Looks like you’ll have to wait a little longer to have Red Barrels scare the bejeezus out of you again. The developer posted an updated on Facebook earlier today to address the postponement. Nothing too out of the ordinary though as they just wanted to focus on making Outlast 2 the best game it can be. Originally the sequel was planned for release this Fall on the PlayStation 4.
“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.”
