Focus Home Interactive, the publisher for Call of Cthulhu has not officially stated anything regarding a release date, but a date has appeared on the Steam Store's listing for the game. Steam usually doesn't publish release dates for games unless the date has been finalized, so we should expect an official announcement from either the publisher or developer (Cyanide Studios) in the coming weeks.

If the Steam date is correct, this will mean the Lovecraftian horror themed title will be releasing on Halloween, October 31st. Quite a convenient time to release Call of Cthulhu, perhaps the developers are hoping for that little bit more extra immersion Halloween will give, as players jump onto their harrowing title for the first time.

If you have missed out on what Call of Cthulhu is, the title is based in 1924 and around a private investigator called Edward Pierce. Pierce is sent to an isolated Darkwater island to investigate the deaths of the Hawkins family. This then results in Pierce being caught up in cultists, conspiracies, cosmic horrors and what seems like the unspeakable.
