Update:

Announced during Xbox’s E3 2019 conference, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be coming next year.

February 11th, 2020 will see the release of the much-anticipated sequel.

Original Story: Ori 2 will be designed around speedrunning!

When Ori and the Blind Forest released, it quickly became a prime candidate for speedruns thanks to its tight controls and excellent platforming. Developer Moon Studios appears to have taken note of that as its sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, will feature a new game mode specifically designed as race sequences geared toward speedrunners.

Spirit Trials, as they are being called, are “fast paced, highly repayable race sequences spread throughout the game allow Ori players to compete asynchronously with other members of the community for in-game rewards.” You’re essentially being put to the test against other players to see who can complete them the fastest.

It is set to release on Xbox One and PC, and is expected to be Xbox One enhanced with 4K resolution.
