Supermassive Games has revealed the projects the studio will work on following the release of The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me later this year.

At Gamescom 2022, Supermassive Games game director Tom Heaton explained that the developer is more "ambitious" than ever given that more than 300 people are currently working at the Guildford-based studio. He also reconfirmed that The Devil In Me will conclude the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology, which includes 2019's Man of Medan, 2020's Little Hope, and 2021's House of Ashes.

"The second season is coming. It's very exciting. People work there in desktops right now, on these games, on many of these games. Because we do them well first," Heaton said.

"We always planned to play eight games. We mixed those games up a bit. We made some small changes. And the idea is that after doing four, we're going to review what we've accomplished, what's working, and what needs to be renewed, to make sure we're not resting on our laurels. me. I think you'll see some new things in season two. Basically, you'll find games that are mostly Dark Picture games.

The previous three installments in The Dark Pictures Anthology have lasted between four and a half to five hours, though Heaton says The Devil in Me should be seven hours long. The head of the Supermassive Games studio, Dan McDonald went on to explain what the plan was then. "There's a great team for Game 5, and Game 6 is in the design stage. After that, Game 7 and Game 8, we'll move on. Not much has happened to those guys at the moment."

"When Tom's team is done, it's going to start freestyle and move on to other titles. We have this continuum in driving and commuting, and people are changing, 'OK, they want to participate. into the game of serial killers, so they're in Tom's game. They want to do the next thing, so they can get in. '"

There's also been a hint from Heaton that the studio might be experimenting outside of the horror genre, though nothing has been officially confirmed, and "all Supermassive Games is doing right now is [The] Dark [Pictures] Anthology]".

The last developer release outside of horror was 2018's Bravo Team for PlayStation VR, so could we see something similar for PSVR 2? With Sony now confirming the release window for the device, we could hear something in the coming months. We'll just have to wait and see.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me will launch on November 18, 2022, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
