The Order: 1887 is the presumptive title of a hypothetical sequel to The Order: 1886. Currently, Sony Interactive Entertainment retains the rights to The Order IP. The game would be exclusive to the PlayStation brand with the possibility of a PC release.
It's believed 1887 would follow the epilogue of its predecessor, with Grayson returning as the player character and Nikola Tesla once again in a supporting role. The story would presumably conclude the Ripper sub-plot left unresolved in the first game.
In late December, The Order has declared martial law in London after the death of their Knight Commander, Alastair D'Argyll. Grayson, now a rogue operative associated with The Rebellion, is on the run. Isabeau D'Argyll and the other Knights are out to apprehend him along with The Rebel leader Lakshmi Bai.
Shortly after the release of The Order 1886, Ready at Dawn announced they were working on projects for various platforms. The studio desired to self-publish their games and become a multi-platform developer.
On June 2015, Ready at Dawn's Paul Sams and Ru Weerasuriya expressed the interest in owning The Order IP, with Sams stating the company had gone past the point where that was possible. Weerasuriya added that retaining ownership was their initial plan.
On October 2016, in interview with Game Informer, Ru Weerasuriya stated there was more to be seen from The Order universe. Weerasuriya neither confirmed or denied the development of a future installment.
