Asobo Studio werkt mogelijk al aan een vervolg op het eerder dit jaar verschenen A Plague Tale: Innocence.

The French publication Xbox Squad reports that publisher Focus Home Interactive has requested a follow-up from the developer. The website claims to have learned this from an anonymous source within the publisher. The game was to be announced in 2020, but should only appear in 2022. Focus Home has neither confirmed nor denied the rumor against Eurogamer.

The game takes place in France in the year 1349, when the country is plagued by the Black Death. Amicia must protect her younger brother Hugo, while the two are being chased by the Inquisition and trying to survive in the ruthless world. Hugo also suffers from a mysterious illness.

In our review we  gave the first game a 9.0 and wrote: “Although A Plague Tale: knows Innocence clichés, it is the sum of credible characters, a great soundtrack and an atmospheric setting that turn the whole into a convincing and compelling adventure. If you are a lover of single player experiences, you cannot let this pass you by. ”

A Plague Tale: Innocence appeared for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 last spring.
