Focus Home Interactive decided to take an entirely different approach to the Call of Cthulhu game, which was announced back in 2014. If we only mention that the publisher will work together with another developer, then it’s already a sign of change.
So far, we knew that Frogwares (who will have their latest Sherlock Holmes game out by the end of May) were working on Call of Cthulhu. However, the adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s story has been handed over to the French developer team Cyanide Studios instead. Their name might be familiar to you if you played Game of Thrones, Pro Cycling Manager or Styx: Master of Shadows. Technologically, the Cthulhu game will use Unreal Engine 4, and it should be available in 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Cthulhu’s story turns 90 this summer – can you believe it that Lovecraft wrote it in the summer of 1926? If the game is going to be as good as the original novel, we should be in for a good scare.
