Supermassive Games introduced the interactive-horrific universe of Until Dawn to the masses in 2014. Since then, It has become a critically acclaimed PS4 title and has even spawned two PSVR spin-offs. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood & The Inpatient. With a full backstory to the origin and present day events, what’s next?
Supermassive announced Men of Medan in 2018, the first of many titles to spawn from The Dark Pictures Anthology. With the first installment of The Dark Pictures releasing this summer, Supermassive has all hands on deck introducing the world to a new horrifying era of stories. In a recent interview with Gameinformer, Supermassive discussed why they haven’t pushed out a sequel for their original horror franchise and why a Until Dawn sequel may not be likely to happen anytime soon. Check out excerpt from the interview below.
“After Until Dawn, [many] started to request a sequel, and it still happens today, so we know there is a fanbase that likes this kind of thing.”
“A lot of [creating the anthology] is about our desire to serve that fanbase from our perspective and to serve us ourselves in what we love to do, which is do more stories and characters, and do it more frequently than one or two every few years.”
“On an anthology, it’s a great opportunity to wrestle with a new subject, a new genre, and with characters that you can develop specifically for that story. You’re not tied to historical characters that you have to use.”
“If we were making sequels, we don’t know who survived. I mean we could probably work it out from your game save, but we don’t want to make a sequel to that. We want to make a different story with different people.”
