There’s very few games this generation that stood out from mid-tier developers. We have Until Dawn, What Remains of Edith Finch, alongside a few others. But this year had arguably the best of them all – A Plague Tale: Innocence.
With Asobo Studio hard at work on Microsoft Flight Simulator, their other team is working on a new game with Focus Home Interactive. XboxSquad is reporting that the title with Focus Home is indeed a sequel to this year’s A Plague Tale. They also went onto saying it’ll be revealed next year and released in 2022.
Now the best part is, Focus Home commented, and they didn’t fully deny what Asobo Studio’s next game was:
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.
The vagueness of it all speaks volumes. They didn’t say it wasn’t a sequel, and that they’ll give more details “when the right time comes”, indicating that it’ll be sooner rather than later.
A Plague Tale: Innocence released earlier this year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
