Just before the start of A Plague Story: Requiem, the developers say that this game will mark the end of the series. The first game from Osobo Studio, A Plague Story: Innocence, was a sleeper hit that caught on with fans due to its eerie environmental design, dark atmosphere, as well as the sibling dynamic between Hugo and Amicia de Roone that was an integral part of its narrative. The sequel will follow some of the plot threads from the last game, including the supernatural rat powers possessed by Hugo himself.
