XSEED says Marvelous is thinking about how to keep the Rune Factory series going

Rune Factory 4 came out in Japan back in 2012, and a year later in North America. That was the final game developed by Neverland before the studio closed its doors – though some members of the team were absorbed into Marvelous for Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven’s creation.
Although there hasn’t been any sort of news about a new Rune Factory entry over the past couple of years, XSEED Games executive VP Ken Berry told Destructoid that there have been discussions about how to keep the franchise alive. Parent company Marvelous is also aware that “fans are clamoring for a sequel and are looking for ways to make it happen.”
“There are continuing discussions on how to keep the Rune Factory series going, despite Neverland, the original developers, no longer being around. Hopefully, something will come of that in the not too distant future, because Rune Factory 4 was the best-selling title in the series, I believe, and it’s a series that’s been growing and growing over the years. Marvelous knows fans are clamoring for a sequel and are looking for ways to make it happen.”
