The sequel to one of the scariest games ever created, Outlast has now been delayed according to the games official Facebook page. Outlast 2 was expected to make an impressive splash this Fall, however now that is not the case.
Straight from the mouth of developer Red Barrels:
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.
In Outlast 2 you play Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife, Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch. You’re following a trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe. The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert and according to Red Barrels, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do.
We cannot wait to torture ourselves once again at the demented development hands of Red Barrel.
