Yacht Club Games Provides Update On Shovel Knight Sequel, Next Gen Titles
This past weekend, the return of PAX East gave gamers the opportunity to celebrate their favorite video game franchises, while also hearing directly about the future of said franchises straight from their respective developers. Despite the recent corona virus outbreak causing some developers and publishers like Square Enix and CD Projekt Red to cancel their appearances, others still made a big presence at the convention. One such developer was Yacht Club Games, best known for the Shovel Knight series. Many have wondered what the future of Shovel Knight might hold, and now an update on a potential sequel and next generation console games has been given.
As reported on DualShockers, Yacht Club Games artist Sandy Gordon participated in an interview at PAX East regarding their future projects. While Gordon did confirm that the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove saga is definitely closed, he did state that this will not be the end of Shovel Knight as a franchise. As far as a potential next-generation game in particular, Gordon gave this update:
I can’t confirm if we’re doing anything that’s super ‘high-fidelity,’ but we’re definitely thinking about it and always do our best to bring quality content.”
For now, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon and Dig are the big projects that Yacht Club has as a priority. However, Gordon did seem to indicate that there are intentions to make a sequel to Shovel Knight. As he says he is “sure that’ll happen at some point: it’s something we talk about a lot.” Hopefully that sequel does arrive during the next generation of game consoles, so that new audiences can discover the retro joy of that Shoveling Knight.
