Not only will a PlayStation 5 version of Ghostrunner be out by the end of 2021, but it's also getting a sequel. 505 Games confirmed the sequel is now currently in development, operating with an initial budget of €5 million from makers of the first game One More Level. The announcement comes as it surpasses 600,000 sales worldwide. A release window has not been attached to the follow-up, but with the original title coming to PS5 before the year's end, it would probably be safe to assume Ghostrunner 2 won't be out until 2022 at the earliest.
Within a press release, Digital Bros co-CEO Raffaele Galante said: "We are particularly excited about the future release of Ghostrunner 2. Together with One More Level, we have created a thrilling and engaging video game. This new collaboration deepens 505 Games presence within the Polish videogame market, a reality now among the firsts in Europe for the development of video games, new projects and talents. We will continue to pay close attention to the Polish market to constantly improve and expand our product portfolio with video games capable of satisfying the tastes of the entire gaming community."

Loved Ghostrunner. I guess 600k is not bad for a pretty hardcore indie game?
Anyway, I’m not sure I’d expect a sequel in 2022. 2023 seems more like it. Excited nonetheless.
Completely unexpected but completely welcome news! Ghostrunner is a heck of a game and left a huge impression on me.
Ghostrunner was amazing. Great soundtrack, hard difficulty with quick respawns making it feel fair at all times, very cool setting... One of my favourite games of last year. Sequel news is excellent!
Hype hype hype!
Can't wait to see what they can do in the sequel with 5 mill!
Wow this is great news!!! I was ignoring ghostrunner till one day I decided to try the demo out and fell in love with it, can't stop playing it.
P.S. we need more demos, I lost count how many times I tried a demo out of a game I had no previous interest in and ended up buying it n loving it. More demos please
Great news! Ghostrunner was a phenomenal game, really underlooked.
Day one purchase. The first game is so good.
Been playing it on PC. Game is sick
This is awesome to see. Can't wait for the 2nd one!
@Brasilkilla I’m glad you said that. I didn’t realize there was a demo for this. I was so excited for this until I saw the “combat” of the game and it instantly put me off with the one hit kills. I kept watching videos for it though, one day it clicked with me that the core gameplay isn’t the combat but the puzzle of traversal, which brought my interest back up. I figured I’d give it a try when it hits a good sale some time.
@Odium yea do try the demo out, I got instantly hooked. I wasn't too crazy about the whole 1 hit kill thing either but it works perfect for this game and the reespawn is so instant(at least on ps5 ,I haven't played on ps4) that you waste no time getting back into the action. No need to wait for sale either game is cheap as it is, and imo worth every cent
Waiting for the next gen upgrade to play this one
@Odium Yeah, even the combat encounters really feel like puzzles most of the time in this game. It's mostly about figuring out what route to take and the order in which you dispatch enemies (although it's not like there's only one correct way to do it). The literally instant respawns and pretty generous autosaving really help too.
@Voltan thanks for the feedback. That’s definitely what it seemed like the more I watched it, which made me far more interested. I’ll have to check it out.
@everynowandben Same here, must play on PS5 to get full experience.
Loved this game apart from those final digital style levels. Closest I’ve come to putting my PS5 controller through the tv.
