Outlast 1 and 2 hit Nintendo Switch early 2018

Plus, brand new Outlast game in development.

Outlast 1 and 2 are coming to Nintendo Switch early next year, Big Red Barrels has announced.

The first-person survival horror games hit Switch at some point during the first quarter of 2018, the developer said in a post on Facebook.

Outlast 1 came out on PC back in 2013, before ports for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One came out in 2014. Outlast 2 came out earlier this year.

In the update, Big Red Barrels said Outlast 2 will not get any DLC. "We've considered many options, but none of them felt appropriate for a DLC," the developer said. "Outlast 2 was created to make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what's outside the maze."

Outlast 3 will be made "at some point... and answers will be given." Meanwhile, Big Red Barrels said it's working on another game set in the Outlast universe. This isn't a sequel to Outlast 1 or 2, but something different.

"We can't say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work," the developer added. "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."

If you played Outlast 2 and you're looking for story answers, Big Red Barrels suggested checking out the The Murkoff Account's epilogue, which takes places right after the events of the second game.
