Debuting in 7th in the United States for all of August 2015, and finishing in 2nd in the UK during its launch week, PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn has surpassed sales expectations, Executive Producer Pete Samuels told us in an exclusive interview:
PlayStation LifeStyle: How is Until Dawn doing sales wise? Is it performing as expected? Better? We saw it do well in sales data, which a lot of people were surprised with.
It’s definitely surpassed expectations. I think that’s already been stated in other interviews, and reports of significant retail outlets running out of stock during the first weeks after release kind of supports that.
As for what’s next from Supermassive Games, they’re already working on something that builds on what they did with Until Dawn:
PSLS: What should we expect from Supermassive next? Any new games in the same genre or completely different/new projects? Is Until Dawn 2 being considered at all or is it too early?
I think that you should expect the team to build on what we’ve done with Until Dawn, whether it’s in horror or in other genres. We’re already working on one thing that does that, whilst exploring other avenues for our other teams in anticipation of them finishing their current projects. We do talk internally about what Until Dawn 2 could be, as it clearly can’t be a sequel in the traditional sense, with the same characters facing the same threat, not least of which because in different stories some or all of them are already dead! We’ve investigated other ways we could do Until Dawn 2 but it probably is a little early to be discussing that.
What do you want to see from Supermassive Games? What do you want to see in Until Dawn 2 if it ever comes out?
Stay tuned to our full interview with Supermassive Games coming up next week.
