Oxenfree II: Lost Signals delayed to 2023 to add more language support

Oxenfree, the supernatural mystery horror adventure indie title saw a great deal of success following its launch back in 2016. The game’s sequel, originally planned for release back in 2021, was later delayed to some time this year. With just a few months left in 2022 however, Night School Studios has now officially delayed Oxenfree II: Lost Signals to 2023 – though for a seemingly good reason.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Night School Studio account said “We owe it to our amazing community to make OXENFREE II: Lost Signals the best game it can possibly be. Seeing your fan art, reading your excited comments, and connecting with you fuels our ambition to make this our best game yet. To make OXENFREE II truly special and add more localizations, we're moving our release window to 2023.”

The team concluded by saying “Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding. We can't wait to share the game with you. Stay tuned!”

As mentioned, Oxenfree II was originally planned for release back in 2021. In September of that year however, it was announced that streaming giant Netflix would be acquiring Night School Studios.

With the service’s international audience, it makes sense that the publisher would want as many people to experience Oxenfree II as possible, hence the delay to add further localisations. Oxenfree I is available in 31 languages on Netflix right now and so if you have not played the original, now is the time to do so.

KitGuru says: What do you think of the delay? Is it for a good reason? Is the game being published by Netflix an issue for you? Let us know down below.
