What Is Project Mephisto? 3 Possibilities For Sony’s Rumored Gamescom Reveal

Last Wednesday, Gamescom released their list of 2018 award nominees, featuring 16 categories made up of numerous upcoming and previous 2018 games. But while titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Life is Strange 2 are up a handful of different awards, all eyes have been on a mysterious placeholder that was revealed in “Best PlayStation 4 Game,” titled Project Mephisto.

So what exactly could this game be? Speculation has bounced around between an indie title under the same name that was revealed in a forum years ago, to a few big name AAA games that would be able to rival the likes of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for the title of  “Best PlayStation 4 Game.” Here are three games that could make sense.

Diablo 2 Remaster

One of the first things that sprung to mind when Project Mephisto popped under “Best Console Game – Sony PlayStation 4” was a new Diablo game. Recently it was revealed that Activision Blizzard has multiple Diablo projects in the works. The news came in the form of a video in which Diablo community manager Brandy “Nevalistis” Camel talks about the future of the franchise.

Unfortunately, fans hoping for it to be Diablo 4 are likely going to be disappointed, as there is no way Blizzard gives Sony such a huge reveal months away from BlizzCon.

Instead, it is far more likely that the title could be a Diablo 2 remaster. While it was simply a DLC, Reaper of Souls was revealed at Gamescom 2013 in Germany, indicating it wouldn’t be the first time Blizzard had a major reveal take place at the show. Another interesting bit of information supporting that Project Mephisto is Diablo 2 remaster lies in the placeholder title name itself. Mephisto is actually one of the Prime Evils in Diablo 2, so using his name as a placeholder would make sense.

Mephisto also just got revealed as a new character for Heroes of the Storm. Maybe a PS4 port is on the way? Why the sudden interest in Diablo 2 huh, Blizzard? So many questions.
