Red Barrels have given an update on the status of Outlast 2, and the news might be disappointing to fans of the first-person survival horror series.
In a statement on Facebook, the independent development studio announced that “after weighing our options we’ve decided to postpone Outlast 2’s release until Q1 of 2017.”
The reason behind the decision is to give the team a little more time to ensure the final game is “in no way compromised and is the experience [fans] deserve.”
The studio assure us that Outlast 2 is still going to “scare the crap out of you”, but you’ll just have to wait a little longer for that to happen.
The sequel to the 2013 indie hit takes place in the countryside, instead of the psychiatric asylum of the original game.
Outlast 2 was originally scheduled to arrive sometime later this year, and you can check out our preview of the game at PAX East 2016 right here.
No specific release date has been given in Q1 of 2017, but the title has been confirmed to be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
For everything to do with Outlast, keep your eyes peeled on Twinfinite.
