Lo-Fi Studios has hinted that production has begun on a sequel to its long-in-development open-world adventure Kenshi.
The reveal came today via a fresh IndieDB post in which the team outlined the future of Kenshi following its full launch in December last year. As might be expected, bug fixing tops the list, with localisation into Japanese and Chinese languages also being a priority.
However, the post also indicates that the team is “laying the groundwork for Kenshi 2.” Part of that process involves engine upgrades, which the developer suggests will be folded into the first game over time.
For anyone unfamiliar with the title, Kenshi is a sandbox game that claims to offer “the largest single-player RPG world since Daggerfall.” No central story is present, with the game instead prioritising freeform play within its world. The game is primarily the product of a single person over the course 12 years, though the team expanded in the later stages of development.
At the time of writing, Kenshi had attracted more than 10,000 positive user reviews on Steam, granting it a Very Positive rating overall.
