Announced at The Game Awards in December 2020, The Callisto Protocol is the brainchild of Dead Space creator Glen Schofield, the former Sledgehammer Games and Visceral Games boss who was appointed CEO of new PUBG Corporation development studio Striking Distance in 2019.
Billed as “an original narrative experience in the PUBG universe”, The Callisto Protocol is a story-driven survival horror game set in a prison colony on Jupiter’s moon Callisto in the year 2320.

Little has been heard of the game since its original announcement, when it was scheduled for release in 2022, but comments from Schofield this week suggest that’s soon to change.
He said on Monday: “This is my favorite time when making a game – the design starts coming together. Love seeing all the hard work the team is doing in the mocap studio to bring our characters to life. Thanks to everyone waiting as we finish and polish the game. We’ll have more to share soon!”
In February 2021, Striking Distance said it had partnered with Skybound Entertainment, the company behind The Walking Dead franchise, to turn The Callisto Protocol into a multimedia franchise.
