Red Barrels' horror sequel is no longer coming this Fall as originally announced. Instead, Outlast II has been pushed back into 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," said the company in a Facebook post.
"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 whose limits haven't been tested to the extreme," the developer added.
Outlast II is about the harrowing journey of cameraman Blake Langermann in the wilds of the Arizona desert. Langermann and his journalist wife went out into the desert to cover the story of a young kidnapped girl. Together they run afoul of a desert cult and Blake has to find his wife.
