MD of Until Dawn creator says studio is 'all about' diversifying following nearly a decade of single-platform development

Supermassive Games says it wants to end its status as a PlayStation-exclusive studio.

The firm has a strong relationship with Sony, which has commissioned most of the developer's titles. The most recent was the BAFTA-winning horror game Until Dawn.

“We’ve worked closely with Sony for as long as the studio has been around, so the past eight years,” MD Pete Samuels told Develop sister site MCV. “I’ve loved it, they are great to work with and we have a strong relationship with them.

"But yes, we are an independent studio and we are keen, going forward, to bring our games to wider audiences than we have in the past. That’s what we are all about right now, and it’s an exciting time for us.”

Supermassive remains committed to PlayStation, however. The firm’s next two games – Tumble VR and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood – are exclusive to PlayStation VR and will launch alongside the hardware.
