From indie 2D titles to high end AAA gore fests, there's been something of a rebirth lately in the horror genre, with the focus finally pulling away from shooting action and landing where it belongs: on the actual horror.
With 2017 on the horizon, you may have noticed several of our most anticipated horror games from last year never actually arrived! Sadly, some of the most intriguing titles like Perception and Draugen didn't reach the end of their development cycles, and the much-buzzed Outlast 2 got pushed back last minute to Q1 2017. Games like We Happy Few however were arguably released as the early access phenomena royally screws up release dates and what it means for a game to be "finished."
Meanwhile, the asymmetrical Friday The 13th is looking worse each time more is revealed, while Dead By Dawn seems to have already covered the same material with much less wait time and to a better degree. We'll have to just wait and see if the very similar The Last Year can offer something different.
While we wait for those delayed games to hit, there are many new games announced for 2017 that will get genre fans salivating, and here we're going to cover 12 of the most eagerly anticipated horror games coming in the next year!
