Could Until Dawn Become The Next Great PlayStation Franchise?
We all know the exclusive lineup for PlayStation is a little light this holiday season. Sony has even admitted it.
Sure, we're getting Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Horizon: Zero Dawn and other great exclusives down the road, but I think we need another new IP that could become a successful series for the brand.
Might that IP be the recently released Until Dawn? It has its fair share of problems but the foundation is excellent and developer Supermassive Games really tried to do more with the interactive drama concept. Many claim they even improved on the idea pioneered by the likes of Quantic Dream (Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain) and really, with the entire industry going open-world and by default putting story on the back burner (just look at MGSV), maybe this is a good thing. Maybe Supermassive needs to keep going down this road.
I know there isn't much more to tell concerning the story in Until Dawn, and I understand there are dozens of ways to see it. But what if the next effort was a prequel, perhaps dealing with the events leading up to the disappearance of the two sisters, Hannah and Beth? Or, perhaps get a whole new cast of characters and a whole new story, but keep it within the Until Dawn framework?
I don't know about you but I'd very much enjoy that.
