Until Dawn devs considering a sequel

Until Dawn released in August, and despite some issues, its unique approach to narrative drew a lot of interest. According to a recent interview, that interest has led to better sales than expected and a possible sequel in the future.

Speaking to PlayStation Lifestyle, Supermassive Games executive producer Pete Samuels said that Until Dawn's sales have "surpassed expectations." Apparently it has sold so well that some retail outlets ran out of stock shortly following release.

"I think that you should expect the team to build on what we've done with Until Dawn, whether it's in horror or in other genres," Samuels said of the developer's future. Given that any or all of the main characters in Until Dawn could die by the game's ending, he said that "a sequel in the traditional sense" isn't really possible.

However, Samuels went on to say that they're still considering Until Dawn 2 as the next project for Supermassive. "We've investigated other ways we could do Until Dawn 2 but it probably is a little early to be discussing that," he said.
