If you’ve played Little Nightmares or Little Nightmares II, you’ll know two things: it’s pretty creepy and that it’s a fantastic series with both games scoring well amongst critics and fans alike. Well, Tarsier Studios, the developer that made the games, has confirmed to IGN that they’re finished with the series and their efforts will be geared towards new IP going forward. It’s not all doom and gloom though, as Bandai Namco has shown interest in carrying on the series in some way saying “We have nothing to announce at this moment, but since we received so much love from fans all around the world with the release of Little Nightmares 2, we feel energised to deliver more content in the future.”
Bandai Namco owns the Little Nightmares franchise so it’s easily possible for them to assign the future of the series to another developer; who that could be is anyone’s guess at the moment, but it’s exciting to know that the publisher isn’t quite done with the story yet.
