Dead Cells has been a major hit for Motion Twin, so it's only natural to think that a sequel would be on the way. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case. In an interview with Game Informer, Motion Twin shares why they're more keen to move onto a new project.
In terms of a sequel, we know for sure it’s not a good idea to dwell on your success. If you create a big hit, it’s best to use this energy to make something different. I don’t think we’ll make a Dead Cells 2. We’re more open to creating more content and opening the game up more to the community. If we did make a Dead Cells 2, it’s because we really need the money (laughs). We don’t want to stick to the same thing though, so I think if we did come back it would be something quite different, not a platformer or roguelike along these lines.
