If you're unlike me and can play a scary game for more than 5 minutes, then you might be interested to know that there's a Paranormal Activity game that's just been announced!

The game is being developed by DarkStone Digital, a solo developer (Brian Clarke), who developed The Mortuary Assistant, a well-received horror game, back in 2022. The squad is also being kept together, as he is working with DreadXP, publishers of The Mortuary Assistant. Both companies are working in collaboration with Paramount Pictures to bring Paranormal Activity to video game form.

There's a short teaser trailer that's been released to announce the game:

I know, not much to go on, right? That's likely because the game isn't actually due to release for at least another 2 years. The current expected release date is 2026. Given the developer's pedigree, and the fact that they say they plan for Paranormal Activity to be even scarier than The Mortuary Assistant, horror fans may be in for a treat when it finally does launch though.

Here's a direct quote from the game's creative director, Brian Clarke:

If you thought The Mortuary Assistant was scary, we’re taking what we learned during the development of that title and cranking it up with a more reactive and horrifying haunting system. It’s going to be intense!

Brian Clarke, Creative Director

The game aims to keep and honor the original film's "found footage" style of horror, likely referenced by the video glitches in the game's teaser trailer.


And that's about all we know for now, we're not even sure what platforms the game will be released on, but we presume PC will be one of them, as they have confirmed Paranormal Activity is in development for "Multiple Gaming Platforms".

DreadXP Games says to be sure to follow them on X (Twitter) to keep up with the latest news and announcements about the game.

(We do know there was a 2017 VR Paranormal Activity game, but we don't talk about that one, it had the scariest thing of all in it, BUGS, that's right, a lot of users were unable to open doors when playing the game! Could anything be scarier???)
