The VP further stated that BBC’s relationship with Supermassive was and continues to be good,” but that no further partnerships on projects are planned at this time.

Joffe also added that, despite the cancellations, more Doctor Who games are on the way from BBC.

Supermassive’s managing director Pete Samuels talked to the games site as well, explaining that the team is still working on horror title Until Dawn and that production is going really well.”

The game is set to release at some point on the PS3, but as of yet there’s been no word on exactly when that will be.
