Although the horror genre has become exponentially more popular in recent months, the traditional scarcity of horror sequels remains intact. This makes the impending release of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs all the more exciting, despite its history of delays that could put even Rayman Legends to shame.
Succeeding the runaway success of Amnesia: Dark Descent, the 2010 adventure title from Frictional Games, A Machine for Pigs is being developed by The Chinese Room, which had originally announced the title for a Q3 2012 release. However, after delays in July 2012, February 2013, and most recently June 2013, the sequel seemed like a lost cause.
Luckily, The Chinese Room today announced the “final” release date for the PC-only game: September 10th. Pre-orders are live for $15.99, offering a small discount from the launch price of $19.99.
