The Callisto Protocol sure looks like a spiritual successor to Dead Space

Due to land in 2022. 

If you'd been wondering what Glen Schofield has been up to since he left Sledgehammer, well it's this: The Callisto Protocol, a "next-generation take on survival horror" that looks a lot like the Dead Space series. Which would make sense, seeing as Schofield was the executive producer for Dead Space.

Set on the Jupiter moon Callisto in 2320, the game requires players to escape a maximum security prison and uncover its "terrifying secrets". Judging by the trailer shown at the Game Awards, I can kinda guess what those are.

The Callisto Protocol - Cinematic Trailer Reveal

The Callisto Protocol is being made by studio Striking Distance Studios, a new AAA studio helmed by Schofield and owned by Krafton (the publisher for PUBG). The game is set to come to PC and consoles in 2022, and while the console platforms have not yet been detailed, the description of "next-gen" has me thinking it could be Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 only. We'll have to wait to find out, but the suspense is killing me.
