Supermassive Games and Behaviour Interactive are teaming up to produce the next big thing in narrative-driven interactive horror with their upcoming collaboration titled The Casting of Frank Stone, set in the Dead by Daylight universe. The single-player narrative horror game was officially revealed at The Game Awards 2023 on December 7, 2023, and looks to be a promising project created by two of the biggest names in horror gaming.

Set to release across multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, The Casting of Frank Stone is a story that takes place in the varied DbD universe, which ties into a multitude of lore for several iconic horror properties, the most recent of which was the arguably OP killer toy, Chucky. While that well-known horror title is based in PvP combat, the new title will be a standalone single-player experience.

At The Game Awards 2023, new trailers and first-time reveals made up a huge part of the show. Here’s every major announcement made at TGA 2023.


The Casting Of Frank Stone Is A New Narrative Horror Game

Supermassive is an iconic horror game developer who has created a multitude of solid titles and is arguably one of the driving forces of the entire genre of interactive horror games. These titles play out more like movies than video games and rely on storytelling and solid acting. Creators of Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures Anthology, and most recently, the teenage camp horror story The Quarry, there is arguably no studio better to take on the task of adapting the DbD universe to a single-player narrative video game.

Set in Cedar Hills, an Oregon steel mill, The Casting Of Frank Stone will feature a young group of friends — much like other narrative-driven Supermassive titles and the survivors in DbD — as they attempt to overcome the trials of the strange happenings in the small town. Frank Stone, a disturbed killer, leaves deep-lasting wounds on the people in Cedar Hills and bends the fabric of reality itself. This horrid existence is known as The Entity’s Realm and will feature iconic killers in the Dead by Daylight universe.
