When it comes to engaging players, horror games tend to evoke the most emotion. When that can be said for any medium truly, games tend to add a layer of immersion with the interactive nature of the experience. However, when it comes to Polish developer Bloober Team, it is to inch away from horror moving forward.

In a recent interview with Engadget, founder Piotr Babieno said “We decided that our next titles should be much more mass-market oriented. We’d like to talk with more people. We’d like to deliver our ideas, with our DNA, not by environment or storytelling, but by action. […] But we decided that there was a ceiling that we couldn’t break if we did not deliver something fresh, something new.”

From a recent press release from Bloober Team, the firm has officially signed on with Skybound Entertainment to work on a new project based on one of the publisher’s IPs. Skybound is notable for properties including The Walking Dead, Invincible, and Murder falcon.

“This project is the next step in the 2nd party strategy, where we work with external partners to provide our horror know-how. These are not titles that are only supposed to give us financial profit, but are the next steps in achieving our strategy by the end of 2027,” Babieno writes in the press release. Most surprising is the expectation not to be a financial hit for the team as it explores new territories from its prior projects.

Currently, Bloober Team is still working on another partnered project over at Konami, Silent Hill 2 Remake. Originally revealed back in fall 2022, there has been little word as to when it is expected to launch on PlayStation 5. You can read the full report by heading here.
