Outlast II has been delayed for a more enjoyable experience. The massively successful predecessor, Outlast, is one of the most beloved indie games within recent history. Released in 2013, Red Barrels seemed not likely to make a sequel, but with how successful Outlast was, they decided to make Outlast II. Currently, Outlast II one of the most hyped horror games of the year. Sadly, Red Barrels came out today and said how Outlast II is delayed until the first quarter of 2017. They didn’t exactly say what the cause of the delay is, but we can infer it’s in need of a few polishes from what they say:

 “We want you to know that we listen to your feedback, we see your excitement and we know you care about our work,” the studio wrote. “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.”

They also mention how they believe the game is in need of more testing:

“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 [whose] limits haven’t been tested to the extreme.”
