The Chinese Room will launch Everybody's Gone to the Rapture on Windows PC, the studio confirmed. The company announced the release on Twitter today — while also assuaging fears that the news was an April Fools' joke.
It's been the worst-kept secret, but it's now official... Rapture will be coming to PC! No release date yet, but we'll keep you posted!— The Chinese Room (@ChineseRoom) April 1, 2016
Since Everybody's Gone to the Rapture hit PlayStation 4 last August, fans have found suggestions that a PC port was in the works. An entry for the slow-burning post-apocalyptic game appeared on Steam's database, including banner art. Most recently, an AMD driver update suggested that a PC release was imminent.
The Chinese Room, known for narrative-driven games like Dear Esther, lost its co-head Jessica Curry last October, following its latest game's launch. She detailed how its development pushed her to the brink in an emotional open letter. The company continues work on its next project: Total Dark, an isometric role-playing game.
