New Lords of the Fallen Next Year

A filing on reveals that CI Games signed a binding agreement with Epic Games on June 14th for a new installment in the Lords of the Fallen series. This says it will arrive in 2026 and includes a confirmation that it will be an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC, while distribution rights on consoles remain with the developer. The first two games were both named Lords of the Fallen, so while the report lists the new game as codename "Project 3," we're hopeful for a third game in a row with the exact same title. Here's word:
The Management Board of Cl Games SE with its registered office in Warsaw (the "Company") hereby announces that on 14 June 2024 the Company signed a binding term sheet with Epic Games Inc.

("Epic") pursuant to which the Company grants Epic the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the sequel of the game "Lords of the Fallen" (working title: Project 3) (the "Game") on the PC platform for the entire product life cycle (the "Binding Term Sheet").

The rights to the Game and the Series, including all intellectual property rights (IP), as well as the rights to publish and distribute the Game worldwide on all other platforms, including the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms for which the Game is currently in development, will remain with the Company. In other respects, the Binding Term Sheet provides for standard market terms.

The game is scheduled for release in 2026.
