AFTER being introduced at last years Game Awards, the launch of The Callisto Protocol is a step closer to happening in 2022. Skybound Entertainment have partnered with Striking Distance Studios and KRAFTON, Inc to launch the survival horror game on console and PC next year. This is also the same development team behind the Dead Space franchise.
“Striking Distance Studios has one goal with The Callisto Protocol – to make one of the most terrifying games of all time,” said Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios. “Skybound Entertainment is unrivalled in the worlds of sci-fi and horror storytelling, and will be an incredible partner for KRAFTON and Striking Distance Studios as we bring the world of The Callisto Protocol to life in games and beyond.”
Set in 2320, The Callisto Protocol takes place on Jupiter’s dead moon of Callisto where nothing is what it seems. Callisto is also the home of the Black Iron Prison where something more sinister is happening within the United Jupiter Company.
“KRAFTON is thrilled to join forces with Skybound Entertainment to help us bring Striking Distance Studio’s ambitious new take on survival horror to life,” said Ashley Youngsun Nam, Head of Global Business Development and Studio Management for KRAFTON, Inc. “We’ve assembled a dream team of developers and publishing talent that is poised to redefine sci-fi horror for a whole new generation of gamers around the world.”
