In recent times, eXputer held an interview with Croteam, going over the development of The Talos Principle 2 and what the future holds regarding the next step in line for the creators. As per the discussion, the game will continue to receive more polish over time, as the studio currently plans on fine-tuning its latest venture to the best possible extent. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t see Croteam making headlines with another game again. 

We always have lots of ideas brewing in our heads; we aren’t fond of limiting ourselves to a single genre. Our next project could indeed be another puzzle game, or it might delve into an entirely different genre. You can be sure that we still have plenty of creative ideas left, and we’re excited about the many possibilities that lie ahead,” Croteam told eXputer.

The Talos Principle 2 came out on November 2, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game serves as the direct sequel to the first The Talos Principle from 2014 but brings along a slew of novel gameplay mechanics, and features in the process.
