Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs pushed back to Q2 2013

Horror game publisher Frictional Games is pushing Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs back to Q2 2013, it announced on its blog today.

"How come a game meant for Halloween 2012 has been delayed for so long?" the Frictional Games blog post asks. "Originally we thought it would be a short, experimental game set in the universe of Amnesia, but thechineseroom had a vision that was bigger than that."

According to the blog, as Brighton-based developers thechineseroom continued working on Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, the game outgrew its short experiment intentions and the studio ended up creating a "fully fledged" game.

Thomas Grip, the studio's co-founder, wrote in a blog post in September last year about Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, "hope is that this will create a very special experience, creating horror in a much more disturbing way."

A Machine For Pigs is the sequel to the horror game Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which saw release in 2010.
