First details and images from new Call of Cthulhu game revealed.

The game is an official adaptation of Chaosium’s pen & paper RPG Call of Cthulhu, itself based on H. P. Lovecraft’s much-loved short story of the same name.

Developed by Cyanide, Call of Cthulhu is an RPG-Investigation game with a psychological horror bent and stealth mechanics.


The first screens showcase the oppressive atmosphere of the game’s semi-open environments  – which were built in Unreal Engine 4.

Patrick Pligersdorffer, CEO of Cyanide Studio said:

“We are happy that Focus entrusted us with the development of a video game adaptation of the legendary RPG Call of Cthulhu. As long-time fans of the license, working with longtime partner publisher Focus Home Interactive on such an original and exciting project is, once again, a privilege. We hope to offer fans the game they’ve long been waiting for.”

Not wanting to be left out, Cédric Lagarrigue, president of Focus Home Interactive said.

“We are deeply honored to be partnering with Cyanide again. They’ve grown alongside us for the past 10 years, to become today one of the best independent developers in Europe. With titles such as Styx: Master of Shadows and the Blood Bowl series, they’ve proved their creativity and ability to offer strong gaming experiences in original worlds. Cyanide has been wanting to make a Call of Cthulhu adaptation for years. They now hold all the cards to create a game that will please fans of the Cthulhu mythos, as well as players eager for rich and original gaming experiences.”

Call of Cthulhu will be published by Focus Home Interactive and will come to consoles and PC in 2017.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
