Denis Villeneuve has in talks with Entertaiment Weekly said that the story will continue to take place in Los Angeles and along the west coast. He describes the pre-production as a “terror-period” and that the climate will be much worse in the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, the landscape will look rather different this time – if anything, the weather will be even more inclement than it was in the 1982 original.

“The climate has gone berserk,” Villeneuve explained; “the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic.”
