2020 is already lined up to be a banner year for video games. Cyberpunk 2077, Avengers, Doom: Eternal, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Animal Crossing: New Horizons… Too many games in too little time. The horror scene, however, is looking smaller in comparison. Here are the upcoming horror games we are most anticipating in 2020.
A lot of the horror games we can expect next year are sequels, and, with some, we are still not really sure what to expect.
Those that are coming in 2020 are exciting, though. They are the few, but they are the proud, and we are looking forward to getting our horror fix from these games in the coming months.
The Dark Pictures: Little Hope
The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is still fresh in our minds, and there is a new game already on the horizon. That is the glory of the anthology; we should be getting new, smaller cinematic horror games in this series twice a year.
Since Man of Medan released in August, it’s safe to assume (based on the twice a year model), that another Dark Pictures game will release in the next few months, and maybe another later in the year.
The next game in the series, Little Hope, was teased in a secret trailer inside Man of Medan. It stars Will Poulter (of Midsommar and Bandersnatch fame), and looks to be set in the creepy town of, you guessed it, Little Hope. Little else is known other than that it will release in 2020. You can check the trailer out for yourself here.
So, we can expect at least one Dark Pictures game next year, maybe even two. Here’s hoping for more cinematic horror in 2020.
