Some reviews have already stated that Enslaved may not get a sequel, even if the sales will be good, but Ninja Theory, the actual developers of the game, disagrees.
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has yet to be even released, but they stated that it could be possible, but they don’t want to get their hopes up, despite many great reviews.
“We’ll let the game come out, we’ll see how it does. If it does OK, if it actually looks like it’s got legs, we’ll start thinking about what’s next. The thinking from the beginning was not to assume there would be a sequel, just to put everything into this game. It’s a new IP so let’s not plan for a sequel because the chances are we’ll only disappoint ourselves. So we mentally prepared for that – we’ve not planned for a sequel. But if it gains some traction, I’d like to see something happen.”
A previous game from Raven Software, Singularity, also recieved many great reviews, but did not sell too well. Let’s just hope and pray this does not happen to Enslaved, as this is certainly promising.
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West will be released October 5th (tomorrow) for the US and October 8th in the UK. Expect our review in just over a week.
