The much-anticipated sequel to Limbo, codenamed Project Two, will not see a release date for at least two more years.

"We took a lot of financial risk to release Limbo only when we felt it was ready and we are prepared to do so again," explained director Arnt Jensen.

Using the Unity 3D game engine, the sequel will be easier to port to multiple systems than Limbo was: "With our own technology, we spent a lot of time and money porting Limbo. With Unity this will be easier."

Playdead Studios has confirmed that the new game will feature 2.5D platform gameplay and will incorporate some ideas that were cut from Limbo.

Project Two will also ditch the infamous monochrome look of Limbo, which many other games developers have tried to recreated since the games launch in 2010.

The sequel will be released on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3. The Unity 3D game engine is also compatible with iOS and Android devices.

Within a month of its release, Limbo had sold more than 300,000 copies. The Mac OS X version of the game was awarded with an Apple Design Award earlier this year.
