Striking Distance’s New Game Isn’t PUBG, but a Space Horror Game Called The Callisto Protocol

As announced during The Game Awards 2020, Striking Distance Studios’ new game is not related to PUBG at all, but is rather a new horror game called The Callisto Protocol. Striking Distance is led by Glen Schofield, the creator of Dead Space — so it’s no surprise The Callisto Protocol looks eerily similar. It’s referred to as a “terrifying, story-driven, survival horror game set in a prison colony on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto.”

While we didn’t get to see gameplay just yet, the game’s description on the official website describes it as a mix of “horror, action, and immersive storytelling.” If EA won’t give us a new Dead Space game, it looks like Striking Distance Studios will. We’ll be eagerly anticipating the release of The Callisto Protocol until it launches sometime in 2022 for next-gen consoles and PC.
