Bloober Team, the developers behind The Medium, Blair Witch and the Layers of Fear series, are getting set up to create a brand new experience for the new generation of consoles. They’ve teamed up with publisher Rogue Games, a publisher founded by industry veterans. Rogue Team shared the announcement on its Twitter:
Just when you thought the scary season was over, here comes some terrifying news: Rogue and @BlooberTeam have joined forces to bring something new and frightening…

“We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Rogue on this incredible project,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO of Bloober Team. “We pride ourselves on making games that push the boundaries of originality and immersion, and we’re delighted to be working alongside a company that shares our vision.”
Their project has only just begun, so neither team is ready to announce exactly what the game will be, but given Bloober Team’s history of horror games, it’s a safe guess to say that it will be something horror-themed. The partnership is setting its sights on the new generation of consoles, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
“We’ve admired Bloober’s dark and gorgeous games for years, so we knew right away they were the only team to do this crazy cool concept justice,” added Matt Casamassina, CEO of Rogue Games. “Today’s not the day—unforgettable, original, kickass games take time and care to make—but we can’t wait to fully announce details on this project at a later date.”
