Child Of Light Director Says Sequel Is Unlikely To Happen

I’m sure a number of you are familiar with Ubisoft’s charming adventure title Child of Light which was built with the stunning UbiArt framework. The game was originally released back in 2014. Many hoped that we would eventually get a sequel, but that has been shot down today by the game’s director who says that it is not the sort of thing that Ubisoft wants to build these days. He says the company’s focus is mainly on Games as a Service which is titles like The Division (Ubisoft) and Destiny (Bungie). Here’s what Patrick Plourde told Video Game Chronicles:

“I don’t know if there’s a Child of Light 2 that is in production, Ubisoft is big, but I’m not working on it,” Plourde said. “Right now, I don’t think there’s a Child of Light 2 being produced… I’m not holding my breath.”

“I don’t think it’s the type of game that Ubisoft wants to make…The company is not an adolescent company, it is a mature company. And the other things, in terms of portfolio, it’s still supported – we ported it on Switch and we’re still selling a bunch of copies, but it’s just that right now it’s all about games as a service. We can make money out of it, but you can make more money elsewhere. That’s the problem of not being independent while making this.”

  1. Noooooo! I’ve been holding out for a sequel 😭 guess I’ll have to continue replaying the original.

  2. That sucks…. Child Of Light is one of my favorite games and I would LOVE to get a sequel.
    It was simply perfect!
    The rhymings, the art, the music, the story, the gameplay.
    Guess I will also play the original again and again :( …
