Outlast developers working on 'distinct experience' set in the same universe

They're terrifying because they make you feel absolutely helpless. Gamers have been asking for an expansion to Outlast 2 since it came out all those months ago but it looks like developer Red Barrels doesn't have any such plans. However, there is another project in the works that promises to be a "distinct experience". In a post on Facebook, the developer revealed their plans for the future of the franchise.

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... We will, at some point, make an Outlast 3 and answers will be given... 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.

It's great to see that Outlast isn't going anywhere. Hopefully this new game in the series will live up to people's expectations because it doesn't sound like a traditional horror game. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the title. Until then, be sure to check out Outlast Trinity which contains both games on Xbox One if you love getting scared senseless.
