Virtuos, the same game developer working on the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, could also be developing a PC port of the PlayStation-exclusive Until Dawn.
Reddit user u/KekanKok recently shared a LinkedIn profile on the r/GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit showing that Virtuos could be working on a PC port for Until Dawn. The profile’s owner, a former Virtuos employee named Naceri Lu, listed they were reportedly working with Virtuos to develop a Until Dawn PC port from December 2019 until their departure in March 2020.
Interestingly, the date Lu listed means that Virtuos has been developing a PC port for Until Dawn for around four years – the same amount of time Naughty Dog needed to remake The Last of Us Part 1. It is unclear if Virtuos is working on either just a PC port or a PC port and remake. However, with the game developer working on the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake and its number of offices and employees, it could be speculated that Virtuos is doing both simultaneously.
Whether Virtuos is working on a Until Dawn PC port and/or remake is still anyone’s guess; Supermassive Games, the company behind the game, has yet to announce such a project officially. However, Supermassive may do so in the now-confirmed Sony State of Play on January 31.
Gamers may recall that Supermassive Games will supposedly announce a Until Dawn remaster in the upcoming event, though Sony has yet to mention what games the 40-minute event will showcase. Nevertheless, it is advisable for Until Dawn fans to take such rumors with a grain of salt until Supermassive or Sony officially says anything about either.
Either way, news about an upcoming PC port and a possible remake could be exciting news for Until Dawn fans, especially after almost a decade since its original release date. Until Dawn is a choose-your-own horror adventure game designed as a slasher flick wherein players take control of several characters to uncover what is happening behind the scenes and survive until dawn or die trying.
While QTE-heavy, Until Dawn became a hit in the gaming community thanks to the many streamers and content creators playing and featuring it in their videos. In fact, Shuhei Yoshida, the former President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, called the game a “sleeper hit,” per IGN.
Until Dawn’s success led to Supermassive Games’ development of The Dark Pictures Anthology, which consists of four games with a similar structure to Until Dawn. These games are Man of Medan, Little Hope, The Devil in Me, and House of Ashes, each being a successful game of their own.
With a Until Dawn movie adaptation in the works (per Collider), Supermassive may likely utilize the upcoming Sony State of Play to announce the remake and PC port of Until Dawn to generate buzz for the movie. Whether the company will do so in the event is yet to be seen.
