A Quiet Place: The Game — Everything We Know



If John Krasinski has shown us anything in the past several years, it’s that Jim from The Office US is more than capable of pulling off a convincing role in an award-winning survival thriller movie. It was so convincing, in fact, that Paramount Pictures has only gone and teamed up with Saber Interactive and EP1T0ME Studios to turn A Quiet Place into a full-fat video game. And while Krasinski himself won’t be making a cameo appearance in the upcoming adaptation, just about everything else from the flourishing saga will be pivoting its way in. Or at least, that’s what the devs have insinuated, anyway.

Basic jargon aside, what more do we actually know about A Quiet Place: The Game, other than it being under the same hammer that helped fashion Evil Dead: The Game? Well, here’s everything we’ve been able to gather on the matter since first hearing of it back in 2021.

What Is A Quiet Place?

In a nutshell, A Quiet Place is an award-winning horror series that comprises two chapters—a debut film in 2018, and a sequel in 2021. At the time of writing, a third movie, aptly titled A Quiet Place: Day One, is scheduled to hit the theatres on March 8, 2024. A Quiet Place: The Game, surprise surprise, is a video game adaptation of the three-piece anthology, and a standalone episode that will feature an entirely new story and characters from the same world. And if what Paramount Pictures is saying turns out to be bang on the money, then the game will “let fans experience the tension of the films with a level of immersion they’ve never felt before.”

Rather frustratingly, both EP1T0ME and Paramount have kept true to the theme of the movie since making it official back in 2021, in the fact that details have been awfully scarce, and the overall progression has been, well, quiet. Too quiet, as it goes. As for what this means for the future of the IP remains unclear. In spite of this, here’s what we do actually know about the game so far, including its story and gameplay features.


Other than it being set in the same timeline as the movies that released back in 2018 and 2021, not a whole lot is known about the game’s premise. What we do know, however, is that it’ll feature an “untold story”—a chapter that will no doubt bundle in a new roster of characters and, with a little luck, new enemies to encounter. Aside from that, it’s really anybody’s guess as to what the forthcoming episode will entail.

To state the obvious, there is the movie plot line to go on, which at least gives us a vague idea of what the game will be about. But in case you’ve yet to catch up on the series, then perhaps now’s the time to get ahead, more so now that the third movie is on the horizon.


A Quiet Place isn’t exactly known for its high-octane action sequences and explosive Michael Bay-like drama. On the contrary, the entire saga is rather subtle, and spends the majority of its screen time running through the emotions of a post-apocalyptic downfall in nothing but silence and gestures. Knowing this, it’s safe to say that the game will most likely teeter more towards stealth-based gameplay, with perhaps a hint of open world exploration to boot. This is entirely speculation on our part, but it seems only likely, given the theme of the movies and what have you.


Remember Evil Dead: The Game? Well, turns out the guys that build that asymmetrical horror adaptation will be heading up A Quiet Place, too. Does this mean it could run in a similar vein gameplay-wise? Honestly, who knows at this point? It is worth taking into account, though, what with the series having plenty of survivors and villains to build a PvP or PvE sort of thing. Could it be that it’ll be more procedurally generated maps and team-based tasks, similar to those featured in Dead by Daylight? Maybe.

Unfortunately, in spite of all the hype the adaptation has generated, Saber Interactive has actually been rather quiet as of late. In fact, the last we heard, the game was due out at some stage in 2022. As for what happened there is anybody’s guess. Plus, with little to no fresh posts on its social feed, we can’t even say for certain what its current situation is. Whatever the case, here’s hoping we catch wind of an update before year’s end.


Trailer? What trailer? Although it probably should’ve received something of the sort long before now, the fact is, A Quiet Place: The Game is still without any form of announcement trailer or in-game screenshots. If this changes, then chances are the trailer will be teased over on the studio’s chosen streaming handle.

Release Date, Platforms & Editions

So, if it didn’t release in 2022 as planned, then when will it release? Well, that’s just it. As it currently stands, we don’t actually know when it’ll launch. That said, if we had to hazard a guess, then we’d say the likelihood of it coming out in tandem with A Quiet Place: Day One seems plausible at best. If this is the case, then we can pretty much go ahead and strike out a hopeful 2023 launch, and instead set our sights on an early 2024 one at the earliest.

It goes without saying that, without a trolly of details to support it, we can’t really speculate on the versions that’ll come out, let alone the platforms that they’ll reach, either. For what it’s worth, though, it seems highly likely that an Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC port will be in the cards. It’s doubtful that ex-gen hardware will be in line to receive the same treatment, however.

If you’re interested in staying in the loop while the devs continue to iron out the creases, then be sure to check in with the game’s official social feed for all the latest updates here. We’ll be sure to let you know just as soon as EP1T0ME Studios shed light on the actual release window. Until then, it’s merely the case of withstanding the endearing radio silence, if you’ll pardon the pun.


So, what’s your take? Will you be picking up a copy of A Quiet Place when it eventually releases on consoles and PC? Let us know your thoughts over on our socials here.
