Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Delayed Yet Again

The sequel to Amnesia has been delayed. Titled Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the game’s release has been pushed back to “late Summer.”

Originally slated for a Q2 2012 release, the game’s co-developers, Frictional Games, stated on the forums that they would be unable to have the game ready for launch by the previously stipulated release window. “We have not set the exact day yet. You can however make good use of the weather outside this summer and look forward to gaming with the piggies as the summer comes to an end.”

“We are working away as fast as we can, it has to take the time it takes. We have no rush,” wrote Frictional’s Jens Nilsson.

The game is currently being developed in conjunction with Dear Esther developer thechineseroom.

“We are optimizing, tweaking and in general putting the [Frictional Games] expertise to good use,” he wrote. ”[thechineseroom] keeps putting in work as well. There are companies working on the translations (will launch with 9 languages in addition to original English). The porting guys are porting away. Deals are being made. Things are prepared for launching the game through more online stores than any other FG game before. In general occupied with all things related.”

Well that’s unfortunate.

Still, I’d rather see a game get delayed so it can come out really good than a rushed out hackjob.
