A sequel to indie hit Ghostrunner is in the works.

505 Games, which picked up the Ghostrunner IP for €5 million in March, said the budget for the new game will be double that of the original – though without disclosing specific figures. The Ghostrunner sequel is in development for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, with One More Level seemingly abandoning last-gen consoles and Switch.

The team’s initial budget will be €5 ($6M) million. Gameplay specifics, however, weren’t shared today, and likely won’t be for a while yet considering the team just shipped some extra content for the original.

Nevertheless, that is great news for fans of what turned out to be a hidden indie gem from last year. Ghostrunner has so far sold over 600,000 copies.
