Five more Dark Pictures games discovered on an IP registration site


Oops. It looks like the names of the next five games in the Dark Pictures series have been discovered. They were registered, along with logos for each game, on the website of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) website.

The games are Directive 8020, which has a moon in the logo, The Craven Man, which features a spooky figure, Intercession which includes and upside down cross, Winterfold, which just has a handprint, and most intriguingly, O Death, which shows a man, perhaps the Curator, on a card.


The current series of The Dark Pictures anthology will run for four games and we already know what the final title is. The Devil In Me was teased at the end of the most recent game, House of Ashes.

Very little is known about the game other than it is set in Michigan and seems to be in a relatively modern time period. The big star name for the game this time Irish actress Jessie Buckley who won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in Wild Rose. You may also recognise her from a star performance Lyudmilla Ignatenko in Chernobyl, or Nurse Oraetta Mayflower in the fourth season of Fargo.

It has been suggested that the game may also influenced by real life serial killer H. H. Holmes. During the late 1880’s he built a hotel in Chicago packed full of secrete passages and sound proofed rooms which allowed him to murder his guests. He also had a torture chamber in which he starved and burned his victims. Nice chap.

It does seem that Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco have faith in the series and are planning ahead with the next series already locked in.
