Frictional Games announces Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs release set for Q2 2013.
This means two things.
One, Frictional can now start on the final touches. According to Nilsson, the Frictional team is now “testing, optimizing, porting, translating” and doing anything else that’s required to get a game into gold status. Of course, this is still a quite a bit of work, which brings us to the second thing…
Two, we are closer to having an actual date for the Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs release. Nilsson states that the team is currently looking at a release sometime around Q2 2013 — which means we’ll most likely see the game this summer. Of course, this is a good bit off of the originally predicted Halloween 2012 release, but it seems that Frictional and thechineseroom has a pretty good reason for that. As Nilsson states in his post:
The good news here is that the delayed release of Amnesia: AMFP means that those of us who haven’t finished the first game still have time — if we don’t chicken out. I’ve personally been meaning to complete Amnesia, and now I guess I’d better get on that.
In the meantime, perhaps with the final version being complete and the Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs release tentatively set, we’ll get to see some video or screenshot content? One can hope.
