It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Dead Space creator’s PUBG horror game, but apparently it’s “almost time” to reveal The Callisto Protocol gameplay – maybe even at Summer Game Fest in June, in fact.
The Callisto Protocol is a new action-adventure horror game set in the PUBG Battlegrounds universe – for some reason – made by Striking Distance Studios, which features several members of the former Visceral team that created Dead Space , like series creator Glen Schofield. So it’s an exciting prospect – except we haven’t heard from it since its reveal at The Game Awards in 2020.
Now, founder Glen Schofield has revealed new concept art of The Callisto Protocol on his Twitter account, showing a creepy zombie-like human covered in organic mass. Tantalizingly, Schofield also confirms that “it’s almost time to show you the real thing.” The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley responded with the classic “watch” emote. Given that Keighley is also hosting the Summer Game Fest in June, it’s not such a stretch to imagine The Callisto Protocol getting a proper reveal on the show.

Earlier this month, Schofield offered further clues about the game, saying it was “coming together”. He also said the team would have “more to share soon” – then Keighley also responded to that with his traditional tease.

Either way, it looks like we’ll be hearing a lot more about the Callisto Protocol very soon. PUBG isn’t just getting a horror game either, as developer Krafton is also working on an upcoming Witcher-like RPG named Project Windless and some seriously impressive “virtual human” NPC tech.
