As far as they go Image & Form’s Steamworld Dig and their upcoming Steamworld Heist could not be any more different, sure they share a similar name as well as robotic characters but they still seem quite different and like they come from different worlds. However even if this is the case they might not seem so distant as Image & Form are planning a game that connects Steamworld Dig and Steamworld Heist. This is according to the studios Brjann Sigurgeirsson who shared the information during an interview with Power Up Gaming.

This information was shared when asked if Steamworld Heist ties into the previous game, in which he shared the following reply:

“It does, yeah. There are some flashbacks. But there is at least one game coming in between so that game is sort of going to tie them both backwards and forwards.”

Unfortunately while this game is planned the studio currently does not have any details to share with fans at this time. He was asked about what exactly they have in mind to which he responded:

“I’m not sure. *Laughs* Well, I’m not sure I’m going to talk about it. *Laughs* Right now we’re sort of focusing on Heist so I don’t want to get into details about it.”
