Outlast developer Red Barrels have announced a sequel to their super scary game Outlast.
In an interview with BloodyDisgusting, the co-founder of Red Barrels stated that the team feel as though they are ready to tackle a sequel. However, they expressed the need for patience to fans as the Red Barrels team is a small team and it may take some time for the sequel to arrive. Hopefully it will be well worth the wait.
The original Outlast, which we reviewed here back in February this year, along with the Whistleblower DLC, took place in the Mount Massive Asylum and had you take the role of a journalist and former employee of a mysterious company respectively. Players made their way through the insane Asylum to uncover a mass conspiracy of grim and horrific experiments.
Redbarrels have stated that the sequel will follow the same formula as the original Outlast but will feature new characters, setting and story.
Personally I think this is a great idea and will help to keep the original Outlast solidified in its own mysticism and originality, while the sequel will give fans of the original more to wet our horror appetites…. and more reason to stock up on underwear.
We will keep you posted on the news of Outlast 2 as and when we have it.
