Just a short nap
The third and final round of DLC for Citizen Sleeper, titled PURGE, is set to arrive on March 30th, 2023. Many expected that to be the end of Citizen Sleeper and indeed it is, but it seems there’s more stories to come within the Citizen Sleeper universe.
In an interview with DualShockers, the creator of Citizen Sleeper, Gareth Damian Martin, opened up about the future of the IP. While Citizen Sleeper proper may be finished with the PURGE DLC, it seems something else within the game’s universe is in the works, and we’ll be hearing about it soon.
“As far as Citizen Sleeper as a wider structure is concerned, Citizen Sleeper 1 was kind of a test or Citizen Sleeper is kind of a test for me, and I continued it with the DLC. Seeing as the DLC has been recently successful and the game is successful and people are very interested, I’m interested in continuing this series of experiments. We’ll be talking about it sooner than people may think.
When I sat down to make Citizen Sleeper, I was thinking in the back of my mind, ‘I’m going to make this experiment but also I’m going to make it in a way that it’s about things that I’d be happy to spend years and way longer, I’d be happy to spend a decade working in that world. So, that’s kind of baked and seeing as though people have given me a virtual thumbs up so far, I’m going to continue until I maybe get a virtual thumbs down or until I run out of things to say.
When I came to write that final ending, it was really emotional to write. And also, I was so glad in the back of my mind that I could be like, ‘this is not the end’. Because I really feel like I have so much stuff I want to explore, I want this to be a world I’m interested in exploring for a long time.”
