Observer 2 likely announced in creepy trailer from Bloober Team

It looks like it’s going to be a good year for scary games: Bloober Team may have just announced Observer 2 in a spooky new trailer.

The trailer is a short 30-second video showing an “incoming call” with dial tones over a glitchy interface. A bunch of code scrolls downward in the background. The tweet has the hashtags #cyberpunk and #horrorgame, lending further credence that this is indeed a second Observer game of some sort.

A Twitter user managed to isolate binary code at the top of the screen and translate it. We transcribed the code and worked it out to be the following:

“01000100 01100001 01101110 01101001 01100101 01101100 00101100

01100001 01110010 01100101 01111001 01101111 01110101

01110100 01101000 01100101 01110010 01100101 00111111″

Run it through a binary to ASCII converter, and you get the following translation:

Daniel, are you there?

Daniel Lazarski is the name of the protagonist from the first game, so it seems like this is a pretty strong indication that whatever Bloober Team just announced is somehow related to the Observer universe. Hopefully, we’ll find out more about Observer 2 soon.
