An animator may have spilled the beans that she has been working on Knack 2 since last year. This leak might be an indication that the PS4 launch title is finally receiving a sequel in the near future.
As noted by a user on NeoGAF, animator Mindy Liang posted some information about working on Knack 2 over at her LinkedIn page. She has since deleted the information, but GAF archived the post.
She initially posted that she has been working on the Knack sequel since May 2015. She “animated 3D character motions and cutscenes for the PS4 system“. Liang did also a similar job for Final Fantasy XV where she was responsible for the animations of the game.
The first Knack launched alongside the PS4 and was met with mixed reviews. While the graphics were praised, the repetitive style of gameplay and linear level design didn’t appeal to everyone. Sony has never mentioned that a sequel is being made, so this LinkedIn profile is the only evidence of its existence so far.
Even though the PS4 is already popular, it does lack on some platform games. Ratchet and Clank will be released later this year and not much else. Knack 2 might be in development to help fill that void.
