Premiere of A Plague Tale: Requiem took place less than a month ago, on October 18. Even then, there was a lot of speculation about the third installment. The game's director, Kevin Choteau, revealed however, that the release of a sequel is not in the plans - although everything was to ultimately depend on the reception of the second game. As we know, Requiem met with favorable reviews from critics, it also enjoys a large (and very positive) following on Steam. It is very possible that this could have quickly convinced the developers.
Why such a supposition? The official website of Asobo Studio posted a new job offer for the position of Senior Game Designer with a focus specifically on A Plague Tale. As the ad states:
"For a future production, we are looking for a Game Designer to strengthen the team behind A Plague Tale: Requiem from the pre-production phase."
One of the requirements for this position is to have played A Plague Tale: Innocence and/or Requiem and possess experience with action adventure games. So it is very likely that the offer is for something related to these productions, such as an expansion or just a continuation of the latest installment of Amicia and Hugo's adventures. Interestingly, prior to the release of Requiem the creators have posted a similar announcement for the position of animator of a certain project, which ultimately turned out to be the new A Plague Tale.
However, it should be taken with a pinch of salt - it doesn't have to be about another A Plague Tale, it may simply be some game from a related genre.
It seems important to note that the potential employee will "participate in various phases of brainstorming." So whatever Asobo Studio is developing, it is at a very early stage of work.
