Until Dawn, developed by Supermassive Games, is making a comeback as Sony wants to release a new version of the game for PC and PS5 in 2024. This horror game was previously only available on PS4 and sold millions of units, but it seems like there are new plans in store for the franchise.
Reports suggest that Until Dawn 2 was in the works, but Supermassive Games’ desire to adopt a cross-platform approach clashed with Sony’s plans. Former employees revealed that The Quarry, a game that was intended as a prototype for Until Dawn 2, ended up causing a rift between Sony and Supermassive Games. The studio decided to shop the prototype around to other companies, which led to the breakdown of their relationship with Sony.
There are conflicting stories about whose decision it was to end the relationship between Sony and Supermassive Games. Some sources claim that Sony was the one who severed ties due to the multiplatform approach of The Dark Pictures saga, while others state that it was Supermassive Games’ decision to release their games on multiple platforms.
In any case, the new version of Until Dawn is set to offer several improvements. The game is being remade with Unreal Engine 5, with enhancements to the characters, environments, sound effects, and animations. The addition of a new third-person camera will allow for more exploration of improved locations with more interactions and collectibles. The developers are also expanding certain emotional parts of the story.
It’s clear that there is still interest in the Until Dawn franchise, and the new version promises to provide an authentic horror experience with enhanced visuals, improved gameplay, and expanded storytelling. The release of this new version in 2024 is eagerly anticipated by fans, and it will be interesting to see how it compares to the original.
