Ready Player Two Announced

Ernest Cline, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of READY PLAYER ONE and the highly anticipated sequel,READY PLAYER TWO, participated in this year’s virtual New York Comic Con via a Zoom interview with Wil Wheaton (the audiobook narrator for both books). 

Zooming from his garage with his custom DeLorean parked nearby, Cline surprised fans and Wheaton by unexpectedly unveiling the READY PLAYER TWO’s plot details to the world for the first time. Cline impromptu emailed Wheaton the details on the spot and asked him to do the honour of reading them out loud for all to hear. In a classic comic-con moment, Wheaton shared the details with readers for the first time even as he discovered them himself. Penguin Random House has subsequently released the details (jpg attached):

READY PLAYER TWO will publish in hardcover, eBook, and audio editions on November 24, 2020 in the U.S. and U.K., followed by publication in more than 50 countries. 

The details of Cline’s virtual global book tour will be announced soon, and Cline teased something exciting being planned with Roblox, the massively popular global game platform, similar to the OASIS in Cline’s in READY PLAYER ONE

In their conversation, Cline geeked out with Wheaton about the making of the blockbuster adaptation of READY PLAYER ONE directed by Steven Spielberg and his recent adventures with his DeLorean. He also opened up about his early life, touching on how growing up poor in a trailer park, and working tech support while pursuing writing, helped inspire his debut novel, READY PLAYER ONEIf I hadnt had those experiences, I never would have been able to write the book.” 

Cline offered inspiring advice to all his fellow writers struggling to stay positive in 2020, Something I share with writers who feel like they arent doing what they want to be doing is to draw on whatever is happening in your life because those are the experiences that can help you change your life. Maybe youre having those experiences for a reason.”  In another hopeful thought on 2020, Cline said, “all these artists and creative people in quarantine are going to create a bunch of art that is going to change the world. Thats what art is, its making something beautiful out of the negative parts of life. Thats what I was trying to do with READY PLAYER ONE and READY PLAYER TWO.”
