Developer Bloober Team produced multiple successful titles in the psychological horror genre that sat well with the community and received critical acclaim from multiple outlets, namely Layers of Fear and Observer. The latter was on the receiving end of a new announcement earlier today.
Observer originally debuted in August 2015 for PC and consoles, and was later ported to Nintendo Switch in 2019. The game follows the story of Observer detective Daniel Lazarski as he unravels the mystery behind his son's disappearance in an extremely eerie building. Players get to utilize the futuristic augmented reality, scans, and interrogation techniques to make sure you extract all the information you need.
The studio took to Twitter to announce Observer System Redux accompanied by a brief teaser trailer that didn't include much information on the content. Towards the end of the trailer, it presents the title as a confirmed release for next-generation consoles as the trailer suggests.

Following the announcement, community members and Gematsu managed to catch what probably is a mistake on the studio's part where they updated their Facebook cover photo with an April 16 date for Observer System Redux's official reveal. However, shortly after, it was pulled down and replaced with a generic "Stay Tuned" header and reaffirming the next-generation release.
Just a note: Looks like the Facebook page that confirmed an April 16 reveal has been updated with a simple "Stay Tuned." Fortunately, we saved the image before it was removed. pic.twitter.com/pfeS1mwv8l— Gematsu (@gematsucom) April 8, 2020
