Deep Down is a PS4 exclusive Dark Souls-like game with a modern twist and unfortunately, Capcom hasn’t said a word about the game since 2015. All we know, is that the company renewed the game’s trademark in the US on February 9th.
The most we can infer from this, is that it’s not canceled and we might even hear more about it than a couple trailers in the future. Be that in the near or far distant future. It also could mean nothing at all.
Furthermore, Deep Down was announced to be free-to-play in 2014 and came with Capcom’s assurance that they wanted “to finish a game that fully uses the PS4 hardware specs.”
With the release of the PS4 Pro, I doubt that rings true anymore, unless the company has been working on it without anyone knowing. Indeed, renewing the trademark is probably nothing more than Capcom bookmarking the idea for later.
Who knows if we’ll hear more, but I certainly hope so. Despite Deep Down‘s obvious similarity to Dark Souls, I don’t think trying to emulate such a good game series is a bad thing if done well. I’d like to see what this modern spin can do for such a hardcore dungeon crawler, as long as it isn’t as jarring as Assassin’s Creed.
