The release date for Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco’s The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope has been moved from its original summer release to fall 2020.
Supermassive Games CEO and Executive Producer on The Dark Pictures Anthology Pete Samuels had to say the following:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]Hi everyone,
I’m Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive and Executive Producer on The Dark Pictures Anthology. I hope that you are all safe and well. Our industry, and the entire world, have been faced with an unprecedented situation over the last few months. Sincethe COVID-19 crisis hit in March, Supermassive Games has had our 200 strong team working from home. Our priority, throughout has been the safety of our team.
We have now been working successfully at home for some time, with the entire team committed to delivering the best possible games. With that in mind it rests with me to make the unfortunate announcement that Little Hope will be delayed past the Summer release already announced, now targeting Fall 2020.
Our priority has been to keep people safe, and that includes actors and stage crews on whose talents we depend so heavily, other workforces external to our business who all help to create the games we make, and all the talented people that work within our studio. We will continue to follow government and industry body advice and will only embark on any element of development when such advice tells that it is safe to do so.
Set to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope has players assuming control of five different characters that have been trapped in a ghost town. Based on the decisions that players make, there are multiple endings and multiple scenarios that can be discovered.
The title is presented as an unfinished story, which is narrated by the omnipresent Curator (Pip Torrens of The Crown). Along the way, he requests the player’s help in completing it.
