Fans of the survival horror game Outlast will be thrilled to know that Red Barrels has confirmed that Outlast 3 will indeed happen.

The news came along with Red Barrels announcement that Outlast and Outlast 2 are coming to Switch in 2018. In a Facebook post, the developers gave everyone a summarized outline about the plans they have for the Outlast franchise.

First things first, Red Barrels confirmed that there will be no DLC for Outlast 2, unlike its prequel. Although they’ve considered many options, none of them felt appropriate to be added in the second game. As they said, Outlast 2 was created to let players feel like they are a rat in a maze, without any idea of what’s waiting for them outside the labyrinth. With that said, the game felt complete, and a DLC felt unnecessary.

But what makes the post more exciting is that fact that they mentioned something about the sequel; they “will, at some point, make an Outlast 3.” While waiting, fans can check out The Murkoff Account’s epilogue, a comic from Red Barrels which takes place right after the events of the second game. The story also offers some insights into the events in the game.

Lastly, Red Barrels also confirmed that they are working on something a lot of the fans have been asking for. It isn’t the sequel to Outlast or Outlast 2, but something that will give them a distinct experience in the Outlast universe. For now, they can’t say anything more about its development aside from that fact that its development is said to be “pretty challenging.” But if all goes well in the project, Red Barrels assured that they will reveal more about the project.

With that said, all we can do now is wait and see what Red Barrels has in store for us. But for the meantime, we’re probably going to re-play Outlast and Outlast 2 on our gaming laptops while waiting for the new game to be released.

  1. I think in these outlast games, they should at least have the character, have a weapon or something to hurt and kill the bad guys.

      1. I loved outlast trinity that was outlast and outlast 2 and outlast whistleblower they are one of the best games ever made in world history

    1. that’s not the point of the game though , or at least one of your objectives . besides , running away instead of just killing the guys in outlast gives more suspense .. it gives a more adrenaline rush kind of vibe .

    2. The main reason for the the game is really stealth and not having any weapons. That’s why this game is so awesome and unique

    3. That defeats the premise of the whole experience and point of the game. Perhaps, for some of us, in an actual scenario such as this, may attempt to defend our lives and try to survive. But, in all reality, most of us would choose flight over fight, in which I think these games capture nicely. It’s a change of pace and a true tense ride as opposed to some of the more overpowered characters in other survival horror titles.

  2. Its only annoying you can’t fight back during the more brutal scenes of Outlast 2, which make you want to stand up for yourself and hit someone in the mouth. I feel like the anger of being helpless made me go a lot faster and power through the scarier moments.

  3. At leas don’t have so much jumpscares in one game… BUY I STILL LOVEEEEE OUTLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Am I the only one who thinks the other “project” they are working on is actually VR compatibility?!?!?!
    I am really hoping that is the case!!
