Announced as part of the Xbox Games Showcase event, publisher TinyBuild has announced the sequel to the popular horror game Hello Neighbor in the form of Hello Neighbor 2. Hello Neighbor 2 was announced with a trailer introducing a whole new story, a new villain and the return to the haunted house of the old neighbor.
Accordingly, Hello Neighbor 2 seems to bring fear on a much larger scale than the original. The game takes players back to Raven Brooks as a local journalist investigating reports of missing people. The player’s investigation takes them back to the abandoned house of The Neighbor, where the fears begin again with a new villain that will attack the player.
After being acquired by publisher TinyBuild, Hello Neighbor 2 is being developed by Eerie Guest Studios (formerly Dynamic Pixels). TinyBuild has invested heavily in the Hello Neighbor game line with plans to expand it into many different gaming platforms. The series once launched a multiplayer version called Secret Neighbor.
