The game is the second in the Bloodstained series and released on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2019. Recently, word got around that a sequel was rumoured to be in the works due to a financial report suggesting that another “version” of the Metroidvania title could be seeing the light of day.

The Bloodstained Twitter account has since acknowledged the reports and confirmed that 505 Games and ArtPlay are indeed working on the sequel. Fans of the series had hoped to see more information at this year’s Guerrilla Collective.
