Dead Cells is one of the smash hits of 2018, easily surpassing expectations from fans and critics. The rogue-like adventure has had many glued to their consoles and PCs for weeks and Motion Twin has been providing updated support to the game for their fans. Many are wondering if a sequel will be made but according to Motion Twin, it’s unlikely.

When asked about a sequel Dead Cells 2, Bénard shared his personal thoughts on the matter in an interview with Gameinformer:

In terms of a sequel, we know for sure it’s not a good idea to dwell on your success. If you create a big hit, it’s best to use this energy to make something different. I don’t think we’ll make a Dead Cells 2. We’re more open to creating more content and opening the game up more to the community. If we did make a Dead Cells 2, it’s because we really need the money (laughs). We don’t want to stick to the same thing though, so I think if we did come back it would be something quite different, not a platformer or roguelike along these lines.

Post-launch content is expected to come with the latest update adding a new custom game mode and more challenges. Looks like Motion Twin is more focused on supporting Dead Cells than making a new installment, which is mainly it was such a successful early-access title.

Dead Cells is now available for PS4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Check out our review here.
