Red Barrels has announced that the release date for its horror game, Outlast 2, has been pushed back to Q1 2017. The team decided to delay the game in order to further polish it and deliver a product that it is proud of.
As the team wrote on the game’s official FB page:
“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.”
Outlast 2 promises to be a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. Back in April, we got our first look at it as Gamespot shared two videos, showing 10 minutes of gameplay footage.
