30 years after its original release on the Commodore Amiga, side-scrolling action-adventure Flashback is getting a sequel. Flashback 2 was actually revealed to be in development early last year, but then things went silent. However, the sequel has now re-emerged at Summer Game Fest, along with a new teaser trailer.
Flashback 2 is currently in development at Microids Studio Lyon. Paul Cuisset, the designer of the original Flashback will be supervising the development process. When it was released in 1992, the original Flashback was highly praised for its innovative features and engaging story. The game had some of the best character animations I think anyone had seen at the time. Flashback was regarded to be ahead of its time when it first came out.
Flashback 2 will welcome players to discover a brand new story blending action, puzzles and infiltration. This adventure will take you to familiar places like Neo Washington or the Jungle, as well as new locations like Neo Tokyo or a mysterious space station. The sequel will once again feature the main character of Flashback Conrad B. Hart.
Flashback 2 currently has a release window of Winter 2022 and will be coming to PS5 and PS4.
