The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a "weird fiction horror" game from some of the developers behind Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, will come out of the fog (or wherever it is Mr. Carter vanished to) sometime this summer. Eurogamer reports that the game's creator, Adrian Chmielarz, said to expect the game roughly four months from now.

While that would estimate Ethan Carter's disappearing act to take place in September, Chmielarz also said that the game would release more toward the middle of summer. "We are going to have probably the worst possible release date, which is the middle of summer," he told Eurogamer. "It's hot and it's summer - do you really want to play a game about autumn?"

Chmielarz said that while the summer 2014 window is for a PC release, Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game are a distinct possibility. He and his team currently lack dev kits for either system, but Chmielarz plans to "bug" Microsoft and Sony once work on Ethan Carter has wrapped.
