Epic Not Ruling A Sequel Out One Day
According to Epic Games's president, Mike Capps, a sequel to OTT shooter Bulletstorm was in the works, but it eventually got shelved as they moved Polish developer People Can Fly onto a new, soon-to-be-announced project.
"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," Capps told GameSpot at PAX East. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon."
Not that he's ruling out the possibility of a sequel in the future.
"I'd love to go back [to Bulletstorm]," he added. "I think there's more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I'd love to see another project, but right now we don't have anything to talk about."
Bulletstorm sold well con consoles, but fared less impressively on PC, and Capps suggested that much of that had to do with piracy, although he acknowledge that the port could perhaps have been better.
"I think Bulletstorm was very critically successful, and I think a lot of folks really enjoyed seeing something new," he said. "From a sales perspective it was good, but not amazing. I think EA was hoping we'd do better."
"We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."
