If you’ve been wondering when you’d be able to get your hands on Call of Cthulhu then wonder no more. Today, developer Cyanide and publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that the investigative RPG will be hitting digital storefronts and retail stores in just a few months, on October 30, 2018, just in time for Halloween, which of course is no coincidence.
