PS5 Exclusive Abandoned Will ‘Eventually’ Make Its Way to PC
Abandoned, the mysterious indie horror game that’s kickstarted an internet rumor mill in recent weeks, is currently billed as a PS5-exclusive. But developer Blue Box Studios has confirmed it will also be coming to PC “eventually.”
The studio has acknowledged a PC release in a number of replies to tweets at the official account in the last few days, most specifically this tweet in reply to a person asking if Abandoned was coming to PC. Blue Box simply replied “eventually.”
That’s the extent of the details we have, and we still don’t have a window for its initially exclusive PS5 release beyond “later this year.” Earlier this month, Blue Box suggested it would be announcing a release date alongside the unveiling of a PS5 app that would showcase realtime trailers and gameplay reveals. The app reveal date got delayed slightly and is set to launch June 25; however, Blue Box has deleted the tweet in which it promised a release date and has not mentioned a release date announcement since.
Abandoned and its studio Blue Box have been at the center of a wild internet rumor mill lately suggesting that the game has ties to Silent Hill, Konami, or Hideo Kojima. Blue Box has denied these rumors multiple times, with both Geoff Keighley and IGN’s own investigations supporting the denial.
We do know that Abandoned is just a code name for the game, and that Blue Box is a real studio based in The Netherlands headed up by CEO Hasan Kahraman, with a team of over 50 people. Blue Box has had two previous titles, one that never left Steam Greenlight, and another that was sold off to another company while still in Early Access. It’s been working with Sony since 2015 on Abandoned, and revealed a teaser for the game earlier this year. Gameplay is expected to be shown at a later date this year, alongside further game info that will hopefully put the rumors to rest for good.
