Something new in Ready at Dawn's The Order: 1886 franchise could happen, the developer has teased. According to DualShockers, creative director Ru Weerasuriya told Game Informer that "the IP has a future," though it remains to be seen if this could be a new game or something else.

"The best way to answer that without giving anything… how can I say this… Is there a future? Yes. That IP has a future. It's definitely built in that IP," he said. "That future is already something that was built from the very get go, from the first day we started working on it. As you know, since you played the game and for the ones who played out there… there is a larger storyline. There is a macro story that keeps going, it's an IP that is actually bigger than the storylines that we have created. So there are legs to this IP, definitely."

As for whether Sony would remain the publisher for any new game installments, Weerasuriya said, "Well, you'll have to ask Sony that." Watch the full Game Informer interview in the video above, featuring Weerasuriya and Andrea Pessino, the co-founders of Ready at Dawn.

This is not the first time Weerasuriya has talked about the future of The Order: 1886. In May 2015, he explained that the PlayStation 4 game was "never written as a one-off story."

"We feel that The Order showcased the fruits of our labor on technology. That was one of the biggest focuses for the team having come from PSP and jumping directly to PS4," Weerasuriya said at the time. "The first game was more than anything a launch platform to build upon."

"The Order was never written as a one-off story," he added "There is a lot more to tell as you can see from the way the game ends."

GameSpot's The Order: 1886 review scored the game a 5/10, saying the title is "at best, perfectly playable, and lovely to look at and listen to. But it is also the face of mediocrity and missed opportunities."

Ready at Dawn has multiple new games in development, including DeFormers for consoles and PC (made in partnership with GameStop) and Lone Echo for Oculus Rift.
