Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs developer The Chinese Room has been hard at work on the upcoming PS4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture in collaboration with Sony Santa Monicaand today they took to Twitter to give an update on development and casting.

In London tomorrow at @SideUK continuing casting for #rapture – got an amazing cast so far, can’t wait to start rehearsals.

We’ve already dropped some audition voices into the game to get a sense of them and it’s amazing how it transforms

They also announced that former Crytek UK Art Director Ben Jane has joined the team in the same role:

We’ve also got a big announcement – Ben Jane, ex-Crytek UK AD has joined us as our new Art Director. We’re INCREDIBLY excited.

Jane is a true veteran in the industry, having worked at Crytek since 2009 first as Senior Artist, then as Lead Artist and finally as Art Director since 2005, when the company was still named Free Radical Design.

His move to The Chinese Room makes perfect sense, considering that Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is developed in CryEngine 3. The game still doesn’t have a firm release date, but it’s supposed to hit the PS4 in 2015.
