Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games is finally leaving the cozy confines of PlayStation, announcing a new series of adventure games in conjunction with Bandai Namco. The Dark Pictures is an anthology of cinematic horror games, each game featuring a new story with a new cast and a different setting.

The first of these games will be The Dark Pictures - Man of Medan, about four young Americans and their captain taking a diving trip to the rumoured location of a wrecked World War 2 ship. Before long a storm rolls in and they begin to discover something far more horrific is lurking in the ocean depths than a mere wreckage. Players step into the shoes of five protagonists, each of which can live or die depending on the player's decisions.

After a few ill-fated forays into PlayStation VR, The Dark Pictures sounds like Supermassive Games is back on firmer ground. It sounds as if this horror anthology is going to build on the template laid down by Until Dawn, each game featuring branching storylines and multiple endings, designed to be replayed to uncover the full narrative.

“We are incredibly excited to announce the Dark Pictures Anthology and the first game in the series – Man of Medan,” said Pete Samuels, CEO Supermassive Games.

“With each title being a standalone game, we have the opportunity to create a unique horror experience every time, with new stories, settings, characters and cast. As a studio we have a passion to deliver powerful cinematic horror, and we can’t wait for players to experience these new games across PS4, XBOX and PC. We have a great partner in Bandai Namco Entertainment and we look forward to working with them to help bring these terrifying tales to gamers everywhere.”

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2019.

I guessing no, seeing as it was published by Sony. I am glad that it's one of the game I played while I owned a PS4 during my brief time between gaming PCs.

Looks interesting. I enjoyed watching a LP of Until Dawn, as I don't own any of the current consoles (rather spend my toy fund on my PC). Will have to give this a chance on the PC when it comes out.

It definitely looks like they pooled some inspiration from Ghost Ship, especially the girl sneaking up behind him.

I really enjoyed Until Dawn, it's really nice knowing that I won't be forced to buy a PlayStation if I want to play these new games. Too bad RDR 2 is gonna do that anyway.

I had a blast with Until Dawn (although with a choppy framerate on PS4). Can't wait for this anthology and hopefully with smoother experiences on PC! Man of Medan, literally translated from Indonesian (Orang Medan) the name of the cargo Dutch ship that all the crew died in terrifying ways without a clear explanation in Malaka Strait. This ghost ship story is quite popular in Indonesia/Malaysia!
