Speaking in an interview with Bloodydisgusting.com, Red Barrels co-founder Philippe Morin has confirmed that he and his team were currently working on Outlast 2, the sequel to this year’s hit survival horror game. According to Morin, the new game will take place in the same world as the first game, but also that it will feature new characters and locations as well. He would go on to add that Red Barrels is a fairly small indie studio, boasting only twelve members in total, and that it would take sometime for them to complete the game, adding that he hopes the wait will be worth it in the end.
An intense first-person survival horror experience developed by Red Barrels, an indie game company composed of members who had previously worked on such high-profile titles as Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, and Uncharted, Outlast launched to critical acclaim earlier this year for the Xbox One, PC, and PS4. Noted by critics for its exemplary use of horror and creepy environs, the game currently holds an overall Metacritic score of 80% for the Xbox version of the game, and a score a point or two lower for the PC and PS4 versions.
