THQ Nordic has made the decision to delay Alone in the Dark again so studio Pieces Interactive can avoid crunch over the Christmas period. Originally slated for a January release, the PS5 horror reboot will now launch on 20th March 2024.
In a statement, the publisher said "the well-being of the teams is a top priority, and both companies want to avoid any potential crunch over the Christmas holidays". The extended development time will be used to "ensure that the game not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the community". The game was originally launching in October, but was delayed to January to avoid the busy release schedule that saw the likes of Assassin's Creed Mirage, Alan Wake 2, and Marvel's Spider-Man 2 release in close proximity.
This new March release date means it faces competition from Dragon's Dogma 2. How do you feel about the delay? Put your thoughts in the comments below.
