A multiplayer 'Predator' game is coming to PS4 next year

‘Predator: Hunting Ground' will arrive in 2020.

A new take on Predator is coming to PS4. At yesterday's PlayStation State of Play, we learned that IllFonic, the studio behind Friday the 13th, is working on Predator: Hunting Grounds. Due out in 2020, the game is still in early development, but we know that it will be a competitive, online multiplayer experience. And it's being created by a team of Predator fans, loyal to the 1987 film and subsequent takes on the Predator universe.

In the new game, one group will control the firepower and attempt paramilitary missions, while one player controls the Predator. IllFonic is working closely with Fox and Sony Interactive Entertainment. "Not only do these powerhouses believe in our vision, which has made this a dream project, they understand what we want to create," IllFonic CEO Charles Brungardt wrote on the PlayStation blog. "They have given us so much to work with and are empowering us to create something new for fans, while expanding the lore of the Predator." When the game launches, IllFonic promises, there will be surprises for everyone.
