Sony might have revealed their first PS5 game, Godfall, at The Game Awards 2019 earlier this month and it certainly looks great, if the first PlayStation 5 in-game footage is anything to go by.
But outside of Godfall and a few rumours suggesting sequels are inbound for big PS4 exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War, little is known about PlayStation's exclusive lineup of games for the PS5.
There's a good chance we could be seeing long-time Sony collaborators, Housemarque, working on its own PlayStation 5 game.
But now, we may have seen evidence that another unannounced Sony game is in the works, too. Although it's all a bit cloak and dagger at the moment.
A now-deleted tweet earlier this month saw veteran actor and new PlayStation favourite, Tommie Earl Jenkins announce that he was on set for a PlayStation project in Burbank, CA.
Jenkins is currently best-known for playing Die-Hardman in PS4 exclusive Death Stranding, and after positive fan reaction to his performance, Sony would be keen to work with him again, right?

But what Sony role could Jenkins be taking on?
Is it something for say, Death Stranding DLC? It seems unlikely given that Kojima was, at the time of the tweet, on the other side of the world.
Could he be working with PlayStation directly? That's always possible, although we're not sure in what capacity that would be exactly.
"Maybe the voice of Thor or Odin in the next God of War", suggests one user over on video games forum site, Resetera. Maybe, but then that's some wild thinking, even if Sony Santa Monica are based in Los Angeles.
Insomniac, now a PlayStation first party studio, are another developer who are based in Burbank California. However, as noted by another Resetera user, they were already on their merry Christmas holiday when Jenkins was in LA.
But then another user suggested one more possibility.
It could be for a currently unannounced project that was also teased last year, which is in production over at Naughty Dog, the studio responsible for The Last of Us and Uncharted.

"Here's a video game scoop for you; Naughty Dog (developers of the Uncharted series and The Last of Us) are working on a new secret project which they are currently casting for in LA" says Twitter user Daniel Richtman , a well-known entertainment influencer working out of California.
"The lead of the game (or at least one of the leads) they are casting for is "A Black/African American male. 40's to 60's, short to medium length hair with a body type similar to those in the reference images. Strong but not chiseled."
Jenkins fits that brief, so he could well be working on the same project that this casting call was supposedly related to. But equally his new found popularity following Death Stranding surely makes for more reason to cast him in upcoming sony titles.
Sony is going to want to have a strong line-up of games to launch the PlayStation 5 with, so it makes sense that we're seeing many games in development now, ahead of big reveals next year.
We're sure to hear more about what Sony's planning in the coming months – and we'll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we learn anything concrete.
