Is Supermassive Games Working On An Until Dawn Remake, Too?

The Supermassive Games studio, which is now working mainly on the anthology The Dark Pictures, may also be touching on an earlier work, Until Dawn.


There are plenty of rumours about remakes. There’s Resident Evil 4 (which Capcom could announce this weekend, as a countdown page could hint at it…), or The Last of Us, but let’s not forget Knights of the Old Republic, or the officially confirmed Gothic remake (although the alpha version they revealed best be forgotten as soon as possible). But to this list, we can add another name, Until Dawn, which was released in August 2015 for the PlayStation 4 and used Guerrilla Games’ Decima engine.

AccountNGT, who we’ve heard from mainly about Quantic Dream rumours lately, has now posted on Twitter on a different subject. “From what I’ve heard from several separate sources, in addition to their new games, Supermassive Games is reportedly working on a remake of Until Dawn for some time that will be coming to current-gen consoles. I will try to find out more about this potential project,” the leaker wrote. It’s worth noting that he used the plural, as the game’s publisher was Sony Interactive Entertainment…

Current-gen consoles? The PlayStation 5 would be understandable, as Until Dawn was a Sony-exclusive property until now. Still, the use of the plural makes the Xbox Series a viable target platform, and from there, it would be a small leap for the studio to make the PC version so that it could be a genuinely multiplatform remake of the now seven-year-old game. The studio has never wanted to make a sequel, as the choices made in their game make it a less than favourable idea to make an Until Dawn 2, as it would require a fixed sequence of events to occur in the first part, and they wouldn’t be able to make a proper sequel for too many variations. We cannot criticise this.

However, we should point out that this is, of course, not official yet. As Sony currently only has MLB: The Show, the annual American baseball league game adaptation as a multiplatform IP on Xbox, we’re a little dubious…
