Will there be an Elevator Game 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Elevator Game 2

Currently streaming on Shudder is Elevator Game, the latest movie from Glorious director Rebekah McKendry. 

The movie is based on a viral sensation that is centred around the titular game but as you can gather from our scathing review, the movie is unlikely to trend as highly on social media. 

Despite the weaknesses inherent in this new terror tale, there is still scope for a better sequel.

But will there be an Elevator Game 2? Or is this one movie that will never rise up to a second level?

Here’s what we know about a sequel:

What is Elevator Game about?

The movie is based on the eponymous online phenomenon, a ritual conducted in an elevator, wherein players move from floor to floor using a set of rules that allows them to enter an otherworldly realm.

The game isn’t particularly fun to play as once in this realm, you run the risk of having your body torn limb from limb. But as the high school graduates in this new movie play the game in order to debunk the myth, they assume they will be safe from harm. Foolish teens! After invoking a vengeful spirit that escapes from the alternate realm, they are picked off one by one! 

What can we learn from this movie? Never tempt fate and always take the stairs! 

Will there be an Elevator Game 2?

At the time of writing, a sequel to Elevator Game has not been announced.

Generally, Shudder, like other cable networks and streamers, gauges numerous metrics before renewing a show or a movie, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some of a streamer’s content, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton, Red Notice etc.) Other times, it can take months before a streamer like Shudder makes a decision over a sequel’s future.

The opinion of movie critics can also determine whether a sequel is given the green light.

Currently, there is no information regards Elevator Game 2. As reviews for the movie have mostly been unkind, there is a chance that a sequel won’t happen. However, there’s a chance that a sequel could improve on what came before, so while we don’t think a follow-up movie will be made, there could be scope for another story.

What could happen in Elevator Game 2?

While the movie is fictional, there is some truth behind its story as the elevator game is linked to a mythology that has been spoken about online. While we don’t think harm will come to anybody playing the actual game, there have been cases where those who have played it have come to an untimely end. Co-incidence? Probably, but we aren’t going to step into an elevator to find out! 

Elevator Game 2 could use a real-life incident as the basis for its story or it could continue the events of the first movie. Alternatively, it could centre around a new group of teens who enter the Red World, the otherworldly place that is the destination for anybody playing the elevator game. With a bigger budget, this world could be more visually impressive than the one imagined in the original film.

We can only speculate at this point as there is currently no information about a sequel. But what do you think could happen in a second movie? Let us know in the comments below. 

When could Elevator Game 2 be released?

As a sequel hasn’t been announced, it’s tough to say. There is a chance a sequel could arrive in October 2024 or at the same time the year following, just in time for the Halloween season. But until we hear more, we are just guessing at this point.

If Elevator Game 2 does become a reality, we will update this page with new information.
