There’s a rumor going around that a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence is in the works. Xbox Squad reported on this first and it publisher Focus Home Interactive didn’t deny it. The company said the following.
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 Xbox Squad claims that they “can confirm that A Plague Tale 2 is in development… The info comes directly from a head of Focus… the game is set to be released in 2022, with an official reveal next year.” It’ll be interesting to see where the story takes our protagonists. Hopefully, this rumor is true. As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until official confirmation.
In Windows Central’s review, Brendan Lowry wrote, “While there are some minor flaws with A Plague Tale: Innocence, the game as a whole is still absolutely fantastic, offering players a gripping narrative, a compelling mix of stealth and puzzle gameplay, and gorgeous audio/visuals. This is, without a doubt, one of the best games of 2019 so far, and I can’t recommend it enough.”
Trying to live in a dying world
A Plague Tale: Innocence is a superb stealth adventure with excellent gameplay, gorgeous presentation, and a fantastic story that shows how the worst of what the world can throw at humanity can bring out the worst of it.
