The first title successfully sold 600,00 copies across all the platforms it released. This will help the release of the sequel, providing it a solid player base to cater to. Furthermore, developers at One More Level are going to design this sequel. However, there is no news on the release date of this game. Since the announcement has happened, we can guess that the game is well into development and we might get a beta date sometime later this year. Apparently, the studio is sparing no cost in the development of this sequel, with the budget being double of the first one.
