With almost no fanfare or explanation, Daedalic’s upcoming PC Strategy RPG Blackguards 2 has manifested its own Humble store page, and is listed with the shockingly close launch date of January 20th. Even more shocking is that they appear to be offering Steam keys for the title, yet as of this writing, there is *no* Steam page for the game. Fairly odd, considering that the game is (according to the Humble Store) due out in less than two months.
Another interesting aspect of this is that the sequel is listed as being $29.99, which is $10 less than what the first game is currently priced at on Steam. Many have theorized that the lower price point and the short development time between the sequel and the first game is the result of Daedalic being in financial trouble, and that their early inclusion of the first Blackguards in a previous Humble Bundle sale was them trying to get a quick infusion of money. It’s pure speculation, however.
Regardless, it looks like fans of the first game should have something to look forward to after the new year.
