In a pleasantly surprising announcement from publisher Modus Games, Remothered: Broken Porcelain is now coming out on Tuesday, October 13th, 2020. A full week ahead of its original scheduled release date.
This news comes just a couple months after Modus delayed Remothered: Broken Porcelain from August 25 to October 20th due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic complicating circumstances. Stormind Games, the development team, needed more wiggle-room to iron out any kinks to deliver a polished, frantic game of cat and mouse just in time for Halloween. But there’s some spooky competition coming October 20th now, specifically the long-awaited Amnesia: Rebirth. Not to mention The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope comes out the following week on October 30th. With all this fierce competition creeping up on them, Modus made the decision to move Remothered: Broken Porcelain‘s release up a week.
“While moving dates forward isn’t common,” explains Shane Bierwith, EVP of global marketing at Modus. “We’d like to allow horror fans to get their hands on Broken Porcelain early so players can have more time to experience all the great games releasing around Halloween.”
There’s yet to be a confirmation if physical copies of Remothered: Broken Porcelain will also come out on October 13th. However, Given Modus didn’t state otherwise, it’s safe to assume the physical edition will be out the same day as its digital counterpart. Nevertheless, you’ll be able to download the game from the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, the Nintendo eShop, and Steam digitally for $29.99.
Remothered: Tormented Fathers certainly garnered a loyal fanbase, and sold well enough to warrant the sequel, but it makes sense that modus would want to put some space between Remothered: Broken Porcelain and its competition. Amnesia: Rebirth, in particular, is a direct sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, arguably the most celebrated survival horror game of the past decade. It’s not the sort of name a fledgling horror series like Remothered should go up against right away, least the goal is to be gobbled up by the bigger title right away. So moving the Remothered: Broken Porcelain‘s release up makes good business sense. Plus, fans can get their hands on it that much sooner.
Being a direct sequel to Remothered: Tormented Fathers, it would be wise for those interested in the sequel to go back and play the first game. So if you have yet to do so, there are about three weeks left until Remothered: Broken Porcelain comes out on October 13th.
