Man of Medan Developer Already Working on the Fifth Game In Its Dark Pictures Anthology

Supermassive Games pushing ahead with its new interactive version of Tales From the Crypt.

Man of Medan is still a month away from release, but Supermassive Games is already pushing ahead on more entries. According to series producer Dan McDonald, multiple games in its The Dark Pictures Anthology are currently in varying stages of production.

"The fifth one is being worked on right now," McDonalds tells USgamer. "All of them are going to have the shared story aspect of multiplayer."

The development is part of what Supermassive Games will be a new horror anthology—a sort of interactive version of Night Gallery or Tales from the Crypt. It features a mysterious Englishman in the role of the Cryptkeeper, who serves to introduce each story and provide comment on how you're doing throughout.

Man of Medan is the first entry in the series, featuring a crew of unwitting treasure hunters and pirates who find their way on to a World War II ghost ship. Like Supermassive's previous effort, Until Dawn, it leans heavily on branching choices and multiple endings for its appeal. It will also have online multiplayer co-op play, which Supermassive Games revealed today.

Supermassive Games clearly has high hopes for this series after the success of Until Dawn. It already has some 39 subgenres mapped out that it can potentially explore with The Dark Pictures Anthology. It certainly won't be wanting for material even after those ideas are exhausted, as there's still a couple hundred years worth of quality horror concepts to mine.

With each entry sitting at about three or four hours a pop, Supermassive Games should be able to crank them out pretty quickly. As for Man of Medan, it will be out on Xbox One, PC, and PS4 on August 30.
