A Plague Tale: Requiem PS5 PlayStation

A Plague Tale: Requiem is out in the wild, and while the fact that the PS5 title caps out at just 30fps seems to have ruffled some feathers, we thought the game itself was great, nonetheless. It remains to be seen how successful the follow-up to 2019's A Plague Tale: Innocence will ultimately end up being, but at least for right now, developer Asobo Studios have no plans for a sequel.

In an interview over on the PlayStation Blog, director Kevin Choteau was asked whether Requiem represented another chapter in an ongoing story and was refreshingly forthright in his response, stating: "I think, for now, it’s the end. But the door is never closed, and we’ll see the player reception. We want to see their reaction before deciding anything. They are driving our production, and if they don’t like what we’ve done, we need to do something else."

A Plague Tale: Requiem is currently sitting at a respectable 82 on the review aggregate site Metacritic (with a user score of 8.3), and we would venture to say that if Asobo did feel like there was more story to tell, they would likely find an audience willing to hear what they have to say.
