Supermassive Games’ next title might be ditching its teen aspect, but promises to be a quarry-sized horror.
During an interview with VGC, Supermassive Games director, Will Byles teased fans about what the future may hold for the studio. Ever since the release of Until Dawn for the PS4 in 2015, Supermassive’s “interactive drama horror” has been a winning formula.
Supermassive has enjoyed much success
For the most part, since Until Dawn, Supermassive Games has been extremely successful with its teen horror theme. However, that might change in an upcoming release.
Is this the end of teen horror from Supermassive?
“We’ve started working on [the next game]. I can’t really tell you very much at all about it, but we have started. Again, it’s the same sort of horror genre, we’re sticking to that,” teased Byles.
“It’s equivalent in size to The Quarry… and that’s about as much as I can say without giving too much away.
What direction will Supermassive Games take?
Byles continued: “Potentially we might be a little bit like… I don’t know how far we can stretch the teen horror thing out further because especially when we try to stir it up, the number of surprises you can add to that becomes limited.”
Byles went on to explain that while the studio might step away from the teen theme, the upcoming game is “still very much classic horror.” He then added that the game should be released in 2025 or 2026.
The Devil in Me releases this November
Following the launch of The Devil in Me this November, it will be interesting to see if that will be the studio’s last game until 2025/26. Whether we’ll get a season two of The Dark Pictures Anthology in-between remains to be seen.
