Dead Cells was one of the breakout hits of last year, and many gamers are eagerly watching developer Motion Twin to see what it does next.
Curious gamers shouldn't hold their breath, though: a new interview with staff at the studio seems to suggest we aren't going to see a follow-up to the game any time soon.
“If you create a big hit, its best to use this energy to make something different,” noted Game designer Sébastien Bénard in an interview with Game Informer.
"We dont 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 rogue-like along these lines."
He jokingly noted that the only thing that would motivate Motion Twin to create another Dead Cells game would be "[if they] really needed the money."
Also, when and if we get a Dead Cells sequel, it'll likely look quite different.
"We dont want to stick to the same thing though," revealed Bénard, "so I think if we did come back it would be something quite different, not a platformer or rogue-like along these lines,” he said.
Instead, Motion Twin is "open to creating more content" for the original game – so if you're a fan of the high-profile Switch action game, keep your eyes open over the next 12 months and you might find something wonderful coming to the game.
We'll update you as soon as anything is revealed.
