Bloober Team just teased that they are working on a yet unnamed game set in the Layer of Fear universe, as well as two more unannounced AAA titles

Bloober Team's latest project announcement is a peek behind the easel at the studio's return to the world of Layers of Fear. We don't have a bunch of information about the new, yet-to-be-titled project, except that it is an Unreal Engine 5 teaser trailer and it looks pretty amazing.

The inaugural Layers of Fear game was released back in 2016 to some high praise for its unique take on the first-person psychological horror experience told from the point of view of a painter obsessively trying to finish his Magnum Opus, all cost be damned. The title played a big role in re-focusing the studio's art and game making direction and had a significant impact on the genre itself. A DLC expansion titled Inheritance served to continue the story of the first Layers of Fear.

An indirect sequel, Layers of Fear 2, was released in 2019. This one told the story of a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of a despotic director to star in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.

"Layers of Fear was a breakthrough project for us—it paved the path for Bloober Team and began our rapid growth, allowing us to explore more stories we’ve wanted to tell," said Piotr Babiebo, Bloober Team CEO. "I’m really glad we’re coming back to this world, wiser and more experienced. For me, it’s important that we make this announcement during the Tokyo Games Show, as for many of us Japan is the cradle of psychological horror games. As a studio, we also have two other projects in the works, one in production and one in pre-production."

As if one teaser trailer wasn't enough, Bloober Team also shared the news that they are working on two, as of yet unannounced, AAA titles.
