Lords of the Fallen 2, aka the Third Game, is Coming

CI Games’ naming strategy is so silly that the first two episodes of the franchise have the same name, so the third title has the number two in its name.


In 2014, CI Games released Lords of the Fallen for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, before bringing it to Android and iOS in early 2017. The Polish publisher (formerly known as City Interactive) saw the success and began planning a sequel, but the original developers (Germany’s Deck13) left to make a similar Souls clone (that was The Surge, which then got a sequel). It was first developed by Defiant Studios after the in-house concept was dropped, but the team was fired a year after the 2018 announcement, and it was Hexworks, founded in 2020, who brought the game, which runs on Unreal Engine 5, to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC in October 2023. The number 2 was dropped from the game’s name, so it was also released as Lords of the Fallen.

CI Games has now announced via a Polish press release (reported by Bankier, a financial publication) that Lords of the Fallen 2 is in the works, but if the project goes into development hell again and ends up being called Lords of the Fallen, we’ll just laugh. CI Games is planning to release the game in 2026 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC, so a three-year development cycle seems like a very short time, so we have our doubts about the quality of the upcoming title or the effort put into it.

CI Games was paid by Epic Games. No, it’s not just a temporary exclusivity, as the Epic Games Store will be the only way to buy the Souls clone on PC, with distribution and publishing rights held by Tim Sweeney’s company. Epic has also acquired the IP rights…
