Sony to announce ''Project Mephisto'' at Gamescom according to show's official nominee list

Gamescom kicks off tomorrow which means you need to prepare yourselves for yet another awesome week of gaming as the world turns its attention to the expo to see what is being played and being announced. Speaking of announcements, something popped up over the weekend that is quite interesting. According to the official Gamescom 2018 Awards nominee list, there is a game we have no idea about called ''Project Mephisto''.

The thing is, this is not some Mickey Mouse list of games, rather an official awards nominee list with official categories by the official organizers. Under the category "Best Console Game - PlayStation 4", Marvel's Spider-Man and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is listed alongside this mysterious game. Keep in mind that this nominated game does have a "working title" next to it which means whatever it is has not been officially announced yet. 

Those of you who know the Diablo series will know that Mephisto is the Lord of Hatred in the series which is the first hint of a possible Diablo announcement at the show. We know Blizzard is working on multiple Diablo games at the moment after they teased us a few weeks ago with an announcement. 

It could also be a brand new IP from Sony themselves as the company tags quite a lot of things with a "Project" tag. Project Morpheus was PS VR's codename so Project Mephisto could be new hardware or even a new game. The fact that it is in the top three games nominated at Gamescom is a big deal and it is alongside the likes of Spider-Man and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. 

We will know more this week as Gamescom kicks off on 21 August 2018 at 09:00 SA time. The Gamescom opening ceremony starts at 11:00 am tomorrow morning where all the major announcements are planned to take place. You can watch the event live here. What do you think this could be? Let us know in the comments below.
