Attack On Titan 2 Release Date: 2016 saw the release of Koei Tecmo‘s most recent launch, Attack on Titan. The action hack and slash video game from the Japanese company was based on the eponymous manga series, penned and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. Ever since the manga series began circulation, it has received wide acclaim among fans. An anime adaptation that began airing in 2013 also gave a boon to the popularity of the series, and ever since, the story has been widely adapted in a number of ways. However, today we will mainly be focussing on the upcoming sequel i.e. the Attack On Titan 2 with this article of GamingPhobia.
Attack on Titan, the video game, was first announced in 2015, with a cinematic reveal taking place in November. The title was first released in Japan in February, and the following months saw its subsequent release across Europe and North America. While the game was first available exclusively for Playstation consoles (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita), it was later made playable for Microsoft Windows PC and Xbox One. All this was obviously done to reach a wider number of players, and it seems that the creators of the game were successful in their endeavor.
Thanks to the fact that the game was an adaptation of a well-known manga series, Attack on Titan became a commercial success soon after its launch. It outsold many of the games that were released during a similar timeframe. It even surpassed the sales of Capcom’s Street Fighter V during its first week and has since sold well. On a broader level too, the game was received well by critics and players alike due to its appeal. Its story combined some critical portions from the series along with some completely new scenarios. Much to the delight of fans, many of the anime’s key characters were included in the game. The action was great and borrowed much from the anime portrayals. All in all, Attack on Titan was a big success, both critically and commercially. Thus the developers ought to find it lucrative to come up with the next installment of the series, Attack On Titan 2 game.
It is important to note that the manga series is still in continuation, and the game only adapted the chapters that had been outed so far. Fans of the manga feel that there is still a lot more to unveil, so a lot of new chapters would be needed to unfold the story of the origins of the massive, terrorizing Titans. So as it appears, there will be more developments in the story arc, and that certainly leaves the chance that we will see Attack on Titan 2 sometime in the future. When that will happen remains an unanswered question at the time being.
Attack On Titan 2 Rumored Features
If the game is ever renewed for a sequel (incidentally, Koei Tecmo has a record of making games out of popular manga series and keeping them in continuation mode), there could be a lot of things to be added. However, that possibility largely depends on what the creators of the manga see fit for the series in the future. While we do not know about that yet, it is entirely possible that the creators of the game would utilize some creative freedom and come up with a follow-up to the first game as they deem fit. This means that Attack on Titan 2 could have a completely different story as well as new characters to fit a concept drawn largely from the manga and anime, yet still manage to be different.
So in line with that, perhaps Attack on Titan 2 will come with a new set of characters which may or may not belong to the original universe of the story While the first game largely follows the dystopic-fantasy setting of the manga, we think for the new game, the devs could work on a new kind of world in which the Titans have a wholly different significance. Or else, the game could introduce a few extra characters from the manga series as playable characters.
We don’t think there will be mammoth changes made in Attack on Titan 2 in terms of gameplay, so perhaps we’ll see much of the mechanics make a return to the new game (if there ever is one). However, we could perhaps see a few new additions regarding the weapons and abilities of the characters.

Attack on Titan 2 System Requirements
There is no way to know what the system requirements for Attack on Titan 2 will be, considering that we have no clue about the future of the series. So all we have are a few assumptions to go by. We’ll base the possible requirements on the probable release window of the sequel, but as we have said before, this is not official.

Attack on Titan 2 Release Date
To our knowledge, Attack on Titan needed about three years in development, so if the game is made into a franchise, then we could see Attack on Titan 2 surface a couple of years after its announcement. The manga series is said to reach its conclusion sometime in 2017, so perhaps a new game will be announced later next year. If things pan out exactly as we hope they will (be warned; chances are slim), then perhaps we’ll see Attack on Titan 2 release date by 2020.
In conclusion, we will say that it is too soon to speculate on the possibilities of Attack on Titan 2. But given the present situation with the still ongoing story, perhaps we stand a chance to see a new game. We’d be excited in that case; what about you? Let us know.
