Following the July 2020 Stadia Connect event, we can confirm that Supermassive Games, developer of Until Dawn and Man of Medan, will provide an early look at their upcoming Stadia exclusive IP later this year.
After a rocky launch which failed to set the streaming subscription market on fire, Google have been steadily plugging away behind the scenes to bolster their Stadia offering. Today's digital event was noteworthy for several interesting announcements , but it was the fresh unveiling of their partnership with Supermassive Games that really caught our attention.
In an interview with the Google Stadia official blog , Pete Samuels, Managing Director at Supermassive Games (and a lovely gent we've interviewed ourselves for The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope) revealed that we can expect to catch a glimpse of their mystery project sooner than we think.
At the end of their chat, Mr. Samuels stated that "what the team is creating looks amazing and we can’t wait for people to get a glimpse of it later this year".
Exact timing of the reveal was not disclosed, but given the approaching next gen console releases, it's entirely possible that Supermassive and Stadia will attempt to bypass the noise of their arrival by holding off until late 2020.
Geoff Keighley is known for his killer scoops, so a reveal at The Game Awards 2020 is not out of the question (assuming of course it even goes ahead, given the current state of the world at large).
In the meantime, Supermassive have partnered with Bandai Namco and are due to release The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope on 30th October 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
