A follow-up to the 2013 platformer is somewhere out there apparently.
Knack 2 could be a thing according to a LinkedIn profile discovered for XPEC Entertainment 3D animator Mindy Liang. According to the CV (as per NeoGAF) Liang ‘s main job was “animated 3D character motions and cutscenes” for Knack 2 on the PlayStation 4.
This particular section of the CV has since been removed and no details of Knack 2 can be spotted. Is the game in development? It’s not far-fetched, even though the original game was heavily panned by critics. However, it could be that the game was only in the prototyping stage and never received the approval for release.
Either way, there’s been no official announcement of the same since the first Knack launched with the PS4 in late 2013. The title saw some decent sales, especially since it was bundled with the PS4 in many instances, but critics dismissed it for its overall gameplay.
