Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs slips into 2013

So THAT's how hot dogs are made!

Horror sequel Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is now slated for a 2013 release on PC. It was previously scheduled for Halloween.

This information came from developer The Chinese Room's creative director Dan Pinchbeck in an interview with Gamezone.

"It's just slid back to early 2013. The quality of the game is the absolute first, last, and always with this development, and we felt it could do with a few more months' work to make sure that's really going to happen."

A Machine for Pig's predecessor Amnesia: The Dark Descent was developed by Frictional Games, before it handed the reins off to the Dear Esther creator.

The first Amnesia is often considered one of the scariest games ever made. Our Quintin Smith called it, "the scariest game I've played in years," before awarding it an 8/10 in his official review.

Pinchbech has stated that its impending sequel will be so terrifying that you "will perhaps never dare to start your computer ever again."
