Splatoon Producer Says Splatoon 3 Development Hasn’t Started Yet

Splatoon and Splatoon 2 Producer Hisashi Nogami recently spoke with Weekly Famitsu magazine saying that Splatoon 2 development began right after the first game was released. Development has been continuous with the Octo Expansion and constant updates so they haven’t thought about the future yet but Nogami says the team would “like to return the favour” to everyone who has supported the game. Translation highlights below thanks to BlackKite. Thanks also to Famitsu and Ryokutya.

Feature additions are over at version 5.0.

Weapon and stage additions as well as Splatfests are over. Balance adjustments and Monthly League Matches will continue.

Splatoon 2’s production started moving right after 1 was released. Now we also had production for Octo Expansion so we’re fully focused on the updates, and we still haven’t thought of the future.

For future plans, we’ll think of them after everything is over.

We’re not yet at a phase where we can make a promise, but we’d like to return the favour in some sort of way to many people who have supported us. If you continue to support us, it might turn into reality.
