Deep Silver announces Risen sequel

Piranha Bytes’ 2009 RPG Risen is getting a follow-up.

Revealed at publisher Deep Silver’s Gamescom press conference this week, Risen 2 was announced with 2011-2012 release window and for both PC/consoles, plural (the first game only saw an Xbox 360 release).

The details are still under wraps, though it was mentioned that better animations and artificial intelligence could be expected; the studio’s currently on the hunt for a new programmer and animator who could achieve just that.
