Following rumors of a sequel, Focus Home Interactive announced A Plague Tale: Requiem for PlayStation 5, Switch, PC and Xbox Series, with release set for 2022.
Aurélie Belzanne, head of communication for Asobo Studio, described A Plague Tale: Requiem as follows:
We are excited to finally bring to light A Plague Tale: Requiem, sequel to Asobo Studio and Focus Home Interactive critically acclaimed A Plague Tale: Innocence. You can check out the very first trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem above featuring our beloved duo Hugo and Amicia, the now iconic rat swarm, and a release window for 2022!
After the original game’s epic finale to a heartbreaking story of resilience, players will embark on the emotional journey’s second chapter. They will follow Amicia and her brother Hugo on a perilous new quest, doing whatever it takes to survive a brutal, uncaring world.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is the direct sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. Previously, players lived the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending adventure through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo came to know and trust each other, as they struggled to survive against overwhelming odds and fight to find their place in the world.Xbox Wire
