New Paranormal Activity Game Announced By The Makers Of The Mortuary Assistant

DreadXP's hair-raising new game is scheduled to release sometime in 2026.


DreadXP and DarkStone Digital--the teams behind the viral hit The Mortuary Assistant--have announced plans to partner with Paramount Game Studios to release a game in the Paranormal Activity universe.

"DreadXP’s Paranormal Activity video game will bring the franchise's groundbreaking found-footage-style to horror enthusiasts in surprising new ways, immersing them in a story that expands upon the lore and world of the films," the studio said of its new project.

Now Playing: Paranormal Activity: Found Footage - Game Reveal Teaser

The game--which appears to simply be named Paranormal Activity, based on the teaser trailer--will feature a "Haunt System" the studio says will "dynamically alter the types and intensity of scares players will encounter based on their actions."

“We are thrilled to work with Paramount Game Studios and to have the opportunity to bring the world of Paranormal Activity to gamers everywhere,” said Epic Pictures CEO and DreadXP producer Patrick Ewald. “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.”

“The success of the Paranormal Activity franchise epitomizes the power and reach of the horror genre,” said DreadXP co-director and creative director Brian Clarke. “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!”

The found footage-style horror game is currently slated for release sometime in 2026, and will be coming to "multiple platforms," though those platforms have not yet been named. DreadXP's previous spine chiller, The Mortuary Assistant, is available for PC and Nintendo Switch, so it's possible Switch players will get another dose of fear when Paranormal Activity is released. DreadXP says it will announce additional details regarding the game "at a later date."
