In celebration of Friday the 13th, founder and CEO of Striking Distance Glen Schofield not only teased that news of The Callisto Protocol is on the way next week, but also shared a terrifying close-up of one of the game’s creatures.
Schofield, who was also the creator of Dead Space, shared the news on Twitter for the game, which is set in the PUBG universe and slated for a PC and console release in 2022.

“If you don’t already follow Tweet embed “Now might be the time to start,” Scofield wrote. Look for some news next week. Until then, here’s a close-up of one of the creatures from our global team of characters. They don’t believe. Happy Friday on the 13th! get ready!”
The picture is so close it’s hard to fathom exactly what it is, but it looks straight out of a nightmare and lends weight to Scofield’s earlier comments about his desire for Callisto Protocol to be “the scariest game on next-gen platforms.”
Announced at The Game Awards 2020, Callisto Protocol is a single-player and third-person survival horror adventure that appears to take place in the year 2320 on Callisto’s moon Jupiter.
In the game, players will need to “survive unspeakable horrors while escaping from the Black Iron [Prison] Uncover the dark secrets of the mysterious United Jupiter.”
In February 2021, Striking Distance revealed its collaboration with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and his company Skybound Entertainment to extend the Callisto IP protocol.
