Asobo Studio crafted one of the most surprising games of this year, the other one is Death Stranding (ey, what’s happened here?). Aside from jokes, A Plague Tale: Innocence is one of the sleepers of this year. The sequel could be on works.

Xbox Squad reported that Asobo Studio is already working on a new iteration of A Plague Tale. Supposedly, the game would be reveal in 2020 to be released on 2022. Initially, Focus did not deny the rumor, but after they stepped back and published the following statement about this rumor:

“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.”

Thanks, XboxSquad and Resetera.
