Italian video game publisher 505 Games gave a sneak peek at the sequel to the popular Cyberpunk platformer "Ghostrunner" which was released in 2020.

"Ghostrunner" followed the story of Jack, the titular Ghostrunner, as he worked alongside a group of rebels dedicated to taking down a tyrannical government in a post-apocalyptic world. Ghostrunners are technologically enhanced superhumans who are used as both a peacekeeping and police force by the totalitarian government. Parkour and wall-running mechanics had been combined with quick-paced combat that kept players on their toes with the possibility of being killed in one blow by the game's main villain.

The game had quickly become popular thanks to those mechanics and the cyberpunk aesthetic, with excitement growing after a sequel was announced in 2021. The sequel was one of the titles missing from the 505 Showcase this year and players had hoped there would have been an unveiling at the event.

It was on a stream celebrating the original game's anniversary that One More Level developers gave a sneak peek of the upcoming video game. The release window is set for the fourth quarter of 2023 and the developers opened up about what their vision for the sequel is. They called it an "evolution, not a revolution."

What this means is that the sequel won't be reinventing the wheel, so to speak.

It was the gameplay that launched "Ghostrunner" into becoming a crowd favorite and the developers will be following that closely for the sequel, though it won't be an exact replica of the original. The developers revealed that "Ghostrunner 2" would have "more complex" gameplay, most likely leading to more dangerous stunts for players in-game and threats from stronger villains.

There weren't any sneak peeks into the actual gameplay, players only have the words of the developers to go by.

While there also wasn't a look at the aesthetics of the sequel, developers promised that players would be able to learn more about the world and story of "Ghostrunner" in the sequel.

"Ghostrunner 2" is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
