Rumours are surfacing that Asobo Studio is working on a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. This report originated on Xbox Squad who reportedly was told of the sequel by someone at Focus Home Interactive that the publisher had commissioned a sequel to the dramatic game set in Medieval France where hordes of rats were eating people. According to Xbox Squad there is going to be a bit of a wait with an announcement apparently planned for next year, though a release not expected until 2022. That means we’d likely see any sequel appear on PS5 and Project Scarlett.
Eurogamer contacted Focus who replied with the following statement:
“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.”

A Plague Tale: Innocence proves that feisty young women are the new heroes of single player narrative adventures, and Amicia can proudly stand alongside Aloy and Senua. Asobo Studios have knocked it out of the park with a compelling story, superb graphics, and excellent music. Loved it.
