Until Dawn Sales Exceed Expectations; Talks of Sequel

until dawnThe PS4 exclusive teen slasher horror game Until Dawn has been selling quite well. So well in fact that they are already talking about doing a sequel.

Executive Producer Pete Samuels said in an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle that “it’s definitely surpassed expectations,” though no sales figures have been announced as of yet.

Shuhei Yoshida President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, said back in September that he too did not expect it to sell so well considering how little marketing the company did for the game, describing it as a “sleeper hit” and that it will continue doing well.

Samuels said that while developer Supermassive Games are discussing Until Dawn 2, it is far too early to talk about specifics.

“We do talk internally about what Until Dawn 2 could be, as it clearly can’t be a sequel in the traditional sense, with the same characters facing the same threat, not least of which because in different stories some or all of them are already dead!” he explained. “We’ve investigated other ways we could do Until Dawn 2 but it probably is a little early to be discussing that.”

If Supermassive Games next title isn’t Until Dawn 2 (or some kind of sequel), they will definitely use what they have learned, whether it’s a horror game or something completely different.

“I think that you should expect the team to build on what we’ve done with Until Dawn, whether it’s in horror or in other genres,” he said. “We’re already working on one thing that does that, whilst exploring other avenues for our other teams in anticipation of them finishing their current projects.”
