THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive have announced a second delay to Alone In The Dark, pushing the horror game to March 20th, 2024.
The game, which was originally set to launch in October but was bumped to January 2024 to avoid a slew of AAA releases, has once again been delayed, but this time to prioritise the health of the development studio and to avoid Christmas crunch.
In a joint statement with Pieces Interactive on X, formerly Twitter, THQ Nordic said: “The well-being of our team is a top priority, and both companies want to avoid any potential crunch over the holidays – this is why we have decided to move the release date to March 20, 2024.”
The game, a remake of the 1992 classic survival horror title, follows Emily Hartwood (Played by Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer) and investigator Edward Carnby (Played by Stranger Things’ David Harbour) as the pair search for Hartwood’s uncle after his disappearance.
The search requires them to explore the Derceto manor, a home for the mentally ill, where monsters will need to be fought, puzzles solved, and frightening truths discovered.
A limited Collector’s Edition of the game was announced back in August, and it’s available to pre-order now.
Alone In The Dark will now launch on March 20th, 2024, for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series consoles.
