It has been revealed that dataminers have allegedly uncovered clear evidence pointing to the impending announcement of Smite 2, a follow-up to the 2014 third-person MOBA. Since being released almost a decade ago, Smite has maintained a consistent audience, even if it hasn’t ever come close to the magnitude of League of Legends or Dota 2 in the MOBA stakes.
Two topics recently surfaced in the decade-long wait for news of a follow-up title that understandably has fans looking tentatively towards an imminent announcement.
Is Smite 2 Coming Soon?
On the Russian Steam storefront, a post reportedly surfaced discussing Smite 2 – but it didn’t hang around for long. It was an advertisement urging users to add Smite 2 to their wishlist, and it was snapped by eagle-eyed gamers and shared on Reddit before it could be removed.
Elsewhere, dedicated dataminers dug up references in Smite to a ‘Smite 2 Founders Pack’. It was claimed on smitedatamining.com that this pack would be made available during Smite’s 2024 birthday event, which falls on March 25. It’s a celebration of the game’s ten-year milestone, and fans are expecting some kind of grand reveal this weekend during the tenth edition of the game’s World Championship tournament in Atlanta, Georgia.
As a free-to-play, accessible MOBA with some unique, innovative features, Smite has effortlessly entertained hundreds of thousands of gamers for almost ten years. It’s not yet known what ‘Smite 2’ will look like, such as whether it’ll ‘overwrite’ the first game, but time will likely tell.
