Deadly Premonition 2 looks set to release on PC in 2021
Horror sequel scheduled to hit Steam later this year
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is scheduled for release on PC in 2021.
That’s according to a new annual report from Thunderful Group, which owns the game’s publisher, Rising Star Games.
It lists the horror sequel as scheduled for release digitally via Steam later this year.
Deadly Premonition creator Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro wrote and directed the horror sequel, which was developed by Toybox and originally released for Switch in July 2020.
Deadly Premonition 2 is both a sequel and a prequel to the first game. It involves a modern-day story revolving around two FBI agents who are investigating a case long thought to be closed, and their hope that agent Morgan – now an emaciated, hostile shadow of his former self – can be relied on to help them solve it.
The prequel element, which is set in 2005 and takes up the lion’s share of the adventure, sees agent Morgan investigating a bizarre ritualistic murder in a small (fictional) New Orleans town called Le Carré.
VGC’s Deadly Premonition 2 review concluded: “Fans of the original Deadly Premonition need not worry: this sequel’s tone is spot on, offering another delightfully delirious adventure in absurdity.
“Unfortunately, its technical issues are among the worst of any reasonably high-profile game in living memory: this will drastically affect the enjoyment factor for all but the most die-hard devotees.”
