat pack in launch game but like Snail Maze I don't know if I would pay money for it. I wish Japan studio was back to make more diverse stuff again.

hmm, this reads like you think they're just adding a price tag to the current pack-in title. What? But yeah, more games from JP would be great.
