The release of Oxenfree II: Lost Signals has been postponed by Night School Studio. The sequel to Oxenfree, released in 2016, will not be released until next year, the developer announced on Saturday.
“We’re moving our release window to 2023 to make Oxenfree II truly special and add more localizations,” the studio announced on Twitter. The delay was announced shortly after Netflix announced that subscribers could download the original game for free.
Night School Studio was acquired by Netflix in 2021. Given Netflix’s global audience, it makes sense to devote more time to localizing the game in more languages. To that end, the new “Netflix Edition” supports subtitles in over 30 languages.
When Oxenfree II: Lost Signals is released next year, it will be available on Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.
