It appears that Knack II is currently under development for the PS4. A 3D animator who has previously worked on Final Fantasy XV is lending talent to the 3D platformer. Based on her résumé, she has been working on the game alongside Sony since May 2015.
An excerpt from the 3D animator’s résumé can be seen below.
Mindy Liang, who is a 3D animator at XPEC Entertainment Inc., has been working on character animations and NPC motions for Final Fantasy XV’s cutscenes since August 2014.
If the information stated in Lang’s résumé is indeed true, it’s likely that Mark Cerny’s team is once again at the helm of the project. Given that she has been working on the game since May this year, it wouldn’t be totally unfair to assume that it could make an appearance at this year’s E3.
Knack was released as a PS4 launch titles to lukewarm reception back in November 2013. It’s likely that the project was rushed in order to launch within the PS4’s launch window. Nevertheless, the game did show plenty of potential, and we’re hoping the sequel achieves it.
We’ll keep you posted on any official confirmation regarding a sequel to Knack once it becomes available. In the meantime, let us know what improvements you’d like to see in the game in the comments below.
