Bandai Namco announced that the Suppermassive-developed horror adventure The Dark Pictures: Little Hope, will be delayed PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam to a Fall 2020 release.
Supermassive’s CEO and Executive Producer on The Dark Pictures Anthology, Pete Samuels shares a latter explaining the situation below:
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.
The Dark Pictures: Little Hope continues the horror adventure elements of the series as players are tasked with doing whatever they can to stay alive through a nightmare. During gameplay, players will make choices that affect the relationship of the characters and their chances of survival. The gameplay also encourages exploration as players look for clues and piece together the mystery, which isn’t also helpful in surviving a sudden supernatural attack. Still, at least you get to learn more about killing ghosts.
