The Outlast franchise will head to Nintendo Switch in the first quarter of 2018, developer Red Barrels has announced.
Announcing the news on its Facebook page, Red Barrels also confirmed that it is currently developing a new title set in the Outlast universe. “Currently we’re working on something a lot of you have been asking for… It won’t be a sequel to Outlast or Outlast II, but it will be a distinct experience set in the Outlast universe,” said the Red Barrels team on Facebook. “We can’t say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work. Like I mentioned, we strive to be risk-takers and this one is a pretty big challenge. If all goes well, we’ll soon be able to reveal more.”
The studio also confirmed that it will make Outlast 3 at some point in the future, but gave little information regarding a third title in the terrifying survival horror series.
For the record, we loved both Outlast titles. Earlier this year, Daniel Pitt described Outlast 2 as being a “nerve-shredding masterpiece of horror design,” scoring the game 9 out of 10. [Full review]
