Probably bloodied: the night sequel ritual in the work


The term “second version in development” is enough to drive anyone crazy, but especially when the game involved is “Blood: Rite of the Night”, a tribute to the Castlevania game.

In a recent financial report, Digital Bros., the parent company of Bloodstained publisher 505 Games, mentioned some games as part of its “IP Portfolio”. These games include Control, Death stranded, “Ghostrunner” and “Blooded: Ritual of the Night”, all of which have been successful in various ways.

Both Ghostrunner and Bloodstained are considered to have a second version under development- We already know about Ghostrunner, But the news of “Bloody Sequel” is new. Unfortunately, this is also the only news-there is no release date or even a release window.

Bloody night: “Night Ritual” was announced on Kickstarter in 2015, with Castlevania alumnus Koji Igarashi at the helm. It raised a total of $5.5 million and remains one of the most successful Kickstarters on the platform. It entered the Switch in 2019 and received some lukewarm comments due to performance issues, but then some patches were released to improve the game’s frame rate, visual effects and latency.

According to DigitalBros. Financial reports show that the game has sold more than 1 million copies, and the “expected lifetime income” is at least 25.7 million pounds (36.5 million US dollars).
