Update: Oxenfree II: Lost Signals’ release date has been officially revealed this time and, surprise surprise, it lines up exactly with that was accidentally spilled by the PlayStation Store earlier this month (as per the below story).
The release date was unveiled during today’s Indie World Nintendo Direct, with Oxenfree II coming to Switch, PS5, PS4, PC and Netflix. Check out the tantalising, mystery-teasing Official Date Announce trailer below:
Original Story: After multiple delays it seems that the release date for Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, the much-anticipated sequel to the beloved 2016 indie narrative adventure, has been leaked by a backend listing on the PlayStation Store.
Originally slated to release in 2021, the game was then pushed back to 2022 before being delayed once again to a vague “2023” window. It looks like things are finally starting to take shape though, with the leaked release date of July 12th, 2023 coming from the PlayStation Game Size Twitter account as well as an accidental (and now removed) trailer launch on YouTube.
Oxenfree II: Lost Signals is pegged as “the mind-bending follow-up to the critically-acclaimed narrative adventure game Oxenfree from Night School Studio. Play it as a standalone story or dive deeper by playing the original – it’s up to you. As you play, you’ll shape every step of the story through your choices. How you choose to deal with the supernatural events at hand will forever alter the future.”

Your choices matter.
Shape everything through your conversations and dialogue choices. Forge a deep friendship with an old acquaintance from high school or opt to ignore a lost fisherman in need. Your choices impact who Riley becomes, your relationships, and the story options available to you at every turn.
Start chatter from anywhere.
Use an all-new walkie talkie conversation system to chat with contacts and uncover useful insights about the mysteries of Camena. Ask for info, check in with the locals, or completely ignore them. It’s your call to make. And, it has consequences.
Five years ago on nearby Edwards Island, a few teenagers unwittingly opened a portal, creating a rift between realities and timelines. Now, members of a mysterious cult-like group called Parentage are deliberately trying to open a new portal to pull something out. Who are they? What do they want? Are they trying to contact ghosts?
Tune in to the radio.
Ghostly signals are piercing through the frequencies of Camena. Tap into the eerie sounds and static using OXENFREE’s signature radio mechanic. You’ll communicate with the supernatural, manipulate the world, and travel to the past by tuning into time tears: unnatural fissures in the time-space continuum.
Save everyone and everything.
Your future was on the line in OXENFREE and those stakes are even higher in OXENFREE II. Explore, climb, and rappel across Camena’s beautifully treacherous landscape. Take risks and see where it takes you. It might be dangerous. But it could also save the future. Not only for Riley but for everyone.
