Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn didn’t seem like it would be a great success, yet here we are quite some time later, lamenting over the possibility that a sequel may not happen for a long time.
It always seemed like a no-brainer after the surprise success of the teen-horror flick/game that Sony would push forward with a sequel to keep the east money rolling in, but that doesn’t look to be happening anytime soon. The game’s developer, Supermassive Games, has seemingly distanced itself away from the Japanese console giant in favour of reaching a wider audience by going multiplatform.
Speaking with MCV, Pete Samuels, managing director, said: “I’ve loved it, they are great to work with and we have a strong relationship with them. I think a lot of the work we do with them aligns well with what we want to do and where we want to go. But yes, we are an independent studio and we are keen, going forward, to bring our games to wider audiences than we have in the past. That’s what we are all about right now, and it’s an exciting time for us.”
Well bugger. At least there’s still the Until Dawn: Rush of Blood coming to PlayStation VR. Perhaps the studio will return to the franchise at a future date, then.
