An official blog post
from Frictional Games now says that the publisher's Amnesia: The Dark Descent
followup, subtitled A Machine for Pigs
, is due out not in "early 2013," as last stated
, but in "Q2 2013," which means in April of this year or later. That's another slight delay for the title, which was originally scheduled for release back at Halloween last year.
What's the holdup? Frictional says that A Machine for Pigs
was originally planned as "a short, experimental game set in the universe of Amnesia," but as developers thechineseroom
filled out the project, it became apparent that the "short experiment" was becoming "a fully fledged Amnesia
game." So Frictional has made the decision to do it up right, which means another few months of waiting for fans. Frictional also says pricing and availability information is coming soon, so we'll keep an eye out for that.
