Little Nightmares III Has Been Delayed Into Next Year

Keep dreaming, for now

Developer Supermassive Games and publisher Bandai Namco have announced that the release of puzzle platformer Little Nightmares III has been pushed out of 2024 and will now launch in 2025.

Announced during Gamescom last year, the third instalment of the well-received spooky platformer has been relatively quiet, and now we seem to know why. According to a statement posted to X, the quality of the sequel is paramount, leading to the delay. “As much as we can’t wait for you to return to the Nowhere, we also want to make sure we give the game the care and love it deserves. Quality is a top priority for us, and we know you feel the same way. For this reason, we’ve made the decision to shift the release of the game to 2025.”

Moving from the series’ original developer, Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares III is helmed by Supermassive, the team behind Until Dawn, The Quarry, and The Dark Pictures series. The official statement doesn’t touch on the subject at all, but the studio, well-versed in horror, recently went through a round of layoffs, resulting in approximately 90 jobs lost. There’s seemingly no correlation between the layoffs and this delay, but it’s likely to put extra pressure on the team either way.
