Detective Pikachu 2, “close to release” according to a Pokemon employee

It’s been a long time since we last heard from Detective Pikachu 2. The sequel to the 2018 Nintendo 3DS title, which was announced alongside the feature film, fell silent immediately after. In short, we haven’t heard from it in over 3 years, except for a Creatures programmer who confirmed, about 7 months ago, that it was still in development. To this day, we still have no official information about the title, although today we have learned something more, and this time it comes from an unusual source: LinkedIn.

Detective Pikachu 2 could be coming very soon

A senior programmer which is part of Creatures Inc. and the Pokemon Trading Card development division is to blame for the fact that the sequel to the detective spin-off is making waves again after several months without any news. In his profile, he has detailed his participation in two titles: one that has not yet been announced as of today, and Detective Pikachu 2 itself, which he indicates that he is «close to launch«. Quite a revelation, considering how long we haven’t heard from him, and that The Pokemon Company is currently focused on the launch of Pokemon Scarlet and Purple.

When could Detective Pikachu 2 be released? We could ensure 100% that it will not be produced in this year 2022. Nintendo’s calendar is already particularly packed with big releases, and the Pokemon franchise itself has its sights set on November, when the ninth generation will see the light of day. However, if the words of this programmer are true, perhaps we should wait for news for next yearin which 4 years would have passed since the announcement of the title, which makes its arrival quite feasible in terms of development deadlines.

And you do you think? Do you think the release of the detective sequel is actually that close? Or that the programmer has been a bit overly optimistic? Write your review!
