We'd always assumed, following the surprise commercial success of Until Dawn, that Sony would have signed up a sequel straight away – but it sounds like developer Supermassive Games has other plans. Despite being one of the Japanese giant's closer partners, the developer has expressed interest in breaking away from the platform holder, as it eyes multiformat projects instead.
"We've worked closely with Sony for as long as the studio has been around, so the past eight years," managing director Pete Samuels told MCV. "I've loved it, they are great to work with and we have a strong relationship with them. I think a lot of the work we do with them aligns well with what we want to do and where we want to go. But yes, we are an independent studio and we are keen, going forward, to bring our games to wider audiences than we have in the past. That's what we are all about right now, and it's an exciting time for us."
The BAFTA awarding winning outfit is working on two more PlayStation exclusive projects right now: rails shooter spin-off Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Tumble VR – both of which for PlayStation VR. But beyond that it looks like it'll be working on multiplatform projects, which would rule a full-scale Until Dawn sequel out, as Sony owns the brand. A colossal shame.
