According to a tie-in article trailing a pcgames.de cover piece, Piranha Bytes is in the process of developing Risen 3: Titan Lords. While Risen 2: Dark Waters had a distinctly piratical flair, this one looks and sounds a little more traditional fantasy in its themes.
There isn’t a great deal to go on beyond the announcement that, yes, Risen 3 exists and is being made. Platforms haven’t even been revealed, but the PC is a given since it’s appearing in a PC magazine and it’s a Risen game.
A google translation of the original German suggests Risen 3 is aiming to be a “dark fantasy role-playing game of epic proportions” and when “compared to Risen 2 everything changes.” So no pet parrots you can send to attack people, then? That’s a shame.
Tim didn’t exactly adore Risen 2, but didn’t mind it either. It got a 6/10 from him back in 2012.
