Developer Striking Distance Studios has confirmed that its upcoming survival horror game, The Callisto Protocol, has not been delayed despite recent rumours suggesting that it might’ve been pushed into next year. The studio has also confirmed a 60FPS performance mode for the game, taking a slight jab at the recent controversies surrounding Gotham Knights and A Plague Tale: Requiem which both failed to offer the same framerate.
In a short social media message, Striking Distance Studios debunked delay rumours surrounding The Callisto Protocol by reiterating that the game will still release on its original 2 December 2022 launch date. “And yes, we’ll have a 60FPS performance mode,” the team added, slyly addressing the current discussions online surrounding two new releases, Gotham Knights and A Plague Tale: Requiem, specifically about its 30FPS caps.
MORE CALLISTO PROTOCOL – The Callisto Protocol is 12-14 Hours Long with Alternate Routes
The Callisto Protocol is being led by Dead Space creator Glen Schofield and appears to be, at face value, a spiritual successor to the acclaimed survival horror series. However, it offers a bit more brutality in its unflinching violence.
The game’s official Steam page describes it:
“In this narrative-driven, third-person survival horror game set 300 years in the future, the player will take on the role of Jacob Lee – a victim of fate thrown into Black Iron Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary located on Jupiter’s moon, Callisto. When inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures, the prison is thrown into chaos. To survive, Jacob must battle his way to safety to escape Black Iron Prison, while uncovering the dark and disturbing secrets buried beneath the surface of Callisto. Using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat, Jacob will need to adapt his tactics to combat the rapidly evolving creatures while scavenging to unlock new weapons, gear, and abilities to outrun the growing threat and escape the horrors of Jupiter’s Dead Moon.”
The Callisto Protocol launches on 2 December 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
