Outlast 2 is old news, Outlast 3 coming “at some point”
A whole bunch of Outlast news is here for fans of the intense survival horror series. A post on the game’s Facebook page talked about DLC plans for the second title, a VR game, and the third installment in the series.
Short of a port to Nintendo Switch coming next year, Red Barrels said that Outlast 2 will be receiving no more DLC.
“About the future, many of you have been requesting a DLC. While the first Outlast was made with the idea of a DLC in mind, that was not the case for Outlast 2. We’ve considered many options, but none of them felt appropriate for a DLC. Outlast 2 was created to make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what’s outside the maze.”
The Facebook post adds, “We will, at some point, make an Outlast 3 and answers will be given”.
Something new, not a direct sequel to Outlast, is currently in the works, though. “Currently we’re working on something a lot of you have been asking for… It won’t be a sequel to Outlast or Outlast 2, but it will be a distinct experience set in the Outlast universe. 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.”
Due to how many games are getting VR spinoffs currently, this might be what the post is hinting at, but nothing is for sure at this point. We’ll update you once we know more.
