Is there going to be The Callisto Protocol 2?

As it stands, a sequel to The Callisto Protocol is looking very likely. Even without considering in-game narrative beats and teases for future entries, Game Director Glen Schofield has practically confirmed it already.

In an interview with Inverse, Schofield said "I want to make a sequel... this is a complete game, but there’s a lot of ideas, cool ideas, we want to do next." As such, this likely isn't the last we'll see from this dystopian space franchise.

On top of that, the game itself leaves plenty of room for extra entries. Without going into spoilers, the ending definitely leaves some threads dangling for sequels to pick up on. If you want the juicy spoilers, check out our The Callisto Protocol ending explained guide.
