A sequel to Risen, a game that never made it past the Australian censorship board, is in the works. According to Xbox360achievements.org, the RPG is moving into 'uncharted territories'.
Does that uncharted territory include the biggest island in the world? Only time will tell. The events in Dark Waters occur after the first adventure, and players will be required to banish some beastly creatures back into the deep blue sea (hence the title). Plenty of new characters will pop up, including pirates; and the game will also be using new technology, which should resolve some of the problems that hindered the original. It's still a third-person RPG and many of the world's mechanics remain, but the overall feel is expected to differ greatly.
One screenshot has been released to showcase this new direction. A release date hasn't been confirmed yet, but we do expect to see Risen 2 appearing on Xbox 360 and PC.
