Reverb Publishing (Dungeon Defenders) announced today that Sanctum 2 is in development at Coffee Stain Studios for XBLA, PSN and PC. The game is a direct sequel to April 2011’s Sanctum (pictured above), which was a mix of the FPS and tower-defense genres. Speaking with Joystiq, the publisher stated that they are targeting a 2013 release.

Ted Lange, an executive producer with Reverb, described the first game as a “huge success” for Coffee Stain on Steam and expressed his excitement over publishing the sequel. “We all have logged quite a few hours with Sanctum,” said Lange, “and can definitively say that what Coffee Stain has in store for Sanctum 2 will blow the minds of Sanctum fans and new gamers alike.”

Coffee Stain Studios CEO Anton Westbergh stated that Reverb’s “success with Dungeon Defenders proves they know how to take a digital title to market and make it a winner, and we can’t wait to see what they can do with Sanctum 2.”
