A sequel for ArtPlay’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night seems to be in development. Digital Bros., the parent company for publisher 505 Games, noted in its third quarter fiscal year 2020/2021 results that a “second version” of the game was in development. This is the same term used for Ghostrunner which is confirmed to be receiving a sequel.

It was released in 2019 for PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch before coming to iOS and Android last year.
