Koei Tecmo have announced that an Attack on Titan 2 game is in the works. It’s a follow-up to developer Omega Force’s 2016 action title, which released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PC, and Vita. Platforms are currently unknown for the sequel, but we do know it’ll release in early 2018.

While details are pretty sparse, we do have a small overview of Attack on Titan 2, courtesy of Koei Tecmo:

Building on the fast-paced action the series is famous for, and featuring an abundance of new gameplay mechanics, the gripping sequel will be released across America as Attack on Titan 2 in early 2018. Players will once again don the renowned Omni-Directional Manoeuver Gear as they fight and repel the fearsome Titans that threaten humanity, to restore peace within the walls.

Here’s what PlayStation LifeStyle’s Chandler Wood had to say about the original 2016 Attack on Titan PS4 game in his review:

Attack on Titan is an excellent example of a passion project made right. It’s not a simple cash grab, but created with care for fans of the franchise and newcomers alike. It captures the precise feelings I get watching the anime without sacrificing anything for the interactive or visual experience, from the terror of the Titans to the rush of zipping through the air inches away from certain death. While it could have had a more robust RPG system and and a much cleaner HUD, these aren’t big enough issues to detract from the titan amount of fun that Attack on Titan is, each and every nape I cut.

Attack on Titan 2 is set to release in early 2018. Platforms are not yet announced.
