Red Barrels had planned to release their survival horror sequel, Outlast II, by the end of the year. Unfortunately, the developer recently hit a snag and has decided to push the game’s release back to Early 2017. Writing on Facebook, a member of the development team said this delay is to make sure they can create the best game possible:
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.
While this news is surely disappointing, Red Barrels ended their announcement in the best possible way… by promising that Outlast II will “scare the crap out of you” when it’s finally released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
