Schell Games is returning to its popular VR puzzling series with I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy And The Liar, coming later this year.
The surprise sequel will build on the original game’s spy-themed puzzles, in which players would solve various, often dangerous trials and challenges. We really loved the original game’s inventive design (Schell Games built physical versions of some of its levels out of cardboard for prototyping), and it looks like the team will be building on that here. Check out the first gameplay teaser below (though I’ll warn you that there are some puzzle solutions shown).

The game will once again pit players against the evil Zoraxis. In a prepared statement, Project Director Charlie Amis said the team plans to “improve and expand upon the mechanics and characteristics” of the original game. “New and returning players will experience new puzzles in fully immersive environments, complete with an in-depth storyline that makes the thrill of being an elite, super spy a reality,” he said.
Schell isn’t confirming platforms for I Expect You To Die 2 today, but the original came to PC VR, PSVR and Quest over the course of its life. In June of 2020, Schell revealed that the game had generated $2 million in revenue on Quest alone. The developer is also putting the first title on sale as Quest’s Daily Deal on January 28th, with 20% off. From January 29th – February 5th you can also get the game in an Oculus bundle with the also-excellent Until You Fall at 20% off too.
