The Surge 2 Announced

Last year, Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive brought us The Surge, a fairly well-received sci-fi action-RPG heavily inspired by From Software's Dark Souls. And now, prior to a big reveal during the upcoming “Le What’s Next de Focus” event, this forum announcement informs us that a sequel to the game is already in the works and should be launching sometime in 2019. Bigger and fancier levels, an improved limb-targeting system and deeper character progression, a better engine - it all sounds pretty good to me. See for yourself:

We're excited to announce the development of The Surge 2!

After the success of The Surge, our hardcore Action RPG released in May 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, we are happy to announce the renewal of the partnership between Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive and the development of The Surge 2, with a release date planned for 2019 on consoles and PC.

The Surge 2 keeps what fans and critics loved about the original – hardcore combat utilizing a unique, dynamic limb targeting system and deep character progression – while also expanding greatly upon the formula.

The Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine.

Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system. In addition, more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones give players a vast arsenal to build their character with, in their fight against the array of diverse new enemies and bosses.

More information about The Surge 2 will be unveiled at Le What’s Next de Focus – February 7-8, the yearly press event organized by the French publisher in Paris. Deck13 will talk more about their new title to the international press, so stay tuned.

The Surge 2 will release on consoles and PC in 2019.
