The game will be released on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC. A cloud streaming version will also be available on Switch.

“After the original game’s epic finale to a heartbreaking story of resilience, players will embark on the emotional journey’s second chapter,” Asobo Studio’s head of communications Aurélie Belzanne previously said of Requiem.
“They will follow Amicia and her brother Hugo on a perilous new quest, doing whatever it takes to survive a brutal, uncaring world.
“A Plague Tale: Requiem is the direct sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. Previously, players lived the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending adventure through the darkest hours of history.
“Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo came to know and trust each other, as they struggled to survive against overwhelming odds and fight to find their place in the world.”
