Team17 and The Game Kitchen have announced the development of a Blasphemous sequel, which is scheduled to arrive in 2023. Currently in the early stages of production, the game will be a direct follow-up to the multi-award-winning 2019 action-platformer.
The announcement also came alongside the reveal of Wounds of Eventide, a brand-new and free content update for the original Blasphemous that concludes The Penitent One’s first journey and unlocks the game’s true ending. Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on December 9, 2021, Wounds of Eventide introduces new bosses, areas, and items, and underlines the stark truth that penitence never ends… it only changes.
