Outlast 2 Confirmed By The Developers


Just in time for the Halloween season, the co-founder of Red Barrels, developers of the horror hit Outlast, has confirmed the development of Outlast 2. This was revealed in an interview with Bloody Disgusting, when asked about what’s next for the studio’s pipeline.

“After shipping the XB1 version of Outlast, we took some time to analyze our situation and we quickly realized we had at least another horror game in us,” Red Barrels co-founder Philippe Morin explained. “So, yes, we are working on Outlast 2. The game will be a survival horror experience and it will take place in the same universe as Outlast, but it will have different characters and a different setting. We might go back to Mount Massive Asylum one day, but for now we have new ideas and themes we’d like to explore and we think we’re cooking up something special. We’re still a small indie studio (12 people), so we’ll need a little bit of time to ship our next game, but hopefully it will be worth it.”

So there you have it; Outlast 2 is in the works. While the studio is tight-lipped on whether or not you’ll be able to defend yourself against attackers in the follow-up, I’d hope that at least a small concession in that regard can be made. It never made sense to me that someone investigating a psychiatric institution where monstrous creatures are roaming about is more focused on filming their death than at the very least picking up something and defending themselves. I guess that it’s whether you’re more a fan of the fear in flight or more favorable to the gameplay of fight for where your preference lies.

Outlast 2 has no confirmed release date or window at this time.
