Until Dawn 2 May Already Be In Development
Three years ago, Until Dawn created quite a stir with a stellar cast and a terrifying and unique monster. Fans of the horror game hoped for more, but developer Supermassive Games remained relatively quiet about a potential sequel. However, a new interview stoked rumors that development is under way for a follow up title.
In an interview with 4PDA, managing director Pete Samuels discussed the studio’s next game, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan. Unlike Until Dawn, the next title will arrive on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The non-exclusivity sparked questions about the studio’s future working with Sony. Samuels put those fears to rest and assured players that their relationship remained strong.
“Well, our relationship with Sony is still excellent. We are working on several unannounced PlayStation exclusives. True, it is impossible to talk about them in detail. In general, I really wanted to present our work to the widest possible audience. That is, The Dark Pictures needs to be released on several platforms.”
Given the success of Until Dawn, odds say that one of those exclusives is a sequel or a prequel. They know that the universe remains filled with untapped potential, as shown by last year’s VR prequel, The Inpatient. Whether or not they manage to bring back the full cast remains to be seen. Rami Malek’s star continues to rise, so he will likely be the hardest actor to bring back. Considering his importance to the story, that could present challenges for the developer.
It’s also difficult to gauge Supermassive’s priorities. The Dark Pictures is an anthology, meaning more titles should follow if Man of Medan becomes a success. Additionally, the company recently filed a trademark for Shattered State but provided no further details. Lastly, they obviously have multiple PS4 exclusives in the works with no guarantee that Until Dawn 2 tops the list. We will keep you updated on this story as more information becomes available.
The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2019.
