Speaking of deep trauma, Red Barrels also said it's working on something else Outlast-related. First, the studio addressed fan requests for DLC for the most recent entry in the series, Outlast II, which is most likely since the first game received post-launch DLC through its "Whistleblower" add-on.
Outlast and Outlast II are coming to Switch in the first quarter of 2018, developer Red Barrels announced. While the first Outlast was made with the idea of a DLC in mind, that was not the case for Outlast 2. Outlast 2 was created to make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what's outside the maze.
However, the studio expressed that "we will, at some point, make an Outlast 3 and answers will be given", and instead said that the team is now "working on something a lot of you have been asking for".
"It will be a distinct experience", developer teases. We can't say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work.
Although Red Barrels has plans for Outlast 3 (though not DLC for Outlast 2), the spin-off is the priority for now because of the team's determination to "create unique experiences and take risks". We will, at some point, make an Outlast 3 and answers will be given. We've considered many options, but none of them felt appropriate for a DLC. It takes places right after the events of the second game and offers some insight into the events in the game. Until then, be sure to check out Outlast Trinity which contains both games on Xbox One if you love getting scared senseless.
