Supermassive Games has been in the game development business for eight years and for the most part, during that span of time the studio had released Sony exclusives. These ranged from LittleBigPlanet, Killzone HD, and most recently, the award-winning horror title Until Dawn. However, the studio is now interested in reaching a wider audience by going multiplatform for future video game titles.
Pete Samuels, executive producer for Supermassive games, spoke with MCV on the future of the development studio. According to Samuels, the relationship with Sony has been great though he views Supermassive Games as an independent studio and it was time to help gain a wider audience by bringing their video games to more consoles.
“I think a lot of the work we do with them (Sony) aligns well with what we want to do and where we want to go. But yes, we are an independent studio and we are keen, going forward, to bring our games to wider audiences than we have in the past. That’s what we are all about right now, and it’s an exciting time for us.”
With that said, Supermassive Games latest two title announcements are VR related. Coming out from the studio with an unannounced release date is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and Tumble VR, both titles being released through PlayStation VR.
Although, it was also made mention within the interview that Supermassive Games are actively developing other video game titles that have similarities with Until Dawn outside of VR. Perhaps they will be in the realm of horror genre or a strong narrative driven adventure.
