It's been a rough week for Alone in the Dark. First, it was reported that the game would miss its projected March release date (which was itself a delay from last November), then Atari made it clear that the title had not been delayed 'til September. However, the company did not confirm a March rele...

Will wonders never cease? In one week, Alone in the Dark went from being released in March to being released in September to "not delayed until September, but we're not saying when it's actually coming out." Now, according to CVG, the survival horror title will drop on the Xbox 360, Wii, PC and PS...

Eurogamer says they've been informed by Atari that a reported delay of Alone in the Dark until September is simply a rumor, but the company wouldn't take the next step and say the game will release as expected in March. Yeah, that's just a bit awkward.If you're having déjà vu about Al...

It looks like they may have spoken to soon, as Eurogamer reveals that Atari has taken exception to the article, saying that the Games for Windows report was a rumor. Granted, this isn't an out...

Delays, delays, delays. They're all over the place aren't they? Of course, towards the end of 2007, delays were expected. After all, there were tons of good games (or at least games that were supposed to be good) coming out at the time, so it only made sense to push certain titles into the new year...

A look back at our coverage of Alone In The Dark reveals that most of the coverage on the game hasn't been focused on its intriguing episodic nature or any of its other features. The bulk of the posts are news of delays, both big and small pushing the game through the years like the world's slowest...

Man, if we had a nickel for every game-related countdown site on the internet, we'd easily have, like, at least ten nickels. Make that eleven, as a new countdown site by the name of CentralDark.com has popped up. The website was revealed via an email distributed by Atari, and features a video about...

What with its lingering financial worries and loss of licenses, Atari is a lot like a three-legged dog seen limping pitifully to the side of the road. We want to help, we do, but we've already got a perfectly good dog at home with all four legs intact. With so much hardship, it's evident that much...

We're not sure that Atari completely understands the order trailers are supposed to appear in. Last year, we got a fast-paced, action-oriented trailer for Alone In the Dark supposedly composed entirely from in-game footage. Now we have a new trailer for the game that's a simple, action-free t...

Despite what Eurogamer reported yesterday, it looks like Atari changed their mind and now Alone in the Dark on PS3 will launch simultaneously with the PC and Xbox 360 versions again. Looks like Atari dropped the ball talking to Eurogamer saying that the Xbox and PC versions were "first to be releas...

A lot of reports surfaced the other day about Alone in the Dark getting "indefinitely delayed" for the PS3, while the 360 and PC versions of the game were going to hit their mark. We figured, "nah, not this game too," and waited it out, since there was no rhyme or reason for the delay. As it happens...
