One of the best (timed) exclusives of PlayStation 4 is making its way to PC in a few months. Nioh 2, just like its predecessor, was released on PS4 first. A PC version is already confirmed, but no Xbox port has been announced. What’s next though? Will we be getting a new Nioh game or is that it?

Fumihiko Yasuda, head of Team NINJA recently gave an interview to Famitsu where he claimed that the Nioh franchise will have a break next year. We will still be getting a PC and PlayStation 5 port of the game on February 5, 2021. However, don’t expect a new Nioh game anytime soon.

“At Team Ninja, the seven years-long development of Nioh series will reach a resting point, and there are several projects that will begin full-scale development in 2021,” Yasuda said to Famitsu, translated by Gematsu.

Yasuda also gave an interview to a Japanese website 4Gamer. He claimed that multiple announcements of new titles will come next year.

We don’t know whether these new announcements are new IP or if Team NINJA plans to revisit previous franchises. The important thing here is the new titles. This leaves us guessing if we should expect Dead or Alive 7 or not. Team NINJA also didn’t reveal any announcement in early 2021 or later. Whatever happens, we will keep you updated.

Anyway, next year sounds pretty good for PC players. They will finally be able to get their hands on an amazing action RPG game. Nioh 2 is currently available for pre-order on Steam. You can purchase the complete edition for $49.99. We also recommend trying out the first game before getting the sequel.

Nioh 2 for $50 sounds like a very good deal. The game campaign is more than 50 hours long, and not to mention, comes with all three expansion packs. The Steam version will also come with exclusive bonuses not seen in the PlayStation 4 version.
