Rogue Legacy 2 Announced

More information about the sequel will drop "in the coming days," according to its developer.


A sequel to the 2013 action-platformer Rogue Legacy is now in development, the game's creator Cellar Door Games announced. The studio didn't have much else to share beyond confirming that Rogue Legacy 2 is on the way. However, "a lot more info" about the sequel will be dropping "in the coming days." For now, Cellar Door shared some in-progress screenshots showing Rogue Legacy 2's more bubble-like art style.

Rogue Legacy originally launched in 2013 for PC. It was then ported to the PlayStation family of systems--PS3, PS4, and PS Vita--in 2014, Xbox One in 2015, and Nintendo Switch in 2018. The game was also ported over to the iOS platform in 2019.

We gave it an 8/10 in our 2014 Rogue Legacy review, saying, "It doesn't have the secrets of Spelunky and it's more predictable than The Binding of Isaac, yet at the end of every game comes a desire to hop right back in, spend your gold on some upgrades and rack up more monster kills, something the game encourages with a challenging new-game-plus option that appears after the credits roll."

Rogue Legacy 2 currently doesn't have a release date and Cellar Door Games have yet to confirm any launch platforms.
