John Watson, Technical Director hos Stoic siger i forbindelse med annonceringen:
We are happy that we were able to create a development schedule where the console version of Banner Saga 2 could come out shortly after the PC version. Although our team size dictated what we could do with the first release, we knew that a two year wait for the sequel was just not acceptable, so we worked extremely hard to ensure that console gamers could continue their journey in a timely fashion. Our goal for Banner Saga 3 is to simultaneously ship on all platforms!
Ifølge Stoic kan man sagtens spiller Banner Saga 2 uden først at spille forgængeren, men siger også, at hardcore fans vil kunne fortsætte deres eventyr baseret på valg, man tog i det første spil.
