The Polish studio has just come out of the development of The Medium , a horror game available for PC and Xbox Series X | S also on Xbox Game Pass.
Nevertheless, there is already another construction site open at the Layers of Fear and Observer house, as explained by Babieno.
«We have been working for over a year on another gaming project, another horror IP , and we are doing it with a very famous video game publisher », revealed.
« I can’t tell you who. I can’t tell you what the project is , but I’m pretty sure that when people understand we’re working on it, they’ll be very excited. “
Babieno added that the European software house is aiming to expand its niche and that is why «our future projects will not necessarily be horror games. They could be called thriller
«If you think of Resident Evil 8, Hellblade 2 , even in some ways The Last of Us … This is the ‘area we would like to be in ».
The development team has already worked on licensed titles such as Blair Witch but in this case it is interesting to note that Babieno explicitly referred to a gaming publisher and not to an entertainment label in a general sense.
