Observer System Redux Coming to Next Gen, Full Reveal Soon
It seems the newly revealed Observer System Redux will be a remastered version of the cyberpunk horror game starring the late Rutger Hauer.
The cyberpunk horror game Observer looks like it is getting a makeover. Bloober Team announced Observer System Redux is coming to next-gen video game platforms.
Announced with a newly created Twitter account for the game, Observer System Redux seems to be a remake of the original sci-fi horror game. The hashtag for Rutger Hauer is the giveaway, as the actor passed away last year. In a tweet, it is revealed this will be coming to next-gen platforms and the reveal is “in progress.”

The tweet is paired with a brief teaser trailer. It really doesn’t show anything that isn’t already known about Observer System Redux. As indicated in the tweet above, the teaser ends saying to “stay tuned” for the next-gen reveal.
Observer originally launched for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2017; it released for Switch last year. As mentioned earlier, it is a cyberpunk horror game by Bloober Team. Starring Blade Runner’s Rutger Hauer, you’ll play as Daniel Lazarski, an Observer who can hack people’s brain implants as a method of interrogation.
Bloober Team is a video game development studio based in Poland. While its catalog spans several different genres, its most recent releases are within the psychological horror genre. Beginning with Layers of Fear, the studio has launched four horror games since that 2016 launch, all of which saw moderate critical success.

It’s a game you have to talk to somebody about, that will make you reflect, and assault your saneness.”
