Fatal Frame series producer Keisuke Kikuchi has teased a potential 20th-anniversary celebration of the Fatal Frame in his latest interview with the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.

Horror fans probably remember Fatal Frame as one of the scariest games from the PlayStation 2 era. Sadly, the last game in the series was released exclusively for Nintendo Wii back in 2014, and since then, the fans of the franchise have been waiting to hear more about Koei Tecmo's plans for this beloved title.

Over the years, we only heard rumours about the new instalments and the creators of the series said a couple of times that the franchise is certainly not dead. In the latest interview with the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Fatal Frame producer Keisuke Kikuchi teased something special for the game's 20th anniversary, which is happening this year.

 When asked what is he planning and hoping to achieve in 2021, Keisuke responded

"2020 was a year where things that were normal were no longer normal. I’d like to look at what’s important and what I love once more, and create a game with a fresh perspective. 2021 is also the 20th anniversary of the Fatal Frame series, so I’d like to celebrate it in some way if possible."

Additionally, he also confirmed that the team is currently working on new games, which should be announced very soon. 

"We’re working hard to announce some titles by spring. We’re developing a wide range of titles, from those currently under adjustment to those with pending names."

And while this does indeed sound interesting, and it may suggest that a new Fatal Frame game is in development, don't get your hopes up just yet, at least until we get an official confirmation.
