Signs Of Life Around Alone In The Dark?

A trusted leaker has published a tweet that is quite suggestive of Alone in the Dark…


The user, who goes by the Twitter handle The Snitch, has made several accurate predictions: they weren’t wrong about Sony’s State of Play, Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest (who is also behind The Game Awards), and Microsoft’s E3 replacement Xbox Showcase. They were also accurate about the Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII remaster before the announcement and precise about the release date for God of War: Ragnarok.

He quoted from the 2005 film Alone in the Dark (which starred Christian Slater, Tara Reid and Stephen Dorff), which was a flop, to say the least when he wrote: “Being afraid of the dark is what keeps most of us alive”. It is a reference to the franchise, and the question is what exactly can come of it. What is certain, however, is that Alone in the Dark has been licensed to the Embracer Group via THQ Nordic since 2018.

This week, THQ Nordic is preparing for its E3 replacement broadcast, and there could be the talk of an announcement during the show, so the horror genre IP could get some form of resurrection. Who knows what might be in the pipeline? The franchise’s most recent game to date was the co-operative, lousy Alone in the Dark: Illumination, released for PC in 2015, and before that, 2008’s Alone in the Dark (Eden Games, Xbox 360, PC; also the PlayStation 3 version, subtitled Inferno; Hydravision Entertainment’s PS2 and Wii game is different). It wasn’t well-received either, but it was financially successful for the IP giant Atari.

Either a new game in the series is in the works, or 2008’s Alone in the Dark could get a revamp (as it’s common around THQ Nordic to test interest before developing a new game). Of course, this is not yet official.
