11 Bit Studios has released a brief 43-second teaser trailer called "A Tease Of Things To Come..." which looks a lot like a potential Frostpunk sequel. The teaser starts off with a quote H. Wilson, which says "He who rejects change is the architect of decay." The trailer then pans out to a bloody hammer in bloody white snow, as if it clearly just been used. The camera then pans along showing blood splatters and footsteps leading to an overturned oil barrel. The oil is staining the snow a dark brownish black. The camera then moves along to a bloodied man sitting on two knees, clearly thinking about what he had just done.
Sounds enticing? Well, you can watch it right here:
There's also a description on the YouTube video. It says this:
The wasteland covered by snow's quilt seems quiet, calm, asleep as if the wind was its lullaby.
Yet, the crimson scars mark the battleground for precious things worth breaking up alliances over.
Discover the truth on August 12th.
There's some included hashtags, but the only one that's even vaguely interesting is the #SnowBloodOil, which at least confirms that it is an overturned oil barrel on the ground, indicating that it looks like a Frostpunk 2, or a game that's at least set in the Frostpunk universe.

Gamescom 2021 takes place from August 25-27, so it makes sense that 11 Bit Studios shows off their game a bit and then goes into more detail at Gamescom. We'll have to see.
