Continue reading the article to know more about the Soul Hackers series and the prediction of the third game.
Overview of Soul Hackers games.
Soul Hackers serves as a spinoff of the critically acclaimed title Shin Megami Tensei which received well among the Japanese and Western audiences. Noticing the popularity, Atlus games made several spinoffs of the game that was appreciated by the audience, including original Soul Hackers. Like the early 90’s game, it had a moderate difficulty that was very tough but challenging at the same time, giving players the time to work on their skills and get good at it. After nearly 23 years, one would think that there’s no chance of a sequel of an older game, but much to everyone’s surprise, Atlus revealed Soul Hackers 2 with the modernized art style, characters, and cyberpunk city.
Release Date of Soul Hackers 2?
After so many years, Atlus games have given players what to expect in the trailer of the game with revamped gameplay and plot with an interesting buildup. Soul Hackers 2 is expected to be released in August 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
When will the third game happen?
As Atlus games have many new projects currently, aside from the Soul Hackers 2 announcement, you can expect the third game to release in five to ten years, as it took nearly 23 years for the sequel of the original game to arrive. If we analyze the timeframe between The first Soul Hackers game release date which came out in 1997 and the second game arriving in 2021, Soul Hackers 3 will release in 2041, which is ridiculous if that’s really the case. We believe the development of Soul Hackers 3 will begin soon if the upcoming sequel is commercially successful and generates a high amount of sales. This is only speculation on our part and it should be taken as it is.
