The Alone in the Dark reboot has been available since March 20th across Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. Check out our review for the reboot here!

Here’s the full word from Pieces Interactive:

Pieces Interactive released over ten titles on PC, Console and Mobile since 2007, both our own concepts such as Puzzlegeddon, Fret Nice, Leviathan Warships, Robo Surf and Kill to Collect, as well as work for hire titles such as Magicka 2 and several DLCs for Magicka. Our client list includes Paradox Interactive, Koei Tecmo, Arrowhead Game Studios, Koch Media and RaceRoom Entertainment.
