Supermassive Games’ frustratingly frigid PlayStation 3 exclusive Until Dawn is set to keep covered up until the New Year, studio gaffer Pete Samuels has announced. There were rumours – yet again – earlier this week that the PlayStation Move powered title had been cancelled, but apparently that’s absolutely not the case. We strongly suspect that it’s switched systems at this point, though.

“Until Dawn is most definitely not cancelled and we are still developing it,” the abovementioned executive told VG247 as part of an email exchange. “Not only that, but we’re really excited about what we’re creating and can’t wait to tell more and show more sometime soon. I understand that the silence has been frustrating for those people who have been looking out for more details.”

Samuels would confirm that the game’s no longer due out in 2013 – but with only a few weeks left in the year, we’re not particularly surprised by that revelation. For those out of the loop, the teen slasher was announced alongside Tearaway at GamesCom 2012, and promised a campy survival horror experience packed with cheap scares and even cheaper physical thrills. We’re still looking forward to it.
