We had rumblings of a new fantasy shooter in development by Shadow Warrior reboot developer Flying Wild Hog, back in February of this year. Now, publisher Devolver Digital has confirmed to us that Shadow Warrior 2 is in development at the studio.
The game is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a release date pinned for next year. Featured above, a teaser trailer for the new sequel was revealed.
As expected, players will step into the role of Lo Wang yet again, complete with his guns, blades, and his quick wit. Devolver Digital shared a brief synopsis for the game with us:
Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.
The first gameplay for Shadow Warrior 2 will be revealed on Monday, June 15th, at 12:30 p.m. PDT / 3:30 p.m. EDT / 8:30 p.m. BST, via Twitch.
