Horror sequel Outlast 2 delayed until next year by Red Barrels

Red Barrels has decided to push back the release date of their horror sequel Outlast 2.

Originally planned to be released this year, gamers are going to have to wait longer to be terrified. The developer simply needs more time to scare your pants off and it’s now not coming out until 2017.

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.

At least Tim will be relieved, he was pencilled in to review this after crapping himself in the first game.
