Despite the good reception that the beautiful Child of Light had a few years ago, it seems that the difficulties after the development in UbiArt Framework and the success of another profile of games in the catalog have discouraged Ubisoft to develop a Child of Light 2, at least for now. This is what Patrick Plourde, creative director of the original game, explains.
” I do not think a Child of Light 2 is being produced right now ” says Plourde to VideoGames Chronicle. ” We take it to Switch and we still sell a few copies, but right now it’s all about games as a service. We can make money with this, but you will earn more money with anything else. That’s the problem of not being independent while doing this.
Interestingly, Plourde himself flirted in the past with the possibility of seeing a Child of Light 2, but it will probably stay in the air, like an idea on the bench. On the other hand, the creative also believes that if a Child of Light television series is finally made, it is likely that this will also trigger the development of another delivery to maximize the IP’s profits.
