Supermassive Games has revealed that it already has four Dark Pictures Anthology games in development to follow Man of Medan later this year, as well as plans for more.
Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Supermassive CEO and executive producer Pete Samuels said, “The first three [games] are well underway and the fourth and fifth are fairly well advanced from a narrative perspective.” He added that the team is already planning at least three more to follow.
Samuels also outlined a rough release schedule, saying that two entries should launch within any twelve-month window, suggesting that The Dark Pictures Anthology is a long-term venture for the team.
While all of the games will take place in the same universe, they will each bear unique characters, stories, themes, and horror subgenres. For Man of Medan, those genre cues will be ones “that you’d recognise from the home invasion subgenre, and some much more supernatural—even sci-fi horror.”
Furthermore, fans of the developer’s previous narrative horror game Until Dawn should be pleased, as Man of Medan is being developed by much the same team.
Man of Medan was recently announced for an August 30 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. One of the follow-ups may be called House of Ashes, though that is not yet confirmed.
