Ahead of the release of A Quiet Place: Day One, the franchise is continuing its media dominance. Saber Interactive announced that it’s publishing A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead, a first-person, single-player horror video game due out later in 2024 for PC, PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series X/S.

The game takes place in the Quiet Place universe, but features a whole new story about a woman trying to survive the alien apocalypse while dealing with “the anguish of interpersonal family conflicts and her own inner fears.” The gameplay, similar to the movies, will focus on stealth as you try to get around the creatures without making a sound, and scrounging up items and tools that you can use to improvise your way out of situations.

It’s being developed by Stormind Games, most known to video game fans as the studio behind the Remothered survival horror games, but it’s also done work as a support studio. The game was previously announced as in development with iLLOGIKA and EP1T0ME back in 2021, although it hasn’t received any updates since then. The initial reveal just said that Saber would be publishing A Quiet Place video game that would feature an original story in the movie universe, and that it would be out in 2022.

Ahead of The Road Ahead‘s reveal, the website shows Saber and EP1T0ME’s logo, but not iLLOGIKA’s. The press release, however, does not list EP1ToME anywhere.

A Quiet Place, which came out in 2018, was a huge success for Paramount, grossing $188 million domestically on a $17 million budget, according to Box Office Mojo. The sequel, released in 2020, had a much larger $55 million budget and earned $136.4 million domestically (pretty good for a pandemic-era release).

If you can’t wait for a whole video game where you sneak around quietly, you can catch A Quiet Place: Day One, a prequel to the successful John Krasinski-directed franchise on June 28. There’s also a third main series entry that was originally set for release in 2025, but it’s since been delayed.

PS5 Pro: news, rumored release date, price, and specs

Rumors are running rampant about a supposed PlayStation 5 Pro, or PS5 Pro for short. Just like we got a mid-generation upgrade with the PS4 Pro  during the last console cycle, many people are expecting PlayStation to release an incrementally more powerful machine to bridge the gap between the launch unit and an eventual PlayStation 6. Leaks have been coming out from some fairly credible sources, with a lot of juicy and very specific details about what a hypothetical PS5 Pro could look like. As credible as these sources may be, we do still need to take everything we see with some skepticism until Sony officially confirms that this system even exists. Until then, here are all the rumors out there regarding the PS5 Pro.
Rumored release window

A constant release window that all leaks have pointed to is sometime in Fall of 2024. That's right around the corner, probably in the September through November range, meaning we should be getting an official announcement on the console if that is indeed the plan. It appears that PS5 Pro dev kits are now in the hands of more developers, who have been asked that PS5 Pro-enhanced games be submitted for certification in August. These developments point toward a 2024 release.
