Inside was released on Xbox One and PC in June and received very positive reviews. Talk of a PS4 version began when Trophies for Inside appeared online, and a report later said it would be available by the end of August.

In GameSpot's Inside review, Alex Newhouse awarded it an 8/10, describing it as a "beautiful, haunting, and memorable game" and "a worthy follow-up to Limbo."

He continued: "The real achievement of this game is the way that it crafts its narrative: detailed environments convey the bizarre world that you travel through; introspective moments are filled with minimalist sound design and just the barest touches of music; and the things you must do to complete your journey force you to confront the realities of humanity, freedom, and existence."

Following the launch of Inside, Playdead's chief executive, Dino Patti, left the company to "seek new challenges."

"Following almost 10 incredible years building Playdead from an idea to two dents in the games industry, I'm leaving to seek new challenges," he said.
