A secret The Callisto Protocol video hints that something is happening next week

Watch this space...

A phone number hidden in a recent The Callisto Protocol teaser has led to the discovery that something may be happening next week.

Twitterer Shinobi602 - a games industry brand manager - found themselves intrigued enough by the sci-fi horror's most recent promotional video that they texted the number that pops up in the latest trailer.

Eurogamer Here's a new trailer from Gamescom featuring a few shorter snippets of gameplay.

After texting the number, Shinobi received a mysterious video response. The secretive teaser flashes words like "secrets, answers, ARCAS, lies" and ends with a date: 29th September.

Here, check it out for yourself:

What does it mean? Well, that's hard to say right now. What does seem clear, however, is that we'll be getting more intel about The Callisto Protocol some time on Thursday next week. Watch this space, eh - literally…
