Publisher Nacon and developer Spiders have announced GreedFall 2: The Dying World for PC and consoles. The game is set to launch in 2024.
GreedFall 2’s story is a prequel, taking place three years before the events of the first game. Players will assume the role of a Teer Fradee native who is uprooted from their island and is taken to where the colonists originally came from, the continent of Gacane, which has been decimated by both war and the Malichor plague.
“We are very excited to reveal GreedFall 2 to everyone, the new game from Spiders,” said Nacon CEO Alain Falc in a statement. “Many fans across the world were begging for this sequel, and we are delighted to be publishing this new game that these fans are sure to love. We also hope it will appeal to new players and all fans of role-playing games, great stories, action, and fantasy.”
Spiders founder and director Jehanne Rousseau added, “While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the Greedfall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it.” She continued, saying, “In this new chapter, players will explore the old continent with its bigger and more diverse environments. They will meet new companions and new factions, and I hope they will have unforgettable adventures.”
While GreedFall 2 is planned for release on consoles in 2024, it’s currently unknown whether it will skip the previous generation with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One like Gotham Knights did.
In our original GreedFall review, we said, “GreedFall is almost everything I want out of a big, juicy, old-school RPG. While it’s still lacking a lot of polish, the exciting combat and excellent, complex quest writing bring it very close to that winning formula of a mid-2000s BioWare game.” Spiders and Nacon have announced that it has so far sold 2 million copies.
