Little Nightmares, an eerie puzzle-platformer horror adventure game, has garnered a dedicated fan base since its release in 2017. With the success of the sequel, Little Nightmares 2, earlier this year, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of a third installment. Recent rumors suggest that Little Nightmares 3 is already in the works, sending excitement and anticipation throughout the community.

The rumor is confirmed thanks to a job posting on Bandai Namco's LinkedIn profile. The job indicates that the company is looking for a production assistant for the Little Nightmares IP project.  It's important to note that neither Tarsier Studios, the developer behind the first two games, nor Bandai Namco, the publisher, have officially confirmed these rumors. However, considering the commercial and critical success of the series, a third installment would not be surprising.

Little Nightmares and its sequel are set in a dark, twisted world filled with grotesque characters and haunting environments. Players take on the role of small, vulnerable protagonists navigating through the dangerous and oppressive atmosphere of the Maw, an enormous vessel inhabited by corrupted souls. The games have been praised for their unique art style, engaging storytelling, and challenging puzzles, making them a memorable experience for anyone who enjoys a dose of terror in their gaming.

If the rumors prove to be true, Little Nightmares 3 could potentially expand on the series' lore, further immersing players in the horrifying world of the Maw. Fans have already begun speculating on potential storylines, new characters, and locations that could be featured in the game. It's clear that the community's appetite for more Little Nightmares content is strong.

While the rumors of Little Nightmares 3 remain unconfirmed, the excitement and speculation surrounding the potential continuation of this beloved series is undeniable. Fans can only hope that Tarsier Studios and Bandai Namco will soon reveal more information, providing a glimpse into the terrifying world that awaits them in the next installment of Little Nightmares. Until then, players can continue to enjoy the thrilling and chilling experiences offered by the first two games, exploring the dark and mysterious depths of the Maw.
