2017’s Observer was a unique cyberpunk-horror game that grabbed everyone’s attention when it came out. Now, the team behind the cult hit has teased an upcoming project in development for the next-gen consoles – Observer System Redux.
As the name suggests, we’re guessing the game will be a remaster instead of a straight-up sequel, although it hasn’t exactly been confirmed. The original Observer was a brilliant game set in a neon-lit future similar to that found in the Blade Runner universe. It was a detective-mystery with a hefty chunk of cyberpunk vibe.
The new teaser for Observer System Redux paints itself as a visual overhaul, which makes sense considering the power of the next-gen consoles. An earlier tweet seemingly pointed to more details coming on 23/01/2020, but that date doesn’t make any sense. At best, we’re guessing the game will be announced on 23rd April, or sometime later.
I played the original quite recently and was blown away by the level of detail present in the game. It’s not a AAA game by any means, but it did have a lot of care put into it.
If you haven’t tried it out, Observer is available on PC (Steam), PS4 and Xbox One. Observer: System redux is expected to be a lunch title for both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, coming in late 2020.
