We have some scary news for Outlast fans: the sequel to the hit horror game from 2013 has been pushed back from a Fall 2016 release to the first quarter of 2017. Red Barrels, the developers of the game, took to its Facebook page to announce the reasoning behind the delay.

“We had to make a difficult decision recently. After weighing our options we’ve decided to postpone Outlast 2’s release until Q1 of 2017.

We want you to know that we listen to your feedback, we see your excitement and we know you care about our work. Our mission as an indie studio is to deliver to you the best, most terrifying, most fulfilling experiences possible. That’s why we’re taking just a little bit more time to make sure our vision for Outlast 2 is in no way compromised and is the experience you deserve.

This is not the type of news we ever want to deliver, but we are so fully committed to the world we’ve built and to our awesome community that we could not, in good conscience, release a game who’s limits haven’t been tested to the extreme.

Thank you for understanding. We promise Outlast 2 will scare the crap out of you.”

The first Outlast received average reviews among critics, but was a big hit among horror game fans and Let’s Players alike. The sequel Outlast 2 will launch early 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

l love to play games and write stuff about them. I can't play something and not tell anyone how I feel about it. Call it a sickness, because it is.
