It Looks Like Detective Pikachu 2 is Still in Development

Announced back in 2019, there's been no word on the Detective Pikachu sequel since then- though it seems the project is still alive and kicking.

Back in 2019, The Pokemon Company announced that it was working on a new Detective Pikachu game for the Nintendo Switch, but since that announcement, updates on the game have completely dried up. With that initial announcement having been light on tangible details as it is, and with anyone and everyone involved with the project having been radio silent about it since then, many have wondered whether it’s even in active development anymore.

It seems like it is. As spotted and translated by VGC, on a recruitment page on the website of the game’s developer Creatures Inc., a programmer referred to simply as “KT” mentions that he is working on “the sequel to Detective Pikachu“, and that his work involves “programming the drawing area, while also creating a system in the Environment Development Office that will serve as the foundation for future game production in general.”

Back when Detective Pikachu 2 – or whatever it ends up being called – was first announced, it was confirmed that it would conclude the story of the first game, which ended on a cliffhanger- though there isn’t much else that’s known about the game yet. Hopefully we’ll begin hearing more about it in an official capacity sooner rather than later, because given the current situation, you wouldn’t be blamed for having forgotten that this was even a thing.
