Game publisher Skybound has recently announced that they have partnered with game developer Striking Distance Studios on upcoming video game The Callisto Protocol.
The game publisher has partnered with the makers of the upcoming survival horror game because they were sold when they saw the recent trailer. They are going to assist them together with KRAFTON Inc. to help bring the game to PCs and consoles next year. They are already excited on what comes next and hopefully would bring more information later on.
“Striking Distance Studios has one goal with The Callisto Protocol – to make one of the most terrifying games of all time,” said Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios. “Skybound Entertainment is unrivaled in the worlds of sci-fi and horror storytelling, and will be an incredible partner for KRAFTON and Striking Distance Studios as we bring the world of The Callisto Protocol to life in games and beyond.”
“The team at Striking Distance Studios are the video game industry’s best at creating blockbuster games,” said Robert Kirkman, Chairman of Skybound Entertainment and creator of The Walking Dead. “Through Skybound, The Walking Dead has expanded from its original comic book to multiple television series, books, video games, merchandise, and more, and we can’t wait to explore similar possibilities for The Callisto Protocol with Skybound’s multiplatform expertise. We’re excited to be working on this IP alongside the game’s publisher, KRAFTON.”
“KRAFTON is thrilled to join forces with Skybound Entertainment to help us bring Striking Distance Studio’s ambitious new take on survival horror to life,” said Ashley Youngsun Nam, Head of Global Business Development and Studio Management for KRAFTON, Inc. “We’ve assembled a dream team of developers and publishing talent that is poised to redefine sci-fi horror for a whole new generation of gamers around the world.”
The Callisto Protocol will launch sometime in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
