505 Games just announced that Puzzle Quest 3 is in development and will be launched later in 2021. This will be an all-new installment to the high successful puzzle-RPG franchise.

This series has generated over $200 million in revenue and has reportedly hit an estimated 32 million users globally across the franchise. The development team at Infinity Plus Two will be working hard ahead of the release later this year. It will be a multiplatform release (PC and mobile confirmed already) that is free-to-play (F2P).

Puzzle Quest 3 is slated to be a "return to its origins" and will have a greater focus on RPG mechanics than its predecessor.

Puzzle Quest 3 returns to its origins, recalling the deep RPG mechanics and signature heroic storylines that made the original a standout hit within the Match-3 category. Now featuring a twist on traditional puzzle gameplay, PQ3 offers an intense 1-versus-1 battle system realized in a 3D game world. Taking place 500 years after the original Puzzle Quest, players will embark on a heroic journey across Etheria to discover the meaning behind the ancient Red Dragon's dying words.(...)

Puzzle Quest 3 features an all-new adventure to become the ultimate hero, battling and building a legacy in thrilling head-to-head combat. The game includes an immersive battle system where players unleash torturous spells and paralyzing attacks through the power of gem-crushing in an enhanced turn-based system. Puzzle Quest 3 once again pushes the genre limits by introducing new and imaginative gameplay mechanics. The game will be available to fans worldwide, across a wide variety of mobile devices and PC later this year, with additional platforms to be announced.
