Ghostrunner 2 is coming

Cyberpunk (not that one) parkour ninja slice-em-up Ghostrunner is getting a sequel. Published by 505 Games and developed once again by One More Level, Ghostrunner released in 2020 and was something of a surprise hit, combining slick controls and action and a grungy cyberpunk setting into an exciting action game that felt somewhere between Mirrors Edge time-trial perfectionism and edgy-cyberpunk violence.

Clearly, that critical acclaim translated to commercial success, as a sequel is now coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. After the original sold 600,000 copies since its October 2020 launch, 505 have doubled its investment with a 5 million euro budget for Ghostrunner 2 and a promise to bring the original game to next-gen consoles by the end of 2021. Already a refined action experience, it should be exciting to see what a more developed sequel can do with Ghostrunner's sublime gameplay.
