“We’re Not Working on Until Dawn 2 at the Moment,” Says Supermassive Games
Supermassive Games, which is working on Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Tumble VR for PlayStation VR launch, has already expressed their interest in going multi-platform, following a close relationship with Sony. As Managing Director Pete Samuels told Games Industry though, they aren’t leaving Sony behind:
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.
Following the success of last year’s Until Dawn (it beat sales expectations in two months), Supermassive was already internally discussing Until Dawn 2. However, eight months later, it isn’t one of the things they’re working on:
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.
Whether or not it’s in the horror genre, Samuels says they want to “push to bring those experiences, those cinematic storytelling narrative-driven games,” to other platforms. “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,” he later added. “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.”
