A Plague Tale
There are reports out there that A Plague Tale is getting a sequel with A Plague Tale2 aiming for a 2022 release window
It looks like new rumors are circling out there that a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence is in the works for us all. Quite a bit of an interesting thing to hear indeed given how well Asobo Studio did with this little title and all of the praise it has garnered. Maybe not when you put it all that way, but those who have played A Plague Tale: Innocence may be questioning if and how one would be coming about. It really was great as an isolated thing, but I know I for one would be interested in seeing and hearing of a new one. Even if the rumors do state it could be 2022 before we see it grace any of the systems out there.
All of this is still in speculation but comes from another outlet, Xbox Squad, which states it has word from the publisher of A Plague Tale about all of this. Of course, it would seem odd to have it be announced in this manner but even if it is slight, we will take what we can to get our hands on another tale of Amicia and Hugo. Also to see how the team tries to keep the story flowing beyond the ending we had and if A Plague Tale 2 will be an episodic style thing or possibly a story through the eyes of a few others out there. I can see it going in various ways but still am a bit confused to hear right now. We will see, though…
Asobo Studio Is Already Working On A Plague Tale 2 For Release In 2022
Asobo have made a name for themselves with A Plague Tale: Innocence. It has notably placed the French studio in the spotlight. The recent nomination for best narrative game at The Game Awards is not really a surprise, and many gamers have been eagerly asking for a sequel. Well, those waiting for the continuation of this dramatic story are in luck : we can confirm that A Plague Tale 2 is in development!
The first episode, Innocence, was initially announced as a standalone. It seems that its success has changed the publisher’s plans. According to our verified source, Focus Home Interactive, publisher of the first game, has ordered a sequel from Asobo Studio. Yes, the same developers of the initial game will be back in action! The info comes directly from a head of Focus, so the fans can, without a doubt, count on a proper sequel.
Don’t get too impatient though, the game is set to be released in 2022, with an official reveal next year. So we think you can expect more info in one of Sony or Microsoft’s big shows. Maybe during the E3 2020?
That being said, the release window doesn’t give too much doubt, we will be seeing A Plague Tale 2 on the next generation of consoles, or the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett if you prefer.
Of course, we contacted Focus Home Interactive, who besides being surprised, confirmed the presented information. Through the mouth of its COO, the publisher validated that the development had begun, and that the communication was planned for next year. This confirms with absolute certainty a new story of A Plague Tale, with Asobo at the helm.
