The future of The Callisto Protocol

We have left the world expandable through DLC or later productsMark James, CTO of Striking Distance StudiosJames looks beyond and contemplates the title like a franchise: “We like to think of this as a franchise. It’s really expensive to generate a new IPso we always want to try make the most of it. At the moment, we have a linear story mode. We can still tell the whole story of the prison outbreak without even touching the linear story.”
The Callisto Protocol will hit the market next December 2 to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. One of the keys to the title is the creatures, whose behavior will resemble that seen in the Xenomorph from Alien Isolation.
