Intergalactic The Heretic Prophet may be the next big PS5 game, but to YouTube it’s just priest beef and memes

To be fair, I’d be down for a game featuring Colombian metal, religious chat, and Warhammer jokes.

Good news, fans of big games companies doing things that might eventually lead to something interesting at some vague point in the future: Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed a trademark for ‘Intergalactic The Heretic Prophet’ in the US.

What is Intergalactic The Heretic Prophet, you ask? Well, nobody - likely aside from Sony itself - seems to have a clue, aside from that those are four words the company seemingly fancies having the option to use for something.

Here’s the listing for said trademark, filed on February 12, which Gematsu suggests will be a bit of an out of character move for a modern games company if it does turn out to be the name of a project that’s yet to be announced. We don’t think the name screams the kind of thing that'd necessarily be up the alley of one of Sony’s biggest studios, but it could be something a smaller team under the console maker’s umbrella, such as Returnal developer Housemarque, might do.

That said, making any of those kinds of guesses is kind of pointless at this juncture, given that googling the title offers literally zero relevant info, aside from articles a bit like this one. That said, if you put Intergalactic The Heretic Prophet into YouTube, you do get some interesting, if definitely totally irrelevant, stuff.

What do I mean? Well, the first result that pops up is an upload of a song called Heretic Prophet by Colombian industrial metal band Koyi K Utho, who’ve been active since 2000 and whose keyboard player goes by the stage name ‘Mr F**kars’. It’s not too bad to be honest, though I’m not sure I can hear as much of the Sex Pistols influence their Wikipedia page cites as much I can the clear inspiration from Pantera.

Aside from that, I’m sorry to say you’re in for an attack of the nerdy stuff our very own Connor Makar might like, thanks to some Warhammer fan edits and memes which all mention the word heretic or heresy.

Then, if you go a bit further down, you get what appears to be some pretty heated beef between American Christian televangelist types expressed via diss track-style sermon. I don’t know who John MacArthur is, what a hyper-Calvinist is, or why taking the mark of the beast during the tribulation is such a big deal, but I think it’s a crime those things weren’t used to build up an influencer-style boxing match back in 2014.

Do any of these things have anything to do with that trademark? Almost definitely not.

If you’re more interested in almost certainly reading far too much into things that may or may not be related to what’s going on at Xbox, Phil Spencer’s recently liked some tweets about handhelds.
