On resetera, a leaker said that Asobo Studio might reveal a brand new remaster for A Plague Tale: Innocence. There is already a rumoured sequel currently in development at the studio and will be revealed at E3 2021. The user also explained that in addition to the sequel, which apparently has a release date of 2022 and will be on Gamepass Day 1, it would also end up seeing releases on the PlayStation and Switch platforms, the latter through a cloud version.
A Plague Tale: Innocence was originally released in 2019 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Amazon Luna and on PC platforms to commercial success along with positive reviews from critics. Leakers say that the game might see a remaster soon, with it coming to PS5 on the PlayStation Plus system as a free game this July. Free games for the month can range from games a few years old like Days Gone to titles releasing for free on the system, like Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Edition, so it wouldn’t be unreasonable for the new remaster of the game to be free on the system on release.
After the first game’s success, a sequel to it would seem warranted, and there are lots of potential themes for it to explore. All that being said, this should all be taken with a grain of salt, and with E3 nearing, it would be best to wait for an official announcement then.
