Default Things we Know about The Sequel to Pathfinder: Kingmaker

March 6th, 2019, 23:02
Someone posted speculation on next Pathfinder game based on some known/released information:

https://owlcatgames.com/forums/showt…nder-Kingmaker

Pathfinder 2

* The sequel hasn't officially been announced yet but there are many indications that it's coming.
* Tabletop Tuesdays have resumed at Owlcat Studios on a new AP. Everyone is playing the same AP. Tabletop Tuesdays were originally part of Owlcat Studios' work on Kingmaker as a way to develop new content for the game organically and to familiarize the devs with the characters and feel of the game. Resuming them with a new AP seems like a major indicator that Pathfinder 2 is in the works.
* Owlcat hit certain milestones that triggered a Console Port by THC Nordic, this indicates that Kingmaker was a financial success and a new game is likely.
* Oleg (the studio head) referenced thiniking about their new project at Big Deal in a way that implied that there was in fact a new project.

So what do we know about PF2?

* Paizo has spoken out to say that Owlcat (and any other developers) will not be forced to upgrade to Pathfinder 2nd edition rules and can keep putting out games using 1st edition rules if they wish. Given the massive cost in iteration of a new engine and the fact that the 2E rules don't even exist in a final form yet, the next game will likely be based off the same engine and rules as Kingmaker.
* What AP Owlcat is playing has not been disclosed, but since tabletop tuesdays started back up in January, it is likely a fully published AP that was either finished or started before that date (i.e. Not Tyrant's grasp and probably not Return of the Runelords).
* Given the Owlcat thought process about the need for a "Hook" to differentiate from games coasting in on nostalgia appeal (the Kingdom Building was Kingmaker's), it is likely an AP with an overarching system in a similar vein to Kingmaker.
* Given Oleg's discussion of Kickstarter at Big Deal, it is likely that there will be another Kickstarter. News about this will probably not break until after the forum's are reformatted and DLC3 is released.
* Given the issues that Owlcat had with physical Kickstarter rewards, it seems likely that Physical rewards for this next Kickstarter will be minimal.

Despite my rocky start with this game I suppose congratulations are in order. This means the first game had to make a profit as they wouldn't be working on a sequel.

Now lets hope they learned their lesson and don't release another buggy game on release. I also hope it doesn't suffer the dreaded massive load screens again.

I'm looking forward to more Pathfinder goodness from Owlcat Games, but I'm also hoping they will continue to provide support for Kingmaker.

Given their presentation at The Big Deal, I think Owlcat Games reflected on where they went wrong and also on how they can manage things better in future.

I'm pretty sure I will be backing their next Kickstarter project, they've earned my trust!

There will be a dev stream tonight, so join in if any of you have questions:

https://owlcatgames.com/forums/showt…ar-7-18-30-CET

DLC Stream w\ Narrative Designer A.Krymov! Ask your questions here! Mar 7, 18:30 CET

Would you like to see what our 2nd DLC, "Varnhold's Lot", has got to offer? No? You don't care about being part of a mercenary band, taming the wilderness and solving mysteries?

Well, then, maybe you'd like to meet Owlcat's glorious community managers - you know, US? The ones who talk to you every day, post OUTRAGEOUSLY HILARIOUS memes and answer all of your fan mail?

Of course you'd like to! Join us for another dev stream this Thursday, 28 Feb, at 19:30 CEST/ 09:30 PT!

The stream will be hosted by three members of the Owlcat Games CM Team - me (hue-hue-hue, https://twitter.com/ars_l0nga), Alexey (https://twitter.com/FMortheim) and Lisa (https://twitter.com/wooden_dragon). We'll be playing our hot new DLC just hours after it gets released.

See y'all in a couple hours!

A bit too speculative for me at this point but I would certainly fully support a sequel!

I'm fine with buggy releases. It just means I buy the game six months later than I would otherwise.

Kingmaker is a diamond in the rough which I will certainly replay at somepoint. There were certain things, like the Kingdom simulation and how certain areas were designed that I found very frustrating, but in the end I thought it was a great game.

Good for you but it tarnished the release and cost sales.

While Im recently avoiding Kickstarter and early access and instead I buy games after they are actually finished, here I would make exception. Owlcat provided crazy amount of quality gaming time to me and any cRPG project they announce will easily make it right to the top of my looking-forward-list.
