The PS4 has been the biggest selling console of this generation and that’s arguably down to its impressive list of exclusive games.
From God of War, to Horizon Zero Dawn, to Bloodborne, to Unchartered 4 – there are so many great exclusive games to play on the PS4.
And this impressive stream of exclusive game releases is set to continue with the PS4 getting some great looking titles soon.
Last of Us 2, Death Stranding and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake are among the most highly anticipated games coming to the PS4 in the future.
And PlayStation fans were left stunned after this week claims emerged that one top PS4 exclusive was getting cancelled.
It was claimed in a YouTube video that has been viewed tens of thousands of times that Ghost of Tsushima is getting cancelled.
Ghost of Tsushima is the latest title from inFAMOUS developers Sucker Punch and sees players transported to the age of the samurai in Japan.
PS4 games warning – Shock claims about popular exclusive getting CANCELLED emerge
The Ghost of Tsushima cancelled claims were made in a post by YouTube channel The Blind Profit.
The channel has just over 1,000 subscribers but the video (at the time of writing) has been viewed around 80,000 times.
While the video’s title is certainly eye-catching, what’s even more telling is the date it was posted.
Yes, the video was published on April 1 – and right at the end of the video a skit is shown which reveals it was all an April Fools’ prank.
But that hasn’t stopped people being concerned with fans on Twitter still posting days afterwards about the hoax believing it’s real.
One fan on Friday April 5 tweeted: “What the hell Ghost of Tsushima has been cancelled”.
Another posted: “Ghost of tsushima has been cancelled? Nooooooo!!!!!!”
And one wrote: “@SuckerPunchProd is ghost of Tsushima cancelled??? Asking for a friend.”
Ghost of Tsushima is one of the most highly anticipated PS4 games on the horizon
Google stats also shows that ‘Ghost of Tsushima cancelled’ is the biggest related search right now to the PS4 game.
So, while PS4 fans may have been left stunned after hearing Chinese whispers about Ghost of Tsushima getting cancelled there’s nothing to fear.
Ghost of Tsushima hasn’t been cancelled and the rumours just originated from an April Fools’ Day prank.
In other Ghost of Tsushima news, the release date for the highly anticipated PS4 release date may have leaked.
The Ghost of Tsushima cancelled claims were still being posted days after April 1
A listing on Swedish retailer Spelbutiken’s site may have revealed that Ghost of Tsushima will be out on PS4 on August 30.
This could simply be a placeholder date but placeholders tend to be on the last day of the year.
August 30 would be a very specific placeholder date, which may indicate this is when Ghost of Tsushima will be out on PS4.
That date is also a Friday, which is when most triple A games get released such as the recent Devil May Cry 5.
This may also give further weight that the rumoured August 30 release date for Ghost of Tsushima is genuine.
