DreadXP and Paramount Game Studios join forces on Paranormal Activity Game

Paranormal Activity

DreadXP — one of the most recognized horror video game publishers in the industry — DarkStone Digital and Paramount Game Studios recently announced plans to produce an all-new interactive game experience based on the blockbuster Paranormal Activity franchise.

Known for hit titles such as The Mortuary Assistant, My Friendly Neighborhood, and the Dread X Collection series, DreadXP’s Paranormal Activity pairs the publisher’s expertise in crafting unique, unforgettable terrors with one of the biggest horror properties in the world.

The Paranormal Activity game aims to bring the franchise’s signature found-footage style into the horror gaming space in surprising new ways, immersing players in a story that expands upon the lore and world of the films. One of the game’s advanced features is the “Haunt System,” which will dynamically alter the types and intensity of scares players will encounter based on their actions.

Regarding the collaboration, Epic Pictures CEO and DreadXP producer Patrick Ewald said:

We are thrilled to work with Paramount Game Studios and to have the opportunity to bring the world of Paranormal Activity to gamers everywhere. The films are steeped in rich lore and creative scares, and under the stewardship of creative director Brian Clarke, DreadXP’s Paranormal Activity video game will honor those core tenets and offer horror fans one of our most terrifying games yet.

DreadXP co-director and creative director Brian Clarke (AKA DarkStone Digital), the developer of the acclaimed The Mortuary Assistant, leads the development of Paranormal Activity.

Clarke spoke about the process of developing the new game, saying:

The success of the Paranormal Activity franchise epitomizes the power and reach of the horror genre. 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!

When the original Paranormal Activity movie was released in 2007, not only did it terrify audiences all over the world, but it also reimagined the found footage genre for a whole new generation. So far, the seven films in the franchise, brought to the screen by producers Blumhouse and Solana Films, have earned more than $800 million at the worldwide box office.

The Paranormal Activity video game is slated for release in 2026 across multiple platforms. Additional details will be announced by publisher DreadXP later.
