Outlast and Outlast 2 were both successful hits for developer Red Barrels, and now the studio has provided an update on Facebook about the franchise, with a lot of exciting information for fans of the series and of horror games in general.

To start with a little bit of bad news, the studio revealed that, "while the first Outlast was made with the idea of a DLC in mind, that was not the case for Outlast 2. We've considered many options, but none of them felt appropriate for a DLC. Outlast 2 was created to make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what's outside the maze."

In terms of sequels, however, there's much better news, as we'll be getting Outlast 3 "at some point [...] and answers will be given." If you really can't wait for more on the series, though, Red Barrels points you in the direction of The Murkoff Account's epilogue, taking place after the second game, which you can find here.

That's not all the good news, as we also know that the developer is "working on something a lot of you have been asking for... It won't be a sequel to Outlast or Outlast 2, but it will be a distinct experience set in the Outlast universe. We can't say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work. Like I mentioned, we strive to be risk-takers and this one is a pretty big challenge. If all goes well, we'll soon be able to reveal more."

Last but not least, we also find out that the Outlast franchise will be released on the Nintendo Switch in the first quarter of next year, with a picture of the games working on the console attached.

There's so much to choose from, but what's the best bit of news?
