Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals release date pushed back to 2023

The release of Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals has been pushed back to 2023.

Night School Studio says it’s delaying the release in order to “make Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals the best game it can be.”

Let’s Play Oxenfree – Late to the Party.

“We owe it to our amazing community to make Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals the best game possible,” the studio tweeted over the weekend.

“Seeing your fan art, reading your enthusiastic comments and communicating with you fuels our ambition to make this our best game yet,” Night School tweeted. “To make Oxenfree II really special and add more localizations, we are moving our release window to 2023.”

Night School Studio, the developer behind acclaimed storytelling adventure Oxenfree and its highly anticipated sequel, was recently acquired by Netflix, so it’s probably no surprise that the Oxenfree: Netflix Edition – which is now available on mobile – is described as “the best Oxenfree experience yet”.

Night School has earned a reputation for creating engaging, well-written adventures with a strong emphasis on storytelling across the four games it has released since its inception in 2014.

Following the critically acclaimed Oxenfree in 2016, the developer released a well-received Mr. Robot tie-in, 1.51exfiltrati0n, followed by the Afterparty adventure and Apple-exclusive space getaway, Next Stop Nowhere.

The new villains in Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals are so powerful they’ve penetrated the original game’s source code.
