Returnal DLC Possibly Being Teased by Developer Housemarque

An image shared from Returnal's developer Housemarque on Twitter has fans speculating that a DLC announcement may be on the way.

Housemarque tweeted the mysterious image on the morning of November 26 alongside the text, "Atropos…? #Returnal." For those unaware, Atropos is the planet where Returnal takes place.

This caught the attention of many across the internet, as it doesn't appear to be anything found in the base game of Returnal. Additionally, since Atropos has a question mark after it, it's possible this could be a whole new world Selene (or another character?) has to explore. It also could be that a catastrophic event has done something drastic to Atropos to cause Selene to question where she is.

Following the Tweet, Housemarque senior narrative designer Eevi Korhonen Quote Tweeted the mysterious post, saying, "We filmed something really amazing today. Hope we get to share more soon!"

Could this mean we will get a new trailer for DLC or expansion in the near future, possibly at The Game Awards on December 9? Could it instead be for some type of ad or live-action trailer? Hopefully, we won't have to wait too long to find out.

While Housemarque has yet to release any DLC for Returnal, it has said it was working on "new content and updates and fixes." Recently, it received its 2.0 update that added not only a long-awaited save system, but also photo mode.

After Housemarque released Returnal, Sony announced it was purchasing the company behind other such games as Super Stardust HD, Resogun, Dead Nation, Alienation, and more.

In our Returnal review, we said, "Its roguelike runs are too long and it needs a way to save in the middle of them, but Returnal's third-person shooter action, clever story, and atmosphere are excellent."
