IN A NUTSHELL:
- Disco Elysium will most likely get a sequel;
- The source of the information is Helen Hindpere - the lead writer of the original game.
GamingBolt recently conducted an interview with Helen Hindpere from ZA/UM - the lead writer of the great RPG Disco Elysium, which won the hearts of gamers and several prestigious awards in 2019. During the conversation, the topic of a possible sequel came up, which - as expected after DE's great success - is almost certain.
“The future holds more of Elysium – we’ve spent years designing the world and we’re not ready to leave yet. Martinaise is just a slice of Revachol – and Revachol just a single capital among many others. Who knows where the future will take us?”
The developer also touched on the content of The Final Cut edition, talking a bit more about the new quests.
"They’re separate from the rest of the game, but we still wanted them to have an impact on the main story. The conversations in the vision quests won’t revolve solely around politics – players will be discussing questions of love, hope, money and ambition with both new and old characters. It will reveal new aspects about some of the original characters in town as well as about the protagonist’s inner motivations. Some of those changes will stay with you until the very end – but I’ll leave it to players to discover exactly how," said Hindpere.
Disco Elysium is available exclusively on PC for now. The Final Cut release is set to debut this month and it will also be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The developers have also announced a port of their masterpiece to Nintendo Switch, which will hit the market before the end of this year (no word on exactly when yet).
