SKYBOUND ENTERTAINMENT, STRIKING DISTANCE STUDIOS INK DISTRIBUTION PARTNERSHIP
Skybound Entertainment, Striking Distance Studios and KRAFTON Inc. have announced a partnership deal for the upcoming The Callisto Protocol survival horror game.
Co-founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Skybound will act as a strategic partner for Striking Distance and KRAFTON, bringing expertise in building horror-themed transmedia brand extensions.
The Callisto Protocol is a single-player narrative-driven survival horror game, set in the black iron prison on Jupiter’s dead moon in the year 2320. Players must survive “unspeakable horrors” as they escape the prison and uncover dark secrets of the United Jupiter Company. The game, developed by Striking Distance, is headed by Dead Space creator Glen Schofield, who also serves as CEO and co-founder of the studio.
“Striking Distance Studios has one goal with The Callisto Protocol — to make one of the most terrifying games of all time,” said Schofield. “Skybound Entertainment is unrivaled in the worlds of sci-fi and horror storytelling, and will be an incredible partner for KRAFTON and Striking Distance Studios as we bring the world of The Callisto Protocol to life in games and beyond.”
The Callisto Protocol is slated to launch on consoles and PC in 2022. It was first introduced in December at The Game Awards. Check out the trailer here:
