Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous official artwork without the logo

[Update]: Wrath of the Righteous has now been released, and as I've detailed in my review, it's a genuinely impressive CRPG!

The original version of Pathfinder: Kingmaker was rough, and that's putting it gently. The balance was all over the place, the performance was surprisingly shaky for an ARPG, and there were also quite a few bugs roaming around, and I don't mean the Bugbear kind.

To their credit, Owlcat Games quickly sprung into action and started to iron out most of the annoying problems, eventually going as far as to release a massively improved (and entirely free) Enhanced Edition. As such, the current version of Pathfinder: Kingmaker is actually pretty darn solid, though it does still bear some of the clunkiness and incomprehensible mechanics that have plagued it since launch.

Fixing those will probably take an entirely new game, which just so happens to be exactly what Owlcat Games are currently working on! The details are basically nonexistent right now, but what I can tell you is that the new game will be called Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous and that more information will be coming soon.

Once the full reveal goes live I'll make sure to let you know, but until then all we can really do is sit and speculate about what the potential sequel will bring to the table. Personally, I'm hoping for more in-game information so I don't have to constantly rely on Google for explanations, as well as slightly less reliance on random dice rolls as it can feel absolutely soul-crushing to lose simply because all of your characters' arms decided to stop working at the same time.

But whatever the changes might be, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing just what the next Pathfinder game will be all about!
