Ghostwire: Tokyo is apparently getting a sequel (and is definitely more popular than you thought)

Ghostwire: Tokyo might have met with a muted reception when it launched final yr, however that hasn’t stopped 6 million gamers from venturing out into the haunted streets of Shibuya to shoot some spooks with their finger-guns.

If this sudden bit of reports had you considering that perhaps there’d be a Ghostwire sequel within the works, you would be proper — and seeming affirmation got here from an sudden supply mere days later. Final night time a Microsoft doc outlining Bethesda’s deliberate launch schedule for the years 2020-24 was leaked on-line; among the many as-yet-unannounced titles on the roster have been Dishonored 3, DOOM Yr Zero, and — sure — a Ghostwire: Tokyo sequel pencilled in for a launch in 2024.

It is price noting, although, that the proposed follow-up does not also have a title past “sequel”; and naturally, inner paperwork like this aren’t meant as advertising and marketing supplies, and should not be taken as agency affirmation that each sport listed will actually be introduced sometime. Additionally, the entire record is clearly considerably out-of-date: it locations the unique Ghostwire as releasing in 2021, when as everyone knows it did not find yourself materialising till March 2022. Different now-released titles on the leaked docket are equally out of synch with actuality, suggesting that this would possibly properly be a pre-pandemic best-case-scenario for Bethesda.

So if that Ghostwire sequel is certainly within the works — and it looks like there’s motive to hope that it’s, particularly given the primary sport’s wholesome participant depend — realistically we’re most likely a 2025-6 launch on the earliest. Nonetheless, it is laborious to disclaim that it has been every week of hopeful and thrilling information for Ghostwire: Tokyo followers; and because it was my private favorite sport of 2022, I very a lot depend myself among the many excited hopeful, even when I do at all times suggest taking leaks with a beneficiant pinch of salt.
