Syphon Filter Vita in the hands of Sony Bend?

Sony Bend may already be more well known for their work on the upcoming PS Vita launch title, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, than their excellent PSP Syphon Filter titles, but it looks like they could be heading up a new entry in the espionage franchise all the same.

This month’s issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine UK spreads rumors that the developer is already working on the next Syphon Filter game which will appear on Vita. Could this be the same Syphon Filter that’s rumored to hit PS3 in Winter 2012? Perhaps a Ruin style PS3 to Vita title?

Whatever the situation, we’re not likely to find out until Golden Abyss launches with Vita in the West early next year.
