Alone in the Dark’s reboot has been delayed again
THQ Nordic has announced that Pieces Interactive's reimagining of the original 1992 Alone in the Dark has been pushed back to March 2024.
The publisher confirmed the delay in a new press release, stating that the game's release date would be pushed back from January 16, 2024, to March 20, 2024, marking the game's second delay after missing its original October 2023 launch.
The delay is said to be to "avoid any potential crunch over the Christmas holidays," with both the publisher and its developer Pieces wanting to ensure the title "not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the community." This is an understandable decision, especially given the industry's current reputation for releasing unfinished games while ignoring the well-being of the developers behind the project.
Alone in the Dark stars David Harbour and Jodie Comer as dual protagonists Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood as they explore the secrets of Derceto Manor in their own unique storylines. Pieces has already released a free prologue for the game, which can be downloaded on PC and consoles.
