The next generation of consoles is on the horizon and with it, speculation of titles that may release with them at launch.
Based on a recent leak, it appears we may have an idea of at least one new title that will release on both the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5. In the past, developer Ready At Dawn has teased that they are working on another triple A title, but it has never been confirmed if it is a sequel to 2015’s The Order 1886.
According to a recent thread by NeoGaf scooper OsirisBlack, we have the description of a trailer for what could be a sequel to the Playstation 4 exclusive. Despite OsirisBlack’s track record of providing reliable scoops though, we must take this report with a grain of salt.
In the thread, the scooper claims that they got to see a vertical slice of a next generation title. One of the most noticeable aspects of the footage is that it features a man searching through a dark room with a light device on his shoulder before opening fire on a mysterious creature with yellow eyes and multiple arms.
This vaguely sounds like the description of a knight of the Order facing off against a werewolf as they did have yellow eyes in the previous game. More importantly, OsirisBlack implies that the game is “on another level,” and while the leak doesn’t explicitly say that it’s a sequel to The Order 1886, it sounds likely that it is.
Xbox Series X/PlayStation 5
What makes this scoop interesting is that it reportedly will be released on the Xbox Series X, as well as on Playstation 5. This is an interesting development as the previous title was a Playstation 4 exclusive, but it isn’t impossible.
Between the game’s release in 2015 and now it is possible that Ready at Dawn was able to purchase the rights to the franchise from Sony. At the moment though all we can really do is speculate and be excited about what sounds like an impressive follow-up.
The Order 1886 released on the Playstation 4 in 2015 to a mixed to negative critical reception with the game’s short story being one of the chief criticisms.
