The Surge 2, a follow-up to 2017's Dark Souls-inspired action-RPG, is now in development for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, Focus Home Entertainment has announced.

The Surge 2 releases on consoles and PC in 2019. And now we've got word that sequel is in the works, with a release window of 2019. The second instalment will also be packed with hardcore combat, the limb targeting system, character progression, and more as Deck13 expands on the formula. Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system. When it does, players will take to a new "sprawling, devastated city" which promises "larger and more ambitious level design", so says returning publisher Focus Home in a statement. As for the gameplay, players use some sort of futuristic exoskeleton, which can be customized through the game through upgrades, to battle enemies. "The Surge" is powered by the innovative FLEDGE game engine, which was developed by Deck 13 Interactive for PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

The original game took place within a factory, and its level design was all about unlocking shortcuts to new areas in clever ways, so the idea that Deck13 will be applying the same principles to a much larger space is a very enticing prospect.
