What is Project Bates?
As per unofficial data from the ResetEra forum, this “big publisher” is Sony Interactive Entertainment. That title is codenamed Project Bates and is now in the “early stages of development.”
Motion capture videos have recently been launched. It is not known what the production is going to be about as forum users are writing that it will be a single-player title, but those are their speculations rather than specifics.
We will have to wait and get some more credible news about this specific Project Bates. Are you excited for another great title from Sony Interactive Entertainment?
