A Plague Tale: Requiem is the sequel to the 2019 A Plague Tale: Innocence, a third person stealth title that took place in Europe during the plague. The first game surprised many with its character-driven narrative and competent linear stealth gameplay. It wasn’t a critical darling, but it had plenty of fans.

Considering the last game made an appearance on Xbox Game Pass at some point, can we expect the same with its sequel?

A Plague Tale: Requiem on Xbox Game Pass

About the studio

A Plague Tale: Requiem is being developed by Asobo Studio, which has a long and storied history dating back to its formation in the early 2000’s. The team began by co-developing licensed titles based on children’s movies such as Ratatouille and Wall-E.

Fast forwarding to the Xbox One generation, Asobo Studio started handling larger projects. For example, Asobo Studio was responsible for supporting many of Quantum Break’s core technologies such as its animation and lighting system.

Today, they’re better known as the core developers behind A Plague Tale: Innocence and Microsoft Flight Simulator, both of which explore state of the art technology in different ways and across entirely different genres.
