With only rumours to rely on, very little can be said for sure about the release date for Den Of Thieves 2. We know that the production commenced in 2019 and given that Den Of Thieves was in production for 14 years, it’s likely that the team is taking its time. Everything seems to have been affected a lot because of COVID-19, and if that’s true for theDen Of Thievesteams as well, it’s possible that the release could suffer a major set-back and it would affect the release date. Our best bet would be the summer of 2021, but again, nothing’s certain.
