A Plague Tale: Requiem, the anticipated follow-up to A Plague Tale: Innocence, launched yesterday on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. While the game is still being enjoyed by fans this week, the developers are already talking about the future. A recent interview with Asobo Studio revealed that the team currently has no plans to make a sequel to Requiem, instead leaving that decision to player reactions first.
In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, A Plague Tale: Requiem game director Kevin Choteau revealed that Asobo Studio isn’t planning a sequel to Requiem at the moment. Choteau stated that they want to pay attention to player reception first before they make the decision to move ahead with a follow-up.

Choteau, when asked about a third entry for A Plague Tale, responded with:
“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.”
This makes sense as A Plague Tale: Requiem was never on the table either until Asobo Studio saw the positive reception for A Plague Tale: Innocence. With Requiem receiving similarly favourable scores to its predecessor, it’s possible that the developer might push ahead with a third game to wrap up the series as a trilogy.
In our review for Requiem, we called it an emotional, enthralling sequel that builds upon the foundations of Innocence while refining its gameplay elements. Some technical issues, including a capped 30FPS on consoles, are hiccups in an otherwise fantastic package that’s sure to be a favourite among fans.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass.
