The Callisto Protocol Will Be “The Scariest Game On Next-Gen Platforms”
While The Game Awards 2020 did not bring with it the announcement of a new Dead Space game, what we got instead appears to be the next best thing. The Callisto Protocol is a brand new horror game that’s – apparently – set in the PUBG universe, and according to its developer, it’ll be the “scariest game on next-gen platforms.”
In a recent interview with IGN following the announcement of The Callisto Protocol, Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios and creator of the Dead Space series spoke about his company’s drive when creating the next-gen title. “We’re trying to make you really feel like you’re in this world. Even though it’s you escaping from this prison and you’ve got to survive these unthinkable horrors,” Schofield said. “The more you are immersed, the more you want to know about that story, the more you want to know about those little hints that we put around. You’re like, ‘What the heck is that about? What is this mystery?’”
All I can say is… that my goal and the goal of the team is to make the scariest game on next-gen platforms. so if that’s what you want to play, that’s what we’re bringing.”
As for The Callisto Protocol’s connection to PUBG, the only thing we know right now is that the events of the game take place 300 years into the future of all that battle royale goodness that’s currently happening on Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi. If the Dead Space creator intends to scare us in this game then it’ll likely happen, I’m just personally having trouble getting frightened when I picture every alien killed getting me ever closer to that delicious Chicken Dinner.
The Callisto Protocol is now in development with a release window of 2022.
