‘Outlast 2’ Is In The Works, Features New Characters & Setting

Mount Massive Asyum is taking a back seat, for now.

With the huge success that indie horror game Outlast achieved, it’s no wonder that there have been many questions regarding whether or not a sequel is coming. Well, developer Red Barrels has confirmed in an interview with Bloody Disgusting that more Outlast is definitely on the way.

Red Barrels co-founder Philippe Morin said the following:

“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. So, yes, we are working on Outlast 2.”

 

“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.” It is confirmed that Outlast 2 will be taking place in the same universe as the original game.”

 

“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, it seems it will still be quite a while before actual information or a release date is revealed, but this will certainly put a horrified grin on many a horror gamer’s face.
