Serial Cleaners is the sequel to the slightly-different Serial Cleaner, a stealth puzzler that delivered on concept but not on content. In case you missed it, we're highlighting Serial Cleaners and sharing the new gameplay trailer, which you can view below:

Serial Cleaners takes place in 1990's New York, and gives players control of four different mob cleaner characters. Your job? Clean up the bloodiest jobs in New York, and don't get caught. Serial Cleaners combines stealth gameplay with puzzle action, and expands from the original with new maps, characters, and more. The early gameplay trailer specifically showcases one of Serial Cleaners' new maps and the playable character, Psycho.

Serial Cleaners doesn't have a definitive release date yet, but it set to release sometime in 2021. Exact platforms also haven't been revealed, but Serial Cleaners is coming to PC through Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG. It's also heading to consoles, which presumably means Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, and PS4, and possibly even Nintendo Switch.

If Serial Cleaners successfully evolves the intriguing gameplay from the original while expanding on it and strengthening its weaknesses, Serial Cleaners 2 could potential make a place on our list of best Xbox games.
