The first Outlast was really a cool title that seemed to bring a high quality horror game back to the forefront of the industry. The game was spooky, jumpy and more or less everything you needed out of horror game set in a comically overindulgent insane asylum trope.
That is why I was quite excited about Outlast 2, especially for the now outdoors-y, southern America setting it was promising. It was set for later this year, but sadly, that's not going to be. It's been announced that the title will hit at the beginning of next year now.
In a Facebook post, developer Red Barrels said:
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.
As always delays are good. While it would've been a great Halloween addition, a better game is a better game and you can't complain with that.
