Even though nowadays, we mainly associate Capcom’s Resident Evil series with the origin of survival horror, it was the game Alone in the Dark that inspired Shinji Mikami back then. It was originally released in 1992, and although it received a number of sequels, it never achieved such fame as RE or Silent Hill.

However, in 2018, Atari sold the rights to the brand to THQ Nordic, and it looks like we could finally see the first results after four years. At least this is indicated by a well-known insider.

We’re talking about the leaker known as The Snitch, who has only been on the scene for a few months but has quickly established himself as one of the most trusted sources. He differs from other insiders in that he shares rather cryptic messages on Twitter, but players usually have no problem deciphering what he meant. And this time was no different.

The Snitch wrote on his Twitter profile “Being afraid of the dark is what keeps most of us alive” which was heard in the 2005 film based on Alone in the Dark, so fans were quick to joke that a new game, perhaps a remake, or perhaps another reboot is going to be announced.

The first installment of the Alone in the Dark series was released in 1992, and subsequently, the series received a second and third installments released in 1993 and 1994 respectively. Years later the Darkworks development studio attempted the reboot route, but after the 2001 game failure, the series has returned to the original timeline.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long for an answer, THQ Nordic has a conference on Friday, August 12, where the title will most likely be presented. The event starts at 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET.
