A few days ago, a misquote led many to believe Platinum had plans to turn Astral Chain into a trilogy.
In a recent tweet, interviewee Takahisha Taura explained the mistranslation further.
記事で『「3部作の1作目として」作っている』と記載されていますが、そんな事実はありません。僕の頭の中では3部作どころかそれ以上に展開できるくらい色々考えている、と答えただけです。 ＞ 『ASTRAL CHAIN』は3部作の1作目？ 追加コンテンツの予定はない模様 – IGN Japan https://t.co/45kjUwjzID

“The article states that it is being made as the ‘first title of a trilogy’ but this is not true. I simply said that I’m thinking about different ways to expand further, be it a trilogy or more.”
Astral Chain isn’t being made as part of a trilogy, but the idea of it becoming one is being considered. When questioned by a fan about a chance of getting sequel Taura replied, “If we’re talking about possibilities, then I think the same goes for all games.”
Astral Chain is set to release for Nintendo Switch August 30, 2019.
