Striking Distance Studios, Inc. and KRAFTON, Inc. today announced that The Callisto Protocol, a new sci-fi survival horror game from the creator of Dead Space, will launch globally on December 2nd, 2022. Built by a team of industry veterans led by iconic game director Glen Schofield, The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror that fuses brutal combat with a deeply human story in a terrifying sci-fi world. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, The Callisto Protocol challenges players to escape the maximum-security Black Iron Prison and uncover the terrifying secrets of the United Jupiter Company. Players will need to search their surroundings and adapt their tactics, using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat to survive a mysterious outbreak that has thrown Callisto into chaos.
The game stars Josh Duhamel as Jacob Lee, a cargo ship pilot trapped deep within Black Iron Prison, and Karen Fukuhara, star of The Boys, who plays a mysterious fellow inmate. More details about the game’s cast and the story will be revealed later this year.
Striking Distance Studios is building The Callisto Protocol using a unique design process the team calls “Horror Engineering.” By blending elements of brutality, atmosphere, tension, humanity, and hopelessness, the studio delivers unforgettable scares that keep players’ hearts racing as they survive to escape the horrors of Callisto and Black Iron Prison.
The Callisto Protocol is available now for pre-orders in Day One, Standard, and Digital Deluxe editions. A Collector’s Edition, available exclusively in the US and Canada at Gamestop and EB Games, includes a limited-run Steelbook case, comic book, and ultra-premium collectible statue.
Striking Distance Studios and KRAFTON have partnered with Skybound Entertainment as a strategic global marketing and distribution partner for The Callisto Protocol.
