has revealed that a game he has worked on will feature during Thursday’s PS5 event.Antony Johnston, who wrote the script for Dead Space and has credits on Shadow of Morder and Binary Domain, tweeted that he’s been “working on a big videogame for almost 2 years now,” and suggested that those interested should “watch the PS5 launch event on Thursday.”
As some of you know, I’ve been working on a big videogame for almost 2 years now.
In totally unrelated news, you should all watch the PS5 launch event on Thursday.

Johnston added in the subsequent replies that the game has you “play a character having a really bad time” which is… not a lot to go off, honestly, but we’ll take it! In another quoted retweet suggesting the game will be a horror, Johnston noted that it was “weird how everyone automatically assumes it’ll be a horror game.”
Whether it is something in the same vein as Dead Space or something completely different remains to be seen. Johnston’s pedigree is reason enough to be interested however – not least because we consider Dead Space one of the scariest games ever made.
Regardless, it offers even more reason to tune in to the forthcoming PS5 conference which was recently rescheduled to this Thursday, the 11th of June. If you’re keen, check out our article detailing how to watch the event tomorrow.
