There are also rumours that Konami will announce a number of new Metal Gear Solid projects.
The most likely candidate for the PlayStation Showcase is the rumoured Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake.
Konami is reportedly working on a Metal Gear Solid Collection, featuring remastered versions of the original trilogy.
Elsewhere, fans have discovered evidence that a Bloodborne has been developed for PC.
With Sony releasing multiple PlayStation exclusives on PC in recent years, there’s a good chance the FromSoftware classic will get a port.
