What you need to know

  • The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is the sequel to last years' Man of Medan.
  • Little Hope is set to release sometime in Summer 2020.
  • The Dark Pictures Anthology is meant to comprise a total of eight games.

In 2019, Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco released The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, the first entry in a planned octology of horror games. With one down, Supermassive has officially confirmed that The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is the next entry and it is planned to release sometime in Summer 2020.

You can take a look at a compilation of streamers freaking out at Man of Medan below. If all you want to see is the bits of new stuff from Little Hope, skip to around the 1:58 mark.

Given the size and price of the previous game, it's safe to say Little Hope will probably be around 4 hours long and about $30 USD. Beyond that, all we know is there's a new setting, far from the desolate seas of Man of Medan. Four college students and a professor are the main characters, attempting to flee a mysterious fog.

In my review of Man of Medan, I said that "There's plenty of great spooky stuff to go through, though the story feels a bit too safe and restrained compared to Supermassive's prior work. At around $30 and about four hours to play through, with plenty of replayability, this is well worth grabbing if you're interested in narrative-driven horror games."
