Official ‘Paranormal Activity’ Video Game Announced for 2026!

The found footage horror franchise Paranormal Activity is planning a return in 2026, but the next installment in the hit franchise will be a video game rather than a new movie.

DreadXP — one of the most recognized horror video game publishers in the industry — DarkStone Digital, and Paramount Game Studios today announced plans to produce an all-new interactive game experience based on the blockbuster Paranormal Activity franchise.

Known for hit titles such as The Mortuary Assistant, My Friendly Neighborhood, and the Dread X Collection series, DreadXP’s Paranormal Activity pairs the video game publisher’s expertise in crafting unique, unforgettable terrors with one of the biggest horror properties in the world.

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. DreadXP co-director and creative director Brian Clarke (AKA DarkStone Digital), the developer of the acclaimed The Mortuary Assistant, leads the development of Paranormal Activity.

The game will feature an advanced “Haunt System,” which 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!”

What began as an indie sensation in 2007 became a global horror phenomenon as the original Paranormal Activity terrified audiences around the world and reimagined the “found footage” genre for a whole new generation. The seven chilling films in the franchise, brought to the screen by producers Blumhouse and Solana Films, have earned more than $800 million at the worldwide box office.

The Paranormal Activity video game is slated for release in 2026 across multiple platforms. Additional details will be announced by publisher DreadXP at a later date.
