Gamesindustry.biz recently interviewed Supermassive Games managing director, who said the developer is moving on to new projects. Unfortunately, that means Supermassive isn’t heading up Until Dawn 2. Until Dawn was a sleeper hit for the PlayStation 4 and it got good reviews, so it wouldn’t be surprising that fans want to see a sequel. Unfortunately that doesn’t appear to be in the cards.
Samuels stated, “There’s a lot of speculation about what we’re doing and what we’re working on right now. We’re not working on Until Dawn 2 at the moment. We’re working on other things.”
He added that the studio wants to work on making more games for more platforms as its exclusive publishing deal with Sony Computer Entertainment has expired. Samuels also stated: “We have such a great relationship with Sony. We want to continue to work with Sony, and we are continuing to work with Sony on lots of things. There’s no concern or resentment or any bad feeling. They’re a really important publisher for us, and I hope and expect that they’ll continue to be that. We really want to push to bring those experiences, those cinematic storytelling narrative-driven games, be it horror or not, to other platforms as well.”
Samuels went on that Supermassive Games plants to develop new properties, and the company wants to push what it was able to accomplish with Until Dawn. He continued: “It seems that the next logical step for us now is to broaden that out into similar experiences, but with differences depending on the IP, the publisher, the platform, so on. That’s what we want, and that’s what we’re really focused on now…to take what we did with Until Dawn and push that even further.”
Other titles Supermassive Games worked on included a supporting role on titles such as LittleBigPlanet and Killzone.
