The “definitely not cancelled” survival horror game from developer Supermassive Games is still very much in development and, according to a new rumor, the project is being turned into a title for Sony’s newly unveiled Project Morpheus VR headset. This means we likely won’t see it for awhile, since Morpheus is still a ways off. On the plus side, virtual reality is far more exciting and immersive than Move could ever hope to be, so if this proves true, it’s a smart move.
This potentially very exciting news comes from a report at Polygon, which claims an anonymous source broke the news.
For the unfamiliar, Until Dawn is a game inspired by the teen slasher subgenre of films. It follows a group of teens who decide to spend the night in a cabin on the anniversary of the death of one of their friends, but, this being a horror game, their solemn night of remembrance is interrupted by the arrival of a murderous psychopath.
Polygon had the chance to sit down with Shuhei Yoshida head honcho at Sony World Wide Studios at GDC earlier this month. When asked about the game’s status, Yoshida confirmed it hasn’t been cancelled and that, regarding its rumored move to Project Morpheus, that it “would be very interesting, because it’s a horror game, and the people are tweeting to me, ‘I want to play Outlast in Morpheus.’ I think that’s, in terms of genre, that’s a really good fit. If you really want to make serious games for Morpheus, the game design would be really, really different.”
So Until Dawn is still coming. We just need to be patient.
