Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games had reportedly cancelled development of its survival horror game. Managing director Pete Samuels has told VG247 that this is not the case and the team will have more to share in the new year.
I got in touch with Samuels to clarify the original story below, and as it happens, Until Dawn is not cancelled. He told me in an email, “Until Dawn is most definitely not cancelled and we are still developing it. Not only that, but we’re really excited about what we’re creating and can’t wait to tell more and show more sometime soon. I understand that the silence has been frustrating for those people who have been looking out for more details.
“It’s clearly not planned to be a 2013 release any longer and I’m hoping and expecting to be able to say more in the new year, but that’s really all I’m able to say right now.”
There you go folks, clarity at long last.
It follows Supermassive stating that development of Until Dawn is going “really well”. That was back in November.
Now, AGB has posted a screen grab of this Amazon customer service email, that states, “We recently learned that the manufacturer of Until Dawn – PlayStation 3 cancelled this release and it will not be available for purchase. As a result, we’ve cancelled the item from your pre-order and you have not been charged.”
Had development of Until Dawn ceased or has it moved to PS4? What do you think?
