THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive announced that the upcoming Horror game, Alone in the Dark has been delayed after it initially was planned to release in October 2023. Part of the reason they delayed this game is to avoid competing with Alan Wake II and Spider-Man 2. Alone in the Dark will now ship on January 16, 2024, and this allows the development team to perfect the gaming experience.
“Our intention is to avoid competing with the wake of Alan’s epic release and to evade the dazzling skyline of cities adorned by the graceful swings of Spider-Man. We aim to truly remain as Alone in the Dark as possible. To honor this, the spine-chilling horror game has been rescheduled to unveil its horrors on January 16th, 2024. This extension will serve a dual purpose: not only will it permit us to meticulously perfect the gaming experience, but it will also grant us the opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in the remarkable releases of October.”
