New details on Striking Distance Studios’ new sci-fi horror, The Callisto Protocol, will be revealed next week.
So says Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios, who teased yesterday that “now might be a good time to start” and keeps an eye out for updates from the studio.
So far, the studio has indeed played its cards very close to the chest, but yesterday – appropriately Friday the 13th – Schofield teased on his personal Twitter account that we should “find news next week”, before dropping the wonderfully crude image. of a close-up of one of the creatures of the Callisto Protocol below.
“If you’re not already following @CallistoTheGame, now might be a good time to start,” Schofield said. “Looking forward to some news next week. Until then, here’s a close-up of one of the creatures from our world-class character team. They’re incredible. Happy Friday the 13th! Get ready!”

As Schofield told us in an interview when the horror was revealed, the story is set in a distant future on Callisto, Jupiter’s second largest moon, and the size of a planet like Mercury – “It’s a good moon! ” Glen said – and it has been confirmed that he is third person and single player.
“Well, I’m not sure how much I can even say about it,” Schofield told us in the wake of the unveiling over a year ago now. “But you know, there’s a lore, and there’s a big storyline being written right now. I’ve wanted to do another sci-fi horror game for a while. I mean, you know, I like to do sci-fi and I love it to horror. I wanted to get back to exactly what I wanted to do. So I presented an idea to them – then we try to adapt this storyline that they’ve been 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 dingy, dilapidated sci-fi backdrop of busted gunwales and torn fences.
