Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

A sequel to Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is currently in development, according to publisher 505 Games.

In its fiscal year 2020 / 2021 Q3 results presentation, the publisher lists the following notes for the Metroidvania game:

  • Latest creation of Koji Igarashi, the former series producer of the Castelvania franchise.
  • Worldwide publishing rights on PC and all console formats.
  • High Metacritic score (average 81).
  • €30.2 million life-to-date revenues—more than one million copies sold.
  • Expected lifetime revenues of at least €30 million.
  • Second version in development.

It should be noted that while “second version” is an unusual term for a sequel, it is also used for the Ghostrunner section of the presentation, which already has an announced sequel.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via Steam, iOS via the App Store, and Android via Google Play.
