Eek! This is a rumour that gets this particular scribe rather excited. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one of 2019's most underrated games, but that didn't stop people from going out and buying it -- the game and RPG GreedFall increased publisher Focus Home Interactive's revenue by 80%. It's no wonder then that a sequel is supposedly in the works.
Initially reported by Xbox Squad and then picked up by Eurogamer, the title is said to be planned for launch at some point in 2022, making it a PlayStation 5 game. When contacted for comment, the AA publishing heavyweight said: "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."
Xbox Squad claims that Focus Home Interactive's COO confirmed the details and that the game is planned to be officially unveiled next year, but we're highly doubtful of that. A reveal in 2021 sounds a bit more realistic if the game really is in development, however, as we can't imagine Asobo Studio will want to string its fans on for too long.
Do you hope A Plague Tale 2 is actually in development? Fend off the rats in the comments below.
