The massive success of chaotic couch co-op cooking game Overcooked was not just in its game sales, but also in the awards the game was given — Best British Game and Best Family Game at the British Academy Games Awards last year, Best Game at Big Games Awards, Excellence in Design at Independent Game Festival and on and on.
So successful was the game in fact, it was probably a no-brainer to presume developer Ghost Town Games would be releasing Overcooked 2. And soon.
But, no-brainer or not, Ghost Town has just announced Overcooked 2 is in development, and it will be released on August 7th, 2018 on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
The new game will include more chefs, more kitchens, more recipes and more co-op madness. Oh and yeah, Kevin.
Can I say “Yay!”, because, man, that first game was fun.
Watch the official Overcooked 2 announcement trailer below. Then count the weeks. Less than eight, if my calculations are correct?
