THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive have decided to delay Alone in the Dark to March 20, 2024. It was scheduled to launch in January 2024 after being delayed from October.
In a press release from the publisher, THQ Nordic mentions that it would have been stressful for the team to get the game out in January due to the Christmas season.
“The well-being of the teams is a top priority, and both companies want to avoid any potential crunch over the Christmas holidays. Furthermore, THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive want to ensure that the game not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the community, especially with the outstanding performances of Hollywood stars David and Jodie as the main protagonists.”
This rebooted version of Alone in the Dark will let players experience a haunting 1920s story from the perspective of either of the game’s two protagonists, Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood. Whoever you choose together, you’ll go through the Derceto Manor, a home for the mentally ill. It won’t be a friendly stroll as players explore environments, fight monsters, solve puzzles, uncover the uneasy truth of Derceto Manor, and ultimately uncover the plot of rising evil.
“We understand that many people are eagerly awaiting the release, but your patience will be rewarded,” the note ends.
