We're excited to announce the development of The Surge 2!

After the success of The Surge, our hardcore Action RPG released in May 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, we are happy to announce the renewal of the partnership between Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive and the development of The Surge 2, with a release date planned for 2019 on consoles and PC.

The Surge 2 keeps what fans and critics loved about the original – hardcore combat utilizing a unique, dynamic limb targeting system and deep character progression – while also expanding greatly upon the formula.

The Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine.

Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system. In addition, more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones give players a vast arsenal to build their character with, in their fight against the array of diverse new enemies and bosses.

More information about The Surge 2 will be unveiled at Le What’s Next de Focus – February 7-8, the yearly press event organized by the French publisher in Paris. Deck13 will talk more about their new title to the international press, so stay tuned.

The Surge 2 will release on consoles and PC in 2019.

That is great news! I can hardly wait! Loved the game!
I wouldn't mind co-op multiplayer option and more story telling though.

I hope i can use my saved game with the character build 🙂

That's fantastic - I loved The Surge and really hoped it was successful enough for a sequel. The story was awesome and I really enjoyed the setting. Please keep hidden boss challenges for a v2 weapon, and please add some kind of parry/counter mechanic - and maybe shields?

I also really appreciated how much work went into the PC version. I bought the game twice - PS4 and PC - and the amount of graphical settings, plus Nvidia Ansel, make a huge difference. I love setting up and sharing cool screenshots.

Regardless, congratulations, and I really look forward to this.

wow super happy about new surge !!!!

@iyagovos said in Announcing The Surge 2!:

hardcore combat

If you are not very good at games maybe.

utilizing a unique, dynamic limb targeting system and

Which was neither unique and certainly only lowered the dynamic of the combat.

deep character progression

Now that is just plain lying, a single system with almost no options doesn't qualify as deep.

while also expanding greatly upon the formula

Which was copied 1:1 from dark souls and will never be a good or popular as the original.

Please release some original games and not a continuation of an already mediocre and bland title that clumsily tries to copy good games. Good thing I shorted fh shares.

@Cepheiden Welcome to our forum! I hope you enjoy your stay 🙂

@Cepheiden Why come here to talk trash man? I mean everyone has their own opinions but you state your's as if they are fact. I don't think that the surge copied anything from dark souls. But if it did to me they did it better. I've played through ds3 but I enjoyed the surge a lot more. Now of course the surge had its flaws but it was a major improvement over LoTf. I may be biased though because I've never really liked fantasy settings over sci-fi onces.

Also really excited about the surge 2. My only problem was the boss amount. If there are 9+ this game will be perfect. And more robot enemies.

@iyagovos I know the game is nowhere close to being released or finished but i would love to know some of the thoughts concerning these areas.

multiplayer? if so cross platform?

Will there be any system that allows us to upgrade mods (use two of the same to produce next tier that costs the double amount of energy?)?

Will the crafting mechanics be improved, if so how?

What types of weaponry do y'all think should be added (shields?!?)

dynamic enemy spawns? (to keep you on your toes)

more one time loot? (so if you miss it this time you have to do a new game to get it?)

New protagonist? Could the S2 use our previous game's data to some extent?
