However, while details haven’t been revealed at the time of writing, the roadmap claims that 2023 will be the “most exciting year in Dead Cells history”. Exciting!

We’re taking a little breather from constant alpha/beta/update announcements to kill off the belief that, with the latest DLC ‘The Queen and the Sea’, we are at or near the end of Dead Cells’ lifetime,” reads the update on Steam. “We can see how people ended up thinking this, but reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.

Later in the Steam update, it suggests that at the very least a major content could be headed to Dead Cells. I wonder if it will be an expansion or even a sequel?
