A Plague Tale 2 Is Reportedly in the Works

A Plague Tale 2 Might Be Coming in 2022

A Plague Tale: Innocence developer Asobo Studio is reportedly developing a sequel that will be revealed next year with a release window of 2022. This rumor comes from a report published Tuesday on French Xbox news website XboxSquad, which claims that a “verified source” at publisher Focus Home Interactive told the outlet about A Plague Tale 2.

When reached for comment by Eurogamer, Focus Home had this to say:

“Focus Home Interactive and Asobo are very proud of the critical and public reception of A Plague Tale: Innocence, and the sales. We’re delighted to have received a solid number of awards and nominations, including for Best Narrative at the Game Awards next week. We want to pursue our efforts to make sure the game gets even more attention from players and we will thus keep promoting that title as it deserves.

“Of course, we announced last year we are partnering with Asobo for a future project but never confirmed if it was a sequel to A Plague Tale or not – and will give more details on that title when the right time comes.”

Without getting into spoilers, A Plague Tale: Innocence¬†ended in a way that left its story open for a sequel. The game also reviewed well and sold well, so a sequel being made isn’t too surprising.

Currently, no info has been revealed about which platforms A Plague Tale 2 could be released on but, given the rumored release window, it’ll likely come out on next-gen consoles and PC.
