The Astronauts, die Entwickler von "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter", haben im Rahmen den Game Awards 2017 mit "Witchfire" einen düsteren First-Person-Shooter im Fantasy-Setting angekündigt. Der Trailer liefert erste Impressionen. Ausser dem PC wurden noch keine anderen Plattformen oder ein Release-Zeitraum enthüllt. Wie bei "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter" kommt eine Photogrammetrie-Technik zum Einsatz, um reale Objekte in 3D zu scannen.

Das Statement zur frühen Enthüllung des Spiels: "The reason we're launching the teaser so early is simply to let everyone know that we're alive and kicking, and how radically different this new project of ours is compared to our previous game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. That change in direction isn't anything new for the core team, though. The three co-owners of The Astronauts were also the co-owners of People Can Fly, as well as the creative leads behind shooters like Painkiller and Bulletstorm. While Witchfire is also a shooter, we're aiming to make a game unlike anything we have done in the past, both in tone and in game mechanics."
