Red Barrels took to the Outlast Facebook page to announce that "Outlast 2" won't be making its 2016 target. They are now aiming to release in the first quarter of 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.
As usual with these delays, giving the gaming community the best experience they can give them is Red Barrels' ultimate goal. The news of the delay also states that Red Barrels is listening to feedback, so they're taking that into account in addition to what they want to improve.
