Splatoon 2 producer says the dev team hasn't thought about the future of the franchise yet

There will be a future, but just what happens next is a mystery

Splatoon and Splatoon 2 Producer Hisashi Nogami has been hard at work on all things Splatoon 2. There's been a ton of content over the last couple of years, and the final round of fun is coming from Splatoon 2's final Splatfest. So what's next for the world of Splatoon? According to a Famitsu interview with Nogami, he's not sure yet!

Splatoon 2’s production started moving right after 1 was released. Now we also had production for Octo Expansion so we’re fully focused on the updates, and we still haven’t thought of the future. For future plans, we’ll think of them after everything is over.

We’re not yet at a phase where we can make a promise, but we’d like to return the favour in some sort of way to many people who have supported us. If you continue to support us, it might turn into reality.


I figured that it's gonna be a while considering that most of the Splatoon staff are busy working on Animal Crossing New Horizons at the moment. Personally I would love to see a Splatoon spin-off game happen.

I don't see there being another Splatoon game on Switch unless it's a spin-off.

I'd welcome a spin-off, but they better make another one in the not too distant future to keep the momentum going.
