Supermassive Games, developer of Until Dawn, seems to have trademarked and produced logos for the next five Dark Pictures games.
As spotted by The Marmolade on Twitter, and first reported on by Gematsu, Supermassive Games seems to have the next five Dark Pictures Anthology games planned out.
The Marmolade spotted on EU trademark website EUIPO that names and logos have been registered for five Dark Pictures games. No potential release dates were mentioned, but each game does have a name. They are:
- Directive 8020
- The Craven Man
- Presents o Death
The horror developer has been releasing a new Dark Pictures Anthology game every year since 2019. It kicked off with Man of Medan in 2019, followed by Little Hope in 2020, and most recently with House of Ashes last year. Next up is The Devil In Me, which was teased in House of Ashes, expected to release this year.
Up until the release of Until Dawn, Supermassive Games mostly assisted Media Molecule by working on Little Big Planet DLC. But with the release of the 2015 horror game, the developer has found its niche. Supermassive’s games are often very B-movie inspired, with Until Dawn essentially being a slasher film.
In 2019, the developer spoke about how there are no plans for a sequel to Until Dawn. Clearly it found that working on an interconnected anthology series is more interesting than working on any kind of direct sequel. Or maybe the decision was really down to Sony who didn’t want to greenlight a sequel.
No release date has been set for The Devil In Me other than a 2022 window. We’ll likely get some information relatively soon. But it might be a while until we hear anything about these newly trademarked games. The original plan was for a new game to release every six months, but with one year gaps between each Dark Pictures game so far, that premise appears to be abandoned.
