To the surprise of no one who’s played the original game, Red Hook Studios has announced a sequel to their 2016 hit with Darkest Dungeon II. The announcement coincides with the release of a teaser trailer, which you can see below.
Details are obviously scarce for the time being, although in an interview with PCGamer, Tyler Sigman and Chris Bourassa did mention a few details, such as how like its predecessor, the game will initially release in Early Access.
“It’s no secret that we are big fans of the Early Access model, but we also are advocates for only doing Early Access if it makes sense for the specific game. Although there are some massive differences in structure between DD1 and DD2, the sequel is still very appropriate for an Early Access type approach.”
The original Darkest Dungeon, released in 2016 on Steam and GOG.com, is also available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
