Developer Crate Entertainment considers the possibility of a Grim Dawn 2

What’s next for Grim Dawn? How about a sequel? It’s one of the things that developer Crate Entertainment is taking into consideration according to a recent interview with game designer Kamil “Zantai” Marczewski. That said, it sounds like things are very much in the concept stage, so don’t expect news for a fairly long while:

“We’re taking some time to think about what we want to do with a sequel. We are currently developing several new titles, so the team is staying busy! Grim Dawn is obviously very dear to us, so while we are thinking about Grim Dawn 2, development has not started.”

As for the immediate future of the ARPG, Marczewski affirms that it will continue to receive new updates and releases. Readers will recall that the most recent update was pretty substantial, with Monster Totems dotted around the map and a beefy list of item updates. You can also see where Grim Dawn fell in a side-by-side comparison of other online ARPGs in Tyler’s Not-So-Massively column.

I love Grim Dawn. While i tried to like POE it just felt too disconnected and I always lose interest. I am always impressed by the support they’ve given Grim Dawn and will definitely continue to support this game. It has always been installed on my computer and always will. It’s just fun.

Ive been supporting Crate & Grim Dawn since B18 alpha when all the game had was 3 masteries and the first act. Not only is Grim Dawn considered one of the best ARPG’s ever created but Crate is one of the best game dev studios to date, the team is only 13 devs and they created what probably is one of the best RPG’s i have ever played.

Currently i have over 1200 hours in Grim Dawn and i’ll back anything these guys put out, they know how to put out some content. It sucks to know GD2 isn’t even currently in development (which a lot of us know it’s not from zan saying this a lot earlier) but not gonna lie, i really wish it was. The ARPG landscape is still ripe for the taking and i seriously wish they push for more online component for GD2 but the chances of that are slim to none.

Either way i’ll currently support their next dev title so GD2 can become a thing in the future. Just hope they don’t whiff on these next 2 projects they’re working on which i believe would affect the chances of getting a sequel greatly.

Crate has done a fantastic job with Grim Dawn. They expanded the game while remaining true to its origins. They did what they set out to do, take the Titan Quest engine and go deep on all the systems in a dark, grim world.

Whatever they do next is going to be interesting.

Probably one of the best ARPG worlds to play in along with some of the best music ever also.

Id kill for some sorta fps rpg based off of the Grim Dawn IP

Imagine GD 1 still getting updates and Crate working on GD 2.

Havent crowd funded something since… well… since Grim Dawn 1 was being crowd funded. lol.

If they end up moving forward with this, Id certainly back them. Got almost 500 hours in Grim Dawn, well worth the money spent.

They would be self funding this time I imagine, that crowdfunding was for not only developing the game but getting that company running.
