Until Dawn Developer Supermassive Games “Keen” to Go Multiplatform
While Supermassive Games’ last game on a PlayStation platform (Until Dawn) was a massive success, it seems the studio will soon end being a PlayStation-exclusive studio.
In an interview, Managing Director Pete Samuels had the the following to say:
We’ve worked closely with Sony for as long as the studio has been around, so the past eight years…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.
Now, before anyone brings out the torches and whatnot, bear in mind that Supermassive still has a few PlayStation VR games in development; chief of which is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. And if you think about it, Supermassive going multi-platform means its games will reach a wider audience, which should translate to more sales, which should mean the studio will continue to make games. Win-win, right?
