In 2010 a sequel Drakensang 2 - The River of Time
(or short: DraSa 2 - TRoT) was released which takes place 23 years before the start of the the first game.
An addon Drakensang 2 - Phileasson's Secret
is released and a future Drakensang 3
was semi-confirmed by one of the developers.
An MMO (which may or may not be Drakensang 3) called Drakensang Online

whatsoever (really, it has about as many ties to the original Drakensang
series setting-wise as Far Cry 2
has to the first part...

has since been developed and is currently in its beta phase, but it's called Herokon Online
