Layers of Fear developer reveals Observer remaster (update)

Updated April 16, 2020: Observer System Redux is a next-generation version of the original game with some new story elements. It’s not the sequel we were hoping for.

In a cryptic video message on Twitter, Bloober Team appears to tease an Observer sequel — or at least a project related to Observer. The short video clip features the Chiron Incorporated logo with the words “Incoming Call” but it doesn’t tease anything further than that.

A Twitter user even decoded some of the glitchy binary in the message that flashes to read: “Daniel, are you there?” Bloober Teams responded to this by saying, “Good hacks! :D” confirming that whatever this has to do with Observer since the game’s protagonist was named Daniel and the video itself features the logo of the Chiron corporation in the game.

Developer Bloober Team has been focused on psychological horror games the past few years with Layers of Fear, Observer, and Blair Witch.

Considering the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are less than a year from release, it would be nice to see this sequel come to next-generation consoles. As of right now, though, platforms have not been confirmed, nor has a release date or any substantial information, for that matter. Let’s hope it’s a sequel and not a port of the original game.
