The callisto protocol is an upcoming third-person survival, horror game. That is being worked on by some of the veterans behind the original dead space series. The game is being worked on by striking distance studios, which is a subsidiary of craft and inc, who are also acting as the publisher.
Now, if you’re, not sure who crafton are, they are the owners of the pubg studio, which is the studio that brought us the battle royale game player unknowns battlegrounds and the reason i mentioned.
That is because the callisto protocol will take place in the pubg universe. However, it will be in the future in the year 2320 and the game will take place in the black iron prison colony facility on callisto, one of jupiter’s moons.
The game is being developed for windows and the consoles, and in this survival horror game, you will apparently take the role of one of the prisoners at black iron prison colony during an alien invasion.
So that’s, pretty much. What we know about this game in a nutshell, now let’s, talk about the development and to give some idea of what this game is going to be like. We have to start this story back in the year 2008, with the release of the original dead space, which was a superbly terrifying survival, horror game that was released to wide acclaim.
Now the dead space series is one of those bunches of games that you go. I didn’t, know EA made games like that and is undoubtedly to my mind one of my favorite ever EA games. The first game was developed by EA redwood shores who later changed their name to visceral games.
First of all, the director is glenn scofield, who was an executive producer on the first dead space after leaving ea, he went on to found sledgehammer games, although in june 2019 scofield joined the pubg corporation and became the ceo of a new development team called striking distance Studios, however, that isn’t the only link to the dead space series with scofield himself, stating that the team behind the callisto protocol has dead space in its dna.
Apparently, when he first joined the pubg corporation and met with them, he already had the idea in his head for the callisto protocol and decided to set it on callisto that moon of jupiter, as it gave the game some kind of element of reality.
Due to the fact that many scientists believe that there is water on that moon and could be a future human colony, other people working on the game with a bit of a link to dead space, includes steve paputzis, who co-developed the dead space series and took over.
As project leader when schofield departed, there’s, also scott whitney, who is a designer on the series and christopher stone who was an animation director for dead space? In fact, scofield has stated that of the 150 employees of striking distance studios around 25 to 30 of them are former co-workers from visceral games and sledgehammer games, and while scofield also stated that he wanted to make something completely different, he said that dead space will be A natural inspiration for him and in an interview in december 2020 with ign, the director said that he wants it to be the scariest next-gen horror game.
Ever now often when people make sweeping statements like this, i’m like whatever, but when it comes to the person who gave me some pretty horrific nightmares thanks to dead space and those necromorphs, i’m a little bit more willing To believe that i may be actually genuinely terrified.
The only other thing we have about this game at the moment is that beautifully rendered cinematic trailer that we saw at the game rewards which you can currently see playing on the screens.
Finally, when we’re going to be seeing this game now, it will be coming in 2022 and considering the game got underway in 2019, and the game was announced at the end of 2020. So let’s give thoughts below in comment section.
