THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive have announced that Alone in the Dark has been delayed to January 16, 2024 in an effort to avoid an already-crowded October window, which sees the likes of Alan Wake 2 and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 competing for your cash.
Speaking in a press release, the companies revealed that not only will the delay allow Alone in the Dark to avoid a busy month, but also the extra time will towards further polishing the game.
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.
Alone in the Dark is due out on January 16, 2024 for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S.
