Thanks for making this! I'm always on the look out for more horror games, so this is definitely a thread I'll be following.

Special Game Awards 2021 update. Today was The Game Awards event and there's been three changes to the list:

-NEW: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Game added

-Untitled Bokeh Game Studios Game is now titled Slitterhead. Trailer added.

-Alan Wake 2 moved from Rumored to Confirmed. Trailer added.

 

I'm surprised and happy for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre news. The original 1974 film is my favorite horror movie all time and despite there being some cheesy entries, I enjoy the series as a whole. There's a new movie coming to Netflix in February. I played the heck out of Friday the 13th: The Game and if TCM is anything like it, it should be a good time.

 

Stay tuned. The next update could be in about a week. On Thursday, December 16th there will be the Madnight 2021 Horror Showcase and possibly some games announced for consoles then.

Christmastime update (The slay bells ring)

10 new games have been added!

 

Confirmed/Announced

Borneo: A Jungle Nightmare | Chasing Static | Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle | Dying: 1983 | FOBIA: St. Dinfna Hotel | Injection π23 – Ars Regia | In Nightmare | Opus Castle

 

Rumored/Likely/Console Plans

Paranoid | Tormentor

 

Other recent changes

-The Signifier: Director's Cut added to different genre games list

-Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach released. Removed from list & archived

-System Shock Remake consoles updated, release date added, article added, 2nd video added

-Slitterhead third person info added, article 3 added

 

Also, the previously mentioned Madnight 2021 Horror Showcase event took place Dec. 16. It was an interesting presentation with a "Hell messenger", actors, NSFW scenes, and other weird stuff. It showcased many upcoming horror titles from Madmind Studio and partners. Platforms were not listed but most are for PC and a couple are for console. There was a VR version of Agony, an autopsy simulator, a torture themed game, and other unique titles. The two games set to appear on console (PS5) are Paranoid and Tormentor. The showcase can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/8GEG_QbPqyg

 

Borneo: A Jungle Nightmare has a bit of controversy attached to it. It's being worked on with the director of Cannibal Holocaust. Par for the course. Chasing Static's retro aesthetic is charming but it's published by Ratalaika and is a short game. It's currently on Steam. There's more games to explore but that's it from me for now.

 

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals and have a happy new year. A new year with a new batch of that sweet horror goodness is on the way.

too many are in first person so I will skip those. Plan to look into Calisto Protocol, Dead Space (Remake or Re-Imagining I wonder which it will really be), Tormentor and Slitterhead.

 

Tormented Souls is getting a physical release in February as well.

January & February Roundup

 

I updated the list the past two months as the horror game news came in and piled up. Here's what's been added and changed.

 

Jan:

  • NEW: Do Not Open added. The list's first VR only title!
  • Dying Light 2 2nd and final trailer added
  • In Nightmare release date, article, and 2nd trailer added
  • Paranoid new article 1 and moved to Confirmed/Announced

Feb:

  • NEW: MADiSON added. This one looks like a cross between Visage and Fatal Frame and it looks phenomenal. Definitely looking forward to MADiSON!
  • NEW: The Dark Pictures Anthology: Season 2 added. All five names of the Season 2 titles were revealed via a trademark filing.
  • Dying Light 2 released. Moved to archive.
  • Evil Dead: The Game release date changed. New release date is May 13th, 2022
  • Ikai release date changed. New release date is TBA. It fell out of it's January 2022 release window.
  • Martha is Dead revealed to have censored content on PlayStation but not XBox or PC. Article 4 and the now closed PSNProfiles topic 2 added.
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Game revealed to be 3v4 asymmetrical multiplayer and article 2 added. Judging by the game's cover art it will be four survivors running from three killers: Leatherface and his two brothers, Drayton and Nubbins Sawyer. This is definitely a unique setup and I don't think it's been done before. Can't wait to see more! As an aside, the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film is out on Netflix in just a couple days (Feb. 18). Gotta watch that.
  • Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle 2nd trailer added.
  • Atomic Heart, Chernobylite (PS5), Ripout, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 added to different genre games list.
  • Messing with font sizes. Using 22 for new categories and 18 for games. Everything is not 14 anymore. Hopefully it looks better now.

Thanks for the info and also ty for the being the first to contribute to the list! Now I need to make a credits section :highfive:

 

That looks interesting. I like the gritty WWI setting. We’ll see how it turns out. I’ll add this in the next update. Saw it’s coming to Steam and GOG but didn’t see consoles confirmed (unless you know otherwise?). The creator did say they will do everything they can to port it so this will find a place in the console plans category nicely. Hopefully we see it on PS.

I'm a backer and the dev told me it will come to consoles just a bit later than on pc. Nonetheless, still a great game!

Horror Games Roundup from the last ~60 days

(In time order to show what happened when)

 

State of Play in early June then Summer Game Fest 2022 produced noteworthy news. It was awesome to see so many horror games highlighted in both. Mostly due to Callisto Protocol and all of the various Resident Evil titles.

 

April

  • Fobia: St. Dinfna Hotel possible release date, preorder link, and video 2 added
  • The Quarry video 2 added
  • NEW: Conscript added. Thanks to Ptirle for info and the addition! This looks like a cool top down horror set during WWI.
  • Chernobylite for PS5 released. Moved to different genre games archive
  • Evil Dead: The Game video 3 added
  • Injection π23 – Ars Regia May 23rd release date added
  • The House of the Dead Remake released. Moved to different genre games archive

 

May

  • Resident Evil Re:Verse added to different genre games list. There was recent news about this forgotten shooter set in the Resident Evil universe and now more than ever, it looks like it could release this year.
  • Dead Space Remake release date and article 4 added. Also a non-important video was removed to tighten it up
  • Evil Dead: The Game released. Moved to archive. This one was reviewed well and popular with players. Always good to see.
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video 2 added. A game vs. original film comparison video. It's unreal how authentic the locations are going to be in the game.
  • NEW: The Chant added. A trippy and good looking third person horror game coming out this Fall for PS5
  • NEW: Silent Hill 2 Remake rumored game added. Supposedly it is a PS5 exclusive from Bloober Team. If true, this would be a dream to many players. SH2 is a classic and one of my favorite games also. Rumors should be taken with a grain of salt though. Then you won't be disappointed if doesn't happen.
  • Fobia: St. Dinfna Hotel June 28th release date, article 3, and video 3 added. This is turning out to look like a pretty good RE7-like horror game.
  • Injection π23 – Ars Regia released. Moved to archive
  • The Quarry multiplayer update delay info, article 3, and video 3 added. Online multiplayer will be added to the game via update by July 8th. Local multiplayer is still available day one.
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre console (PS5), a link to "The Hub" (official website with more info), article 3, and PSNProfiles topic added. Moved from Rumored... to Confirmed.
  • NEW: White Day: A Labyrinth Named School for PS5 added. PS5 version of the already released PS4 game.
  • Saint Kotar moved from Rumored... to Confirmed. Consoles, October 14th release date, article 2, and video 1 added
  • MADiSON two week delay. Release date changed from June 24th to July 8th and video 3 added. Still hyped for this one.

 

June

  • Resident Evil 4 Remake moved from Rumored... to Confirmed. Console (PS5), release date (March 24, 2023), article 3, and video 1 added. The start of the crazy, fun June news!
  • NEW: Resident Evil Village for PSVR2 added. This is supposedly a port of the PS5 game for use with the upcoming PSVR2. It's strange how they didn't mention it to be an update to the existing game. Guess we'll see.
  • Callisto Protocol release date (December 2nd), article 3, and videos 2 and 3 added
  • NEW: The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution added. This was a nice surprise. Coming out on PS4 & PSVR late 2022 and early 2023 for PS5 & PSVR2
  • TAPE: Unveil the Memories for PS5 added to different genre games list. PS5 version of the already released PS4 game coming out this Fall
  • Abandoned article 2 added. This game is looking... well, abandoned.
  • NEW: Overdose rumored game added. Supposedly the new horror game from Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions
  • NEW*: Untitled Layers of Fear Project renamed Layers of Fears and moved from Rumored... to Confirmed. Console (PS5), release date (Early 2023), article 2, and video 2 added. The lid has been lifted on the new title in the Layers of Fear franchise and it looks great! *Kinda new
  • The Quarry released. Moved to archive. This too was reviewed well and is popular among players. Great to see.
  • System Shock Remake video 3 added. This game's come a long way.
  • Resident Evil 2 for PS5 released. Moved to archive.
  • Resident Evil 3 for PS5 released. Moved to archive.
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for PS5 released. Moved to archive. Capcom Showcase at Summer Game Fest: 'Surprise! All three are out today cause why not'
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video 3 added. Gameplay with violence and kills is shown.
  • NEW: Signalis added. A gnarly looking indie retro-style third person sci-fi survival horror inspired by Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Too many descriptors, ahh.

 

Misc

  • Credits section added. Ptirle is first member to suggest a game that was added to the list!
  • Changelog and Archive separated. Makes things easier and is better organized.
  • Added Bonus section with another big ol' list of horror games. This time by a user on IMDb who lists over a thousand horror games dating back to 1972. It's interesting and a trip back to memory lane.
  • Added a Stalled, less likely to release, or has not received updates category. There have been no signs and no news to change anyone's mind on the outlook of these titles. It is unfortunate but it might be best they receive their own category near the bottom of the list. Good thing is the games that are confirmed or likely to release will be easier to see. I hesitate to add a title to this category. There must be no updates in a long time or in Abandoned's case, reports that it's stalled, been placed on hold, or otherwise looking all doom and gloom. Hopefully some of these titles will be able to break out of this category and I will move them accordingly.

The games moved from Confirmed category to the new Stalled category:

Abandoned, Borneo, Do Not Open, Ghosts, Opus Castle

The games moved from Rumored category to the new Stalled category:

Once Upon a Time in Roswell, Project Nightmares Case 36: Henrietta Kedward

 

Edit: Just realized I’ve been doing this 6 months. 6 months and we have 69 total games guys. Also if the mobile phone doesn’t load this have to restart phone to get the memory back. It’s gotten too big.

Another follower here :)

 

The Callisto Protocol, Dead Space Remake, Alan Wake II and Resident Evil 4 have all peaked my interest.

Even Layers of Fears looks more like the first game (which was better than the second imo) so I'll probably be picking that up too.

 

A very good year for us horror fans!

Horror Games Roundup from the last ~60 days

(In time order to show what happened when)

 

A bunch of new horror game announcements this round but surprisingly, not many announced for the soon-coming spooky season. With Halloween just two and half months away, there's only been a couple titles announced for release in the Fall and a couple with October launches. None specifically mentioned Halloween. Until now! Excellent survival horror The Beast Inside has been announced for Halloween '22. The next scheduled roundup due mid-October should be interesting. Maybe we'll see a lot more games with October or Halloween launches. The best time of the year is near!

 

June

  • NEW: DreadOut 2 added. Two years after releasing on PC, players will see a port of the Asian and picture-taking third person survival horror on July 20th.
  • NEW: Bloodwash added. Revealed at the Puppet Combo Direct Show and releasing Fall '22. Puppet Combo's old school vibes are charming and this first person survival horror set in a laundromat is no exception. Get ready for retro laundry terror!
  • Fobia: St. Dinfna Hotel released. Moved to archive
  • The Chant article 3 and video 2 added. We see what the story is about and some creature designs. The Chant is looking fantastic.
  • Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle release date change. It slipped out of it's Early '22 release window and is now targeting sometime this year.
  • NEW: SENSEs: Midnight added. The sequel to Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is out on PC and planning a console launch but nothing announced yet.
  • The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me release date (Fall '22), article 3, and video 2 added.

 

July

  • Last Days of Lazarus added to different genre games list
  • Inscryption added to different genre games list
  • MADiSON released. Moved to archive
  • Ad Infinitum consoles (PS4, PS5), release date (April 20, 2023), article 2, and video 2 added
  • NEW: Yomawari: Lost in the Dark added. This third person isometric and animated ghost tale is the third in the series and is releasing Oct. 25th and Oct. 28th, depending on the region.
  • NEW: Untitled Single Player, Action-Horror Aliens Game from Survios added. We know this will be a new storyline set between the Alien and Aliens films, who the developer is, and that it's being built in Unreal Engine 5 but that's about it. It sounds promising but we need more information.
  • Kona II: Brume added to different genre games list
  • Paradize Project added to different genre games list. This one stands out because it's from the team behind the How to Survive series and it pretty much looks like what How to Survive 3 would look like. If you like zombies and survival aspects, the HtS games are good fun. Especially when played in co-op. This one's due out next year for PS5.
  • DreadOut 2 released. Moved to archive

 

August

  • White Day: A Labyrinth Named School release date added. The PS5 version of the creepy, Korean chase-and-hide horror game will be releasing September 8, '22.
  • NEW: Outbreak: Shades of Horror. The typically underwhelming Outbreak series is getting a big boost with this new title. It's the team's biggest and most ambitious game yet. You can toggle first person, third person, or retro-style fixed camera modes. It is coming to PS5, will have online and offline co-op, and they are launching a Kickstarter here on August 31st.
  • Sherlock Holmes The Awakened added to different genre games list. Sherlock Holmes games developer, Frogwares, will be remaking their 2007 title from the ground up. It's coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2023. Early art and video of this Lovecraftian adventure looks amazing. As of right now, there is a Kickstarter campaign underway here and they have raised $174K of their $72K goal with 19 days to go. Two stretch goals have been unlocked, including the option to play as Dr. Watson. They are seeking additional funding due to the hardships of developing in Ukraine and the war with Russia.
  • NEW: Alone in the Dark added. This remake of the 1992 PC title went from rumored to confirmed in a matter of days. In early August, a German website stated a new Alone in the Dark was to be revealed soon. Then it was expected to be revealed at the THQ Nordic showcase on August 12th and a leak with screenshots appeared a day prior. It was one of the first games shown in the showcase and it looks good. The Alone in the Dark series is one of the first survival horror games (as we know them) and set the standard for games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Newer titles in the long running series panned but early titles were decent and important for the survival horror genre as a whole. Hoping for the best with the remake.
  • NEW: The Beast Inside added. This port of the highly regarded 2019 first person survival horror game for PC is due out Halloween '22 and is coming to PS4 and PS5. Consoles were always a goal, ever since the Kickstarter in early 2018. It released on PC and enjoyed success there but there was no word on the console versions. Finally, just recently, the team announced that console versions are coming Halloween. The Beast Inside has great graphics and an intriguing story line that gives the ability to play as two different protagonists in two different timelines. Also, fans of period pieces will enjoy playing as the character from the old times. It was really immersive.

 

See you in October!
