When that will be, however, Atari isn't saying. The publisher has also kept quiet on other details of the game, although we do know the next Alone in the Dark will feature an "open environment," an "original game structure designed to appeal to a mass audience." But if previous games in the series are any indication, you'll probably spend a lot of time shooting and running scared from creepy-ass monsters, all while being confronted with buckets of gore and an ever-growing sensation of dread. (Our fingers are also crossed that it'll have nothing to do with the nonsensical military-vs-invisible-monsters movie plot.) With any luck, we'll see more of this one next month at E3.
