Paranormal Activity is Getting a Video Game in Collab with Paramount

The new Paranormal Activity game adaptation is going to be found-footage horror featuring a "horrifying haunting system".

Going on for almost 17 years, the Paranormal Activity franchise has long established its place among cult horror cinema. However, in all this time, the series has never gotten a proper video game adaptation except for Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul which came out back in 2017.

The horror game industry has come a long way, gradually evolving from survival horror to more emotionally driven stories, constantly bringing out sub-genres and inventing new ways to tell a compelling horror story, as the sole visually horrifying aspect no longer holds the same value in the age of realistic computer graphics. There's been a certain rise in the popularity of found-footage horror media and video games in recent years, which the new Paranormal Activity title is apparently going to employ as well.

Paranormal Activity: Found Footage is currently in development by DarkStone Digital, the creator of The Mortuary Assistant, and publisher DreadXP. This time, the developers are actually working with Paramount Game Studios and making some promising statements regarding the new game adaptation.

"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," said DreadXP producer Patrick Ewald.

"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!" added Brian Clarke, the owner of DarkStone Digital.

While there is no confirmation on the platforms, the game will most likely be available on most of them, since the 2017 Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul was released for PC and PS4.

The developers also announced that Paranormal Activity: Found Footage is set to release in 2026.
