Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Dark Descent was easily the scariest game to come out in the past few years. It proved once again that indie games could easily outdo big budget releases in the survival horror genre. As such, a sequel to the game has been eagerly anticipated, but gamers will now have to wait a bit longer.
The horrifying sequel is a collaboration between Frictional Games and The Chinese Room (creator of Dear Esther). While Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs was originally supposed to come out on Halloween 2012, it has sadly been pushed back till 2013.
“It’s just slid back to early 2013. The quality of the game is the absolute first, last, and always with this development, and we felt it could do with a few more months’ work to make sure that’s really going to happen.”
I guess we can’t really complain too much if the delay will ultimately make the game a better experience. Though playing a new Amnesia game on Halloween night really would of made for one frightening experience… on second thought, I think I can wait.
