The head of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) has confirmed that Until Dawn, the long-delayed survival horror title for PlayStation 3, is still in development.
Speaking with Polygon at GDC 2014 last week, Shuhei Yoshida revealed that the game is still coming, though wouldn’t divulge whether or not it had shifted development to the PlayStation 4.
In addition, Yoshida-san also commented on supposed rumors that the PlayStation Move-compatible horror romp is now being considered for Project Morpheus.
“That would be very interesting, because it's a horror game, and the people are tweeting to me, ‘I want to play Outlast in Morpheus,'" he said. "I think that's, in terms of genre, that's a really good fit. If you really want to make serious games for Morpheus, the game design would be really, really different."
Polygon then asked outright if the game was still in the works, to which the exec responded:
"Yes. "Yes, it's in development."
Until Dawn was first announced at Gamescom 2012, and takes the form of a teen-based horror not unlike Hollywood slashers such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.
The game takes place in a remote location, where a number of students visit the scene of the disappearance of a group of friends some years before. However, in typical teen fashion, the killings soon begin, and it’s up to you to discover who is slowly picking off your group by playing from the perspective of multiple characters.
Until Dawn is said to utilize PlayStation Move to its full potential, with gamers aiming the device as a flashlight and means of navigation through the darkness.
Sony had initially set a release date of 2013 for the project, before the game was delayed for reasons unknown. Amazon reported last December that the game had been canceled.
