Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs release date pushed to 2013

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is being pushed back to 2013.

The scheduled release date for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, follow up to PC horror game Amnesia: The Dark Descent, is pushed back from this Halloween to 2013, creative director Dan Pinchbeck told GameZone.

"The quality of the game is the absolute first, last, and always with this development, and we felt it could do with a few more months' work to make sure that's really going to happen," said Pinchbeck.

Unlike Frictional Games' The Dark Descent, A Machine for Pigs is being developed in collaboration with thechineseroom due to time constraints for the original studio. The title takes place in a Victorian-based setting and follows a wealthy industrialist in the wake of a family tragedy, suffering from a disease contracted while exploring ruins in Mesoamerica.

thechineseroom worked previously on experimental first-person title Dear Esther, developed when the studio was still a research project at the University of Portsmouth.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent was first released to Steam in 2010. A Machine for Pigs is considered an "indirect" sequel.
