Supermassive Games responds to Until Dawn sequel and DLC rumors.
Supermassive Games is looking to follow up the success of Until Dawn with another butterfly effect game based on mythology and history. Until Dawn’s Executive Creative Director Will Byles and Design Director Tom Heaton shared some of the scarce details today on a Reddit AMA.
When asked if the team was working on an Until Dawn sequel, they answered “Without giving too much away, we are already working on our next game, and we think and hope that Until Dawn fans will love it.” The project is still “at very early stages,” and they’re “not even thinking about an announcement yet.” Supermassive Games also could not comment on whether Sony would be publishing the game.
“Obviously we’re not going to go into specifics but like with Until Dawn we like our stories to tie into existing myths or real history,” Supermassive Games said of the game’s story. They did share that Until Dawn’s famous butterfly effect style of choice-affected narrative will be at play, saying, “We are definitely looking to build on what worked in Until Dawn, including the Butterfly Effect.”
In response to rumors that Supermassive Games was working on “an Until Dawn DLC on-rails first person shooter for PSVR titled ‘Rush of Blood’,” they answered, “We’re not able to discuss these rumours today. Sorry.” Later on in the AMA, a fan asked whether we’d see DLC similar to fan ideas for the gang returning to the mountain and possibly rescuing Josh, to which they said, “We’ve seen them too and they’re great. But we are not currently working on any DLC for Until Dawn at the moment.”
The team also said they accomplished everything they wanted in Until Dawn, but will use “Some of the feedback that we’ve had has given us ideas for the future, and we’ve had ideas since we finished the game that we would definitely like to follow up on in our next game.”
