Rumor: The Order: 1886 sequel coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X

The Order: 1886 2 could be in the works, as a recent rumor has pointed to Ready at Dawn developing a The Order: 1886 sequel for the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The claim has been made by NeoGAF user OsirisBlack, who previously released multiple details pertaining to the PS4 Pro before the console was revealed. While OsirisBlack refrains from directly mentioning The Order 1886, their post outlining an alleged unrevealed trailer does touch on details that suggest it’s referencing the 2015 game.

The post reads:

“Man walks into a dimly lit room, light bleeds across the room from a shoulder mounted communication device. It is the most light in the scene. There is a light mist and sparks spew from a torn electrical wire tossing light and particles around as the man cautiously makes his way across the room. His boots leave prints as he walks across the polished floors the dim light showing his reflection in the floor. The wire behind him cracks and slows as it comes to a stop along with all of the other lights in the room shutting off at the same time.

The man covers the device on his shoulder but the light bleeds through his hand. The man pulls a firearm and continues making his way through this large sterile room. A noise behind him and he turns around removing his hand from the device at his shoulder and revealing himself to everyone.

The light illuminates the room and a table he had walked past has been knocked over. The table cloth is still slowly settling on the floor along with all of the other things from the table that have been strewn about. Off in the distance a pair of yellow eyes open and fix on the man. (You will know who he is but I cannot say) he raises his fire arm and fires off several shots.

The flash from the gun illuminating the darkness as the creature reels then attacks. Another set of eyes opens as it runs across the room at him. You can see the impact of the weapon punching holes in this thing as it makes its way across the room. The man backpedals and falls down (Monster is right on top of him at this point) over something as he is trying to get away.

He fires off a few more shots while on his back and scampers to his feet. The monster still chasing he makes his way into the next room and slams the door behind him. You hear a series of clicks and other weird noises coming through the door. The man leans up against it and you hear a deep inhalation come from the other side of the door like the creature is sniffing around for his scent. The man is breathing heavily and removes one hand from the door and clutches his side, blood is running down his side and his pant leg and pooling under the door.

Last shot is the creature kneeling on the other side of the door putting one hand to the blood (creature has four arms) then smelling it. “I have found you.” He almost sings the words then the title screen shows and that’s it.”

OsirisBlack also claimed that the post details a “vertical slice” taken from the game, indicating that the scene will be included in the finished product.

The Order: 1886 is an unlikely candidate to receive a sequel. One of the most highly-anticipated PS4 games at the time, it received a mediocre critical reception and failed to light up the sales charts, too. However, despite its issues many still praised its unique world and its technical achievements, meaning that it could be the ideal game to show off the capabilities of the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X.
