Splatoon 3 Isn't Being Worked On Right Now

Splatoon 3 Isn't Being Worked On Right Now

That's kind of weird, right?

When Splatoon 1 ended, it went out with a bang: the ultimate Splatfest of Marie Vs Callie. At the time people thought it was just a fun popularity contest, but it was later revealed that it was an important plot point for Splatoon 2’s story. And now that we’re reaching the end of Splatoon 2’s life, we’re getting an equally apocalyptic splatfest – Chaos vs. Order, because Pearl Vs Marina would be way too one-sided. In any case, people are wondering, not unfairly, if the results of this final Splatfest will play a role in the story of Splatoon 3.

But according to Splatoon producer Hisashi Nogami, not even he knowsnamely because no one’s started working on Splatoon 3 yet.

"Splatoon 2's production started moving right after 1 was released. Now we also had production for Octo Expansion so we're fully focused on the updates, and we still haven't thought of the future. We'll think of them after everything is over. We're not yet at a phase where we can make a promise, but we'd like to return the favor in some sort of way to many people who have supported us."

On one hand, this isn’t surprising at all: Nintendo’s only got a limited workforce, and the folks behind Splatoon are probably needed for other projects, like Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. On the other hand… people really, really like Splatoon 2, and it was one of the Switch’s big moneymakers. Nintendo would have to be crazy to not consider a Splatoon 3 in the near future.

But that also means that Splatoon 2 will probably be active well after all the Splatfest, stage, and weapon updates come to an end. And that’s kind of good news, if you’re one of those people who hates letting go.

…team Order by the way.
