Greedfall 2 The Dying World is a prequel to the original Greedfall

Greedfall 2 is in the works, set three years before the events of the first game, and is slated for release in 2024.

Greedfall was developed by Spiders, the French developer of RPGs like Mars War Logs and The Technomancer, and was released in 2019 under Focus Home Interactive. The action-RPG was set in an early 17th century style fantasy setting, ravaged by the Malichor plague. Greedfall saw you play an adventuring colonizer sent to investigate the plague.

Spiders will also be developing Greedfall 2 The Dying World, but now under the publisher Nacon, which acquired the company not long after the release of the original Greedfall. “Many fans across the world were begging for this sequel, and we are delighted to be publishing this new game that these fans are sure to love,” said Alain Falc, CEO of Nacon. “We also hope it will appeal to new players and all fans of role-playing games, great stories, action, and fantasy.”

In Greedfall 2 The Dying World, you will play as an uprooted native of Teer Fradee who travels to the continent of Gacane, a place ravaged by war, plague and political conflict. Be it cunning, diplomacy or combat, you must seize your freedom, make allies and try to stop your home from being invaded. Nacon said that Greedfall 2 will give focus on story and player choice but also include new gameplay in the form of more tactical combat.

Greedfall received mixed reviews overall, but the game has its fans who may likely be excited to hear about The Dying World. That being said, Spiders might also be looking to raise the bar here in terms of enticing more players as well as pleasing their core fan base. The studio is currently developing Steelrising, an adventure that takes place in a Victorian-esque setting with marionette-like automatons.

“While we were working on Steelrising, our love of the GreedFall universe never faded, and so we are thrilled to be returning to it,” Spiders founder and director Jehanne Rousseau said. “In this new chapter, players will explore the old continent with its bigger and more diverse environments. They will meet new companions and new factions, and I hope they will have unforgettable adventures.”

Greedfall 2: The Dying World is set to be released within 2024 for consoles and on PC.
