The fantastic metroidvania Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is getting a sequel, according to a new financial report.
Digital Bros, which oversees the publisher 505 Games, revealed key data on the original 2019 released game in its recent financial report. The slide in reference to the game mentions the previously reported 1 million sales of the title, which in turn has delivered €30.2 million in profits. But the most exciting news is note of a “second version in development”, however, there's no indication of when this may be.
Now, it may be easy to think this is just another version of the original game, but if we look at Ghostrunner's slide, two things are noted. Firstly, that again, a second version is in development. But secondly, we have confirmation of a next-gen version early next financial year. This leads us to believe that the "second version" mentioned is in fact a sequel, as it's already been confirmed that Ghostrunner has one in the works.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night received a score of 84 on Metacritic, with many praising its exploration and combat. Sporting both a fantastic number of sales and reviews, it's no surprise a sequel is in the works.
