Team17 Group PLC (LON:TM17) saw its shares jump in early morning trading Wednesday after announcing the launch of Overcooked 2, a sequel to its double BAFTA award-winning cooking game Overcooked.

The AIM-listed games developer said the game would be released on 7 August on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC, with pre-ordering available immediately.

The group added that the game had been co-developed in partnership with indie developer Ghost Town Games, with the original announcement being made at E3, the leading industry conference for the video game and interactive entertainments industry.

Overcooked 2 is a chaotic co-op cooking game in which players serve a variety of recipes including sushi, pasta, cakes, burgers and burritos to customers in a series of unconventional kitchens (including a hot air balloon, a magical Wizard's school or even another planet).  Players work solo or with up to three friends to prep orders while overcoming obstacles such as fire, collapsing floors, overbearing waiters and of course, the classic kitchen problem of floating work surfaces.

The first Overcooked was released in 2016 and quickly gained popularity, securing the British Academy Games Awards for best British Game and Best Family Game that year.

Team17 shares were up 8.6% at 252.5p.
