Atari has announced that a new instalment in classic survival horror franchise Alone in the Dark is currently in development for the Xbox 360.

The game, which is scheduled to make its debut at the X05 event in Amsterdam this week, is being developed by first Infogrames subsidiary Eden Games. Previous titles developed by the studio include V-Rally 1, 2 and 3, Need for Speed: Porsche and Kya: Dark Lineage.

"Alone in the Dark will look and play amazing on Xbox 360," said Xbox corporate VP Peter Moore.

"The level of environmental interaction and graphical detail achievable on the system is staggering and will allow Eden to produce a game wholly worthy of the 'next-generation' tag, and provide an intense and voracious gaming experience."

Atari Europe marketing director Cyril Voiron added: "Alone in the Dark is a massive global franchise that has been at the forefront of the survival genre since its inception."

"We are supremely confident that Eden Games will deliver a visceral and gripping experience that will establish the Alone in the Dark franchise as the leader of the next-generation survival genre."
