It has been suggested that Until Dawn, a PlayStation 3 exclusive title last seen in 2012, has been moved to PlayStation 4. Not only that, but the title will reportedly now come with support for Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset for the console. The title was first revealed during Gamescom 2012 but has since been missing-in-action, with no word on a release date on the now-surpassed PlayStation 3.
The rumours come from Polygon, which claims that sources have told it that developer Supermassive Games is now working on PlayStation 4 and Project Morpheus. The outlet followed the story up last week, asking SCE World Wide Studios boss if there was any truth to the rumours at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).
“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.”
While not confirming the move, Yoshida did reassure that the project was still very much in development. It’s a situation likened to another supposed PlayStation 3 title, The Last Guardian, which has also been kept out of the spotlight for sometime.
Until Dawn in its original form was a first-person horror title focussed on using SCE’s PlayStation Move motion controller. The fact that Project Morpheus features support for the Move certainly seems to make it a good fit for VR. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s development and bring you all the latest.
