The Callisto Protocol will be released in the second half of 2022, publishers call it a horror “AAAA game”
KRAFTON says it will be a game of "top quality"
Before the end of the year, KRAFTON will also release a turn-based strategy game from the makers of Subnautica.
The Korean company, which also owns the PUBG franchise, shared its plans for 2022 in a quarterly report, where it also announced its record revenue for a three-month period. The publisher confirmed that somewhere in the second half of the year they are going to release two major games from their Western studios.
Striking Distance’s The Callisto Protocol, which is being spearheaded by Dead Space creator Glen Scofield, doesn’t appear to be porting yet. KRAFTON says it will be a game of “top quality” with “outstanding” horror elements and action mechanics.
At the same time, the company positions the release as an “AAAA game” – before that, for example, Ubisoft employees classified their Skull & Bones and Beyond Good & Evil 2 in the same class of “ultra-high-budget” video games.
In addition, KRAFTON will be releasing a turn-based strategy game from Unknown Worlds, currently known under the working title Project M. In 2022, it will be released only in early access.
In an investor presentation, it is described as a sci-fi game for PC and mobile devices with “unique” mechanics that are “easy to learn but hard to master”. The publishers claim that users should be interested not only in playing themselves, but also in watching others play the game.
Most likely, details about both titles are planned to be revealed in the near future. On May 24, the next issue of Game Informer magazine will be released, which will devote a lot of material to The Callisto Protocol – earlier the editors of the publication published the first screenshot.
