The Witness, Jonathan Blow's long-awaited follow-up to Braid, will be out on 26th January for PS4 and PC, the developer has announced.

The game had been delayed quite a lot as Blow was originally hoping to get it ready around the PS4's launch nearly two years ago. "We originally thought The Witness would be coming out toward the end of the PS4 launch window, but... there's just been a lot to do," Blow said on the PlayStation Blog. "I think when the game is in your hands, you'll find it to be intricate and deep, and also unlike anything else you have played."

"I figured it would have between eight and 12 hours of playtime. As it happens, the game we've finally built is around 10 times as big as that," Blow explained. "If you are a completionist who wants to wring every last drop out of the game, you might expect to play for 80 hours, or possibly 100. For people who don't want to go quite that far, the game's still got plenty for you."
