Sekiro 2: Will We Ever Get A Sequel?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was one of the best games to come out of 2019. And honestly, what's not to love? With a one-armed shinobi protagonist sporting an awesome robotic arm, stealth elements, precision sword fighting, a 1500s Japanese setting, and gameplay akin to the Souls series, it's practically a recipe for success. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice showed promise before it launched, and when it was released, it turned out to be one of the best games of 2020. While Sekiro's difficult can be enraging at times, it's a beloved game that managed to sell an impressive two million copies before it has even been out for 10 days. 


Clearly, the fans cannot get enough of this game. With that said, a sequel should be inevitable, right? You would definitely think so. If a sequel is planned, how long will fans have to wait? If you're hungry for more Sekiro games, here's the scoop on what to expect from a possible sequel, and when that might happen.

What to expect from Sekiro 2

While some of the endings in the first Sekiro may have hinted at a follow-up, FromSoftware, the game's developer, has not been particularly active in 2020. When reflecting on the likelihood of a sequel, Game Rant's Jared Carvalho said that FromSoftware "has trended towards more original games that act as spiritual sequels to each other as opposed to a direct continuity." As such, it seems as though this team is more focused on refining what worked in previous games and integrating them into brand-new storylines and titles.


Sadly, when you examine From Software's past regarding follow-up games, the outlook for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice 2 isn't particularly promising. Considering that fans are also still in the dark over the possibility of a sequel to FromSoftware's Bloodborne, chances look even slimmer. That's not to say that  a Sekiro sequel is an impossibility, but only time will tell. 

Dying for more Sekiro-style games while waiting for a possible sequel, spiritual or otherwise? The good news is there are plenty of other games you can play in the meantime that should satisfy the craving.
