When we first started on Amnesia: Rebirth, the idea was to work on a fairly straightforward and simple project. Our first plan had the game being released in 2017 or 2018. Obviously, that didn’t happen.

Instead the game grew in size and ambition. It went from being a game with a small scope to being the biggest and most ambitious game we have produced to date. Why so? The main reason is that as we worked on the game, we realized that we couldn’t make our own sequel to The Dark Descent a mere “side-project”. We wanted to make sure we incorporated all the lessons that we’d learned over the years and to expand on the loose threads from the first game. 

The past 10 years has also seen a flood of new horror games, and we wouldn’t allow a new Amnesia game to simply be lost in the crowd. It had to stand out and to pave new ground. We couldn’t allow it to be anything less.

This sort of change in scope wasn’t without issues, especially as we were working on another, currently secret, project at the same time. But, finally, we got through it, and created a game of the quality we wanted. We’ve got to be honest, though: it took longer than we expected. So, to finally have an official release date nailed down feels damn good.

We’ll be giving out more information on the game over the coming weeks. In the meantime there are a bunch of hints that can be gathered from watching the trailer carefully. Uncovering those is left as an exercise for the reader, though…

So – we hope you enjoyed the trailer! Stay tuned for more information soon!

  1. Can’t believe it’s happening. It’s been so long, way too long. So many things have changed. Thank you for this, you guys made my teenage years better and are now continuing to do so in my 20s. It really makes me wonder what did you manage to come up with that will make this sequel stand out from the rest of the dozens of horror games that came out in the past period as you wrote. Will it live up to its predecessor’s standards? What new formula, recipe did you come up with so it isn’t just TDD2 but much more than that? So many questions, and I can’t even begin to imagine the horrors awaiting. Again thank you for your work, and I wish you all on the team good health and may you continue to surprise and scare us for years to come. Also hope you make heaps of $$$ so all your hard work pays off, but I’m sure it will. Haven’t watched the trailer yet, gotta get my headphones. Looking forward to this!!
    Time flies so fast. 🙁

  2. One tehnical question,can Rebirth run on low budget video cards?
    As I can see judging by graphics you guys have implemented PBR shaders right?,so will that demand higher system requiements?

  3. Been looking forward to this for a while now! Going to have to looking for those hints later today hmmmm…

  4. I loved playing the Amnesia Collection, I have played horror games that made me scared, but Amnesia made me feel something I had never felt from a game, it made me feel dread. Anyways I wanted to ask if there is any plan to have this game on Xbox consoles? Like will this game be a exclusive on only those platforms or will their be a release on Xbox in the future? Any answer would be appreciated, and I do look forward to getting my hands on this game (no matter what system)

  5. FIinally!

    You guys have huge shoes to fill after SOMA, which should be made into a movie ,and is in my mind the best game of all time. If you even approximate SOMA and Dark Descent we will al be happy. Thanks for the news, and thanks for all the time and work you put into your games, alot of people appreciate it.


  6. I’l definitely buy it, I love your stories and the way you guys make games but…

    why it looks like a graphical downgrade since Soma ?

  7. love you guys keep up the good work
    your games have changed my life and the way i see things in the world
    dont thank the world would be the same with out guys like you i look forward to the games you guys make more than any “AAA” game company

  8. Wow, thanks for the GOG version!
    This is my most hyped game. This and “Asylum” by Senscape!
    I just hope Rebirth will be scary enough, because it plays in the desert, in outdoor locations. I can’t imagine how a desert being scary, but let’s see.
