The Callisto Protocol revealed at The Game Awards

A brand new horror game is coming from the creators of Dead Space.


Remember back in 2008 when Dead Space came out and shook the horror game community to its core? Well the team behind that title are back with their latest horror game, The Callisto Protocol. This brand new IP looks to be one truly terrifying game. Take a look at the trailer below.

Announced during The Game Awards 2020, The Callisto Protocol comes from the mind of Glen Schofield, the creator of Dead Space. It’s not just a one-man job though, as the game is currently in development by Striking Distance Studios.

As for what type of game The Callisto Protocol aims to be, it’s a third-person horror game focused on a singleplayer experience. Not a whole lot is revealed in the trailer, but what we can gather is that the horrific events take place in, or start within, some kind of sci-fi prison.

Schofield’s goal with The Callisto Protocol is to make it the scariest game ever. If there’s one man and a team up to the job, it’s Schofield and his team. We can’t wait to hear and see more about this game, and with a release date schedule for 2022, there’s plenty of time for that to happen.

The Callisto Protocol is expected to release in 2022 and will launch on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, as well as PC.
