New details about Striking Distance Studios’ new sci-fi horror The Callisto Protocol will be revealed next week.
That’s according to Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios, who teased yesterday that “now might be a good time to start” keeping an eye on the studio’s updates.
So far, the studio has indeed played its cards very close, but yesterday — fittingly on Friday the 13th — Schofield teased on his personal Twitter account that we should “check for news next week” before we do the wonderfully gross Drop image of a close-up of one of the Callisto Protocol creatures below.
“If you’re not already following @CallistoTheGame, now might be a good time to start,” Schofield said. “Keep an eye out for news next week. Until then, here’s a close-up of one of the creatures from our world-class character team. You are unbelievable. Happy Friday the 13th! Get ready!”

As Schofield told us in an interview when the horror was unveiled, the story takes place in the distant future on Callisto, Jupiter’s second largest moon and the same size as a planet like Mercury – “It’s a good sized moon!” Glen said – and is confirmed as third-person and single-player.
“Well, I’m not sure how much I can say about that,” Schofield told us after his reveal over a year ago. “But you know, there’s a lore, and there’s a big story that’s being written right now. I’ve always wanted to make another sci-fi horror game. I mean, you know, I love doing sci-fi and I love doing horror. I wanted to go back to exactly what I wanted to do. So I presented them with an idea – then we try to retrofit this storyline that they were working on.”
Schofield also recently shared some new concept art from The Callisto Protocol. The CEO of Striking Distance Studios shared what appears to be concept art of an enemy against a dirty, derelict sci-fi backdrop of smashed gangways and torn fences.
