RedBarrels have begun to tease the reveal of their upcoming horror sequel Outlast 2, by uploading a cryptic audio message onto YouTube.
When played regularly, the audio is indecipherable but when reversed, an ominous voice reads “on the fourth month and twenty-second day, of the sixteenth year, of the third millenium: our reckoning begins” (22/04/16). This is an enormous hint that the game will be formally unveiled at PAX East in Boston, which takes place from April 22-24. The video also shows some notable imagery, primarily of an inverted cross against a darkening sky––similar to previous promotional images of Outlast 2.
You can see the video below. Outlast 2 is slated to launch this autumn.
