Be that as it may, The Callisto Protocol has managed to excite fans of space terror with a delivery scheduled for the next December 2. As if this were not enough, from Striking Distance Studios they have also wanted to highlight their work to implement Ray Tracing on PC and consoles, although they also quicken our pulse by promising a more violent and adult adventure than Dead Space.
