Alone in the Dark remake delayed
Adventure game chooses to escape busy launch window
THQ Nordic has announced that Alone in the Dark remake has been delayed.
Originally planned for release late this October, the horror adventure will now launch on January 16th, 2024.
The developers were honest with their reasons. In a statement, they said: "Our intention is to avoid competing with the wake of Alan's epic release and to evade the dazzling skyline of cities adorned by the graceful swings of Spider-Man. We aim to truly remain as Alone in the Dark as possible. This extension will serve a dual purpose: not only will it permit us to meticulously perfect the gaming experience, but it will also grant us the opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in the remarkable releases of October."
Alone in the Dark is a re-imagination of the original trilogy from 1990s, promising a new story and mythical places to explore. Deep in the 1920’s south, Emily Hartwood’s uncle has gone missing. Together with private investigator Edward Carnby, she embarks on a journey to Derceto Manor, a home for the mentally ill where something is lurking.
Alone in the Dark is developed by Pieces Interactive in Sweden and will be coming to PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.
