Horror game publisher Frictional Games is pushing back to Q2 2013, it : A Machine For Pigsannounced 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: 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 , which saw release in 2010.
