Man of Medan the First of Five Dark Pictures Games in Active Development

Man of Medan

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.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
