Completely gutted. When I saw the flashlight thing I was sure it was Alan Wake 2.

yea thought it was AW2, then Outlast 3. I dont even like First Person esp horror but I'll probably support BW. it did help popularize Found Footage Films which had a nice run in the early 00s.

Looked super cool, and yeah it looks basically like an Alan Wake 2 - lots of clear influence with the flashlight, camera, light/dark, static, psych horror and all that.
Fear is the mindkiller.

I think most of us did. Good way of getting our attention though!

Not too fond of horror games but this was one of the few highlights of this year's show for me.

This game looked good and the new tales game I'm excited for but I thought the conference was pretty disappointing

Just an FYI, this is NOT the first time Blair Witch games have been made.

There were three on the PC back in 2000... after the movie came out.

I got super excited (like most of us by the sound of it) that this was an Alan Wake surprise announcement. Oh well, this still looks interesting.

I gotta say that this year was a bit of a letdown, overall. No big new IPs, which is what I was hoping to see. Not even a peak at the Gears 5 campaign...come on Microsoft.

Gears campaign was shown on the Gears mixer after the main show, I think.

Just because it isn't called Alan Wake 2 doesn't mean it isn't basically Alan Wake 2 btw, I don't even think a developer was listed yet.

Couldn’t agree more. Surprised me and it looked good.

It's made by The Bloober Team (Layers of Fear, observer). I like those games a lot, and I like Blair Witch. I'm glad this is coming to Game Pass though because their games don't have a ton of replay value. It also only lists Steam Xbox and GOG so I guess we get a console exclusive

If anyone from the GI team is reading this the official site is https://www.blairwitchgame.com I tried to submit it but it's not an option.
