2015’s PlayStation 4 match Until Dawn was generally popular by critics and it sold better than programmer Supermassive anticipated. The studio said it had thoughts about Until Dawn two, but it never occurred.
Instead, Supermassive developed a spinoff, Rush of Blood, and a prequel called The Inpatient. But will Supermassive ever make Until Dawn 2?
It seems unlikely. Supermassive CEO and executive producer Pete Samuels advised Game Informer said the team wishes to tell new stories, and it’s doing exactly that with its new game Man of Medan, that is part of this multi-title Dark Films anthology.
“After Until Dawn, [many] started to ask a sequel, and it still happens now, so we know there’s a fanbase that likes this kind of thing,” he said. “A lot of [creating the anthology] is all about our desire to function that fanbase out of our standpoint and to serve ourselves in that which we love to do, which is do more stories and characters, and do it more frequently than one or 2 every few years,” he added. Game manager Tom Heaton said working with the anthology series is much more exciting as it gives the studio more liberty and opportunity to take on a new subject with fresh characters each time. “You’re not tied to historic characters you have to use,”
he explained. There may be many distinct endings. This presents an issue for Until Dawn if it were to have the same personalities, of course. “When we had been making sequels, we don’t know who survived,” manufacturer Dan McDonald said. “I mean we could probably work it out from your game save, but we don’t want to make a sequel to that.
We want to make a different story with various men and women. ” Person of Medan follows a set of four young Americans along with the boat captain from the South Pacific to a diving trip in search of a World War II-era wreck. This does goes to plan, and the four confront “unimaginable stress and terror” because they attempt to escape the boat. As with Until now, players will make choices that decide the fates of the main characters.
