Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games has trademarked a title called Shattered State, and with Gamescom 2018 right around the corner, we’d bank on some kind of reveal coinciding with the Cologne-based convention next week. Interestingly, the Guildford-based studio filed the trademark itself, suggesting that it won’t be published by Sony like the vast majority of its portfolio. The team talked about going multiformat a few years ago.
Of course, the studio has been reasonably busy since its PlayStation 4 exclusive schlock horror surprised everyone by turning out to be pretty good: it’s worked on a bunch of smaller-scale experiences, like PlayStation VR shooter Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and PlayLink murder mystery Hidden Agenda. Unfortunately, its two big titles this year – The Inpatient and Bravo Team – both disappointed critically, so let’s hope this is a return to form.
