Bloober Team is most well-known as The Medium and Observer’s studio, but its Layers of Fear franchise was the original. The studio said at Tokyo Game Show that a third title in the series is planned for 2022.
Unreal Engine 5 is currently being used to create the new game. The title has not yet been released. A teaser trailer establishes an unsettling atmosphere while ostensibly showing off the game’s presumed graphical fidelity.
The first two Layers of Fear games were released in 2016 and 2019, respectively. Each tells psychological horror stories set in haunted areas with areas that constantly morph and change shape, messing with the players’ sense of perception. You play the role of a painter who is trying to create his next masterpiece. In the sequel, you play as a Hollywood actor who is cast on a movie set aboard a cruiseship. While they weren’t the most universally beloved titles (read our reviews for Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear 2), the series certainly has its fans and hopefully, Bloober Team has learned valuable lessons to apply in the third entry.
Bloober Team confirmed that they have two AAA games still in development. The studio stated previously that these AAA games were bigger than The Medium. Bloober Team spent several months trying to deflect rumors that one game is being developed by Silent Hill.
