DrinkBox isn't denying that Guacamelee 2 might come to other platforms


Not a yes, but also not a no

Earlier today, DrinkBox Studios revealed Guacamelee 2 during PlayStation's Paris Games Week showcase. It's a feel-good announcement because Guacamelee is one of those rare games that most everyone who played it has some sort of affection for. A sequel is equal parts exciting and not-surprising.

However, because Guacamelee 2 was announced at PlayStation's event, there's an implication of sorts that it'll be PlayStation-exclusive to some extent. So will it be? Uhhh, probably not but maybe! But unlikely! But who knows.

We put this question in front of DrinkBox, and co-founder Graham Smith gave us an expected answer that we'll leave here for posterity's sake. "We're currently completely focused on the PS4/PS4 Pro versions of Guacamelee 2, and aren't announcing any other platforms at this time," Graham said.

That sounds an awful lot like indication that it'll make its way outside the PlayStation family of devices. Guacamelee 2 could very well be a timed-exclusive for PS4, though. Or, Sony might just control the conversation around the announce window. Again, who knows. These types of details usually don't trickle out for a while. It is maybe worth noting that the first Guacamelee released on PS3 and Vita in 2013; it came to Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U approximately 15 months later in 2014.

Anyway, DrinkBox also sent along these two exclusive screenshots to share. They're scenes that you'll be able to see for yourself in Guacamelee 2 on PS4 and possibly other places too.
