A future Into The Radius update will introduce official mod support, as CM Games reveals a "second chapter" is in pre-production.
Fully released in 2020, CM Games revealed Into The Radius is now entering "it’s final development cycle," confirming two last major updates are on the way. Advising Update 2.7 focuses on "refining the story, technical improvements" and collectibles, Update 2.8 introduces official PC VR mod support. "We aren’t ruling out the possibility of mod support for the [Meta Quest 2] version as well," states the team. No release windows were provided for either update.
Notably, CM Games also denied plans for any Into The Radius paid DLC, instead revealing that a currently unnamed sequel has entered development. Much like the original game, this will also release first in Early Access.
We are in the pre-production phase, and will follow an Early Access development model like before when the time is right. The original ITR is a testament to how much our community has helped us in developing the game, and we want to continue this trend in the sequel. As a matter of fact, many of your suggestions and ideas have been taken into account even in this new installment.
We'll likely be waiting a long while before getting any further details about this next entry. "It's far too early to answer any questions about the sequel just yet," the team says, asking for patience and stating they'll publish an FAQ "when the time is right."
Into The Radius is available now on PC VR and Meta Quest 2.
