Supermassive Games have unearthed themselves a gem with their recent release, Until Dawn. The horror game, which focused heavily on branching narrative paths and player choice, has even surpassed the expectations of its developers. In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle, executive producer Pete Samuels said:
“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.”
“It’s definitely surpassed expectations”
When asked about the possibility of Until Dawn 2, Samuels didn’t dismiss the idea.
“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.”
Until Dawn has proven to be many people’s surprise game of the year so far – we really liked it, too, praising its setting, its characters, and its wonderfully deep narrative paths.
