Development on a sequel to the RPG Two Worlds II has begun, according to TopWare, but you’ve got a while to wait until you can actually play Two Worlds III. Three years, in fact – and that’s best case scenario, without delays or any other unforeseen problems.
As part of the press release on the studio’s website, TopWare says:
TopWare Interactive and Reality Pump studios have some exciting news! We are pleased to announce that after earning multiple awards and selling over ten million units, Reality Pump Studios has officially begun work on the third part of our blockbuster RPG series, Two Worlds!
Two Worlds III is currently in the concept stage and scheduled for development over the next 36 months. Keep an eye out for further announcements.
Three years is a long time to wait, though, so TopWare’s got a few things in store to keep fans of the series occupied for some of that time. The developer’s got a whole bunch of new content planned for Two Worlds II, including multiplayer maps and two brand new singleplayer expansions, Call of the Tenebrae and Shattered Embrace.
And that’s not all! We’re also excited to announce a major engine update for Two Worlds II, and we’re going to need it, because while we’re laying down the basics for the third installment in the series, this year we’re also going to be releasing eight new Two Worlds II multiplayer maps and two brand-new, single-player Two Worlds II DLCs, Call of the Tenebrae and Shattered Embrace!
The first of those two expansion packs is due to release in the second quarter of 2016, though there’s currently no release date for Shattered Embrace.
Look out for more news on Two Worlds III in the coming months, but don’t expect anything substantial for a while – the game is in the very early stages of development.
