A Plague Tale 2 is Said to Already be In Development
A sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence has reportedly been ordered by publisher Focus Home Interactive.
Despite only launching about six months ago, it seems that Asobo Studio could already be hard at work on the sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence.
This information comes by way of French publication Xbox Squad which states that publisher Focus Home Interactive has ordered a sequel to be made from Asobo. Xbox Squad claims that these details come from a source at Focus Home. It also further proclaims that A Plague Tale 2, or whatever it may be called, will be announced next year in 2020 but likely won’t release until a few years later in 2022.
Eurogamer then reached out to Focus Home for a comment on this report, to which the publisher sent the following reply:
“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.”
As Focus Home flat out acknowledges, it is already working with Asobo again on another project, but whether or not that game ends up being A Plague Tale 2 still isn’t publicly known. That said, considering how successful A Plague Tale has been both critically and commercially for Focus Home Interactive, it’d be shocking if this next Asobo game wasn’t related to A Plague Tale.
