Reflect on the indie releases of 2018 and one of the standout games was the roguelike action title Dead Cells by French-based developer Motion Twin. The title was praised by critics and sold incredibly well, especially on the Switch eShop where it managed to outsell the PlayStation 4 version.
When a game has this level of success, normally a sequel is expected. In the case of Dead Cells, this might not be the case. Speaking to Game Informer, Motion Twin game designer Sébastien Bénard said it was best for the studio not to dwell on its success:
“If you create a big hit, it’s best to use this energy to make something different. I don’t think we’ll make a Dead Cells 2. We’re more open to creating more content and opening the game up more to the community. If we did make a Dead Cells 2, it’s because we really need the money (laughs). We don’t want to stick to the same thing though, so I think if we did come back it would be something quite different, not a platformer or roguelike along these lines.”
