Thechineseroom’s long-awaited Amnesia sequel has been tentatively scheduled for a second quarter launch.

In an update to the Frictional Games blog, the indepdent developer confirmed it received a final build of the Dan Pinchbeck-designed Amneisa: A Machine for Pigs, the followup to Frictional’s own Amnesia: the Dark Descent, which released in 2010.

“But don’t get too excited just yet. Some work is still left to be done. We are testing, tweaking, optimizing, porting, translating and all those things that are part of the process of creating and releasing a game,” Frictional said.

“Currently we are looking at a release around Q2 2013.”

A Machine for Pigs had been expected by Hallowe’en 2012, but the project grew from “a short, experimental game set in the universe of Amnesia” to “a fully fledged Amnesia game”.

“A different kind of Amnesia, but definitely not a short experiment,” Frictional said.

A firm release date, pricing, and system requirements are expected soon.
