At the end of this year we can expect The Callisto Protocol, which is a brand new game from Striking Distance Studios. The studio is headed by Glen Schofield, who was previously responsible for the Dead Space franchise. So if anyone knows anything about horror, it’s him and the images released so far don’t lie.
However, once the game is released, it is not ready immediately. It turns out that The Callisto Protocol will certainly receive years of support. Speaking to TrueTrophies, Mark James, the developer’s chief technical officer, indicated that they have many plans for the post-launch period.
To be precise, it’s four years of post-release support. This is a ‘full service’ title, which will receive the necessary extra content. It’s not quite clear what form that will take, but judging by his words, it looks like we’re getting narrative expansions.
“We view this as a full-service title and we will be investing in DLC. We’re looking at four years of support after release. We’ve left the world expandable. We’ve created a world that can tell different stories, and so we can either tell those stories either through DLC, or we could actually tell those stories through subsequent products. We’ve left those open.”
