The Banner Saga 2 headed to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2015

Hopefully it won't be a longship.

The Banner Saga 2 has been confirmed for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015.

We knew that indie developer Stoic was crafting a sequel to its stylish strategy role-playing game, but this is the first we've heard of its launch platforms.

Stoic - a three-man team made up of former BioWare employees - has said that the sequel will continue the epic Norse storyline of the series' first adventure. A third title is planned to wrap up the tale.

The original Banner Saga arrived for PC earlier this year to high acclaim, and is being ported to both PS4 and PlayStation Vita early next year.

There's no word yet on an Xbox One launch for the series' opening chapter.

"The critical reception and widespread fan appreciation for The Banner Saga is overwhelming and humbling," Stoic co-owner and art director Arnie Jorgensen said, "and has the team at Stoic dedicated to delivering a fantastic sequel. We couldn't be more excited."

For Eurogamer, Stace Harman wrote that the first Banner Saga was "a refreshing take on the tactical RPG with a story every bit as engaging as its combat. It is a beautiful game filled with ugly choices and tough consequences."
