The game has been in development since 2014, and after being re-announced in 2016, it was slated for a release last year. The game was then delayed into 2018, although a specific launch frame wasn’t provided.

"We are happy that Focus entrusted us with the development of a videogame adaptation of the legendary RPG Call of Cthulh”, Cyanide Studio CEO Patrick Pligersdorffer said in 2016. “As long-time fans of the license, working with longtime partner publisher Focus Home Interactive on such an original and exciting project is, once again, a privilege. We hope to offer fans the game they've long been waiting for."

"We are deeply honored to be partnering with Cyanide again”, Focus Home Interactive President Cédric Lagarrigue said. “They've grown alongside us for the past 10 years, to become today one of the best independent developers in Europe. With titles such as Styx: Master of Shadows and the Blood Bowl series, they've proved their creativity and ability to offer strong gaming experiences in original worlds. Cyanide has been wanting to make a Call of Cthulhu adaptation for years. They now hold all the cards to create a game that will please fans of the Cthulhu mythos, as well as players eager for rich and original gaming experiences."
