Currently in development, Dread XP, DarkStone Digital, and Paramount Games have teamed up to bring one of Paramount’s biggest horror blockbusters Paranormal Activity to all gaming platforms in 2026. The game will take place in the cinematic universe of the films and will dive deeper into the lore in a terrifying interactive way.

“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!”

“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.”

In a nutshell, the Paranormal Activity film series is about a demonic entity that torments unsuspecting families who capture the events on home videos, security cameras, etc. with all the films tied together. The video game, The Mortuary Assistant puts players in the shoes of a recently hired assistant to a mortician who one night has to work alone preserving bodies but learns that one of the bodies is possessed by a demon.

This is breaking news about the earliest stages of the game’s development so things may change but as soon as we hear more, you’ll be sure to hear about it!
