Bulletstorm Will Not Be Getting A Sequel Any Time Soon

by Chris CalasahanApril 10, 2012

Last year’s 1st-person shooter by Epic Games & People Can Fly, Bulletstorm, filled with bad language and chaos does not seem like it will be receiving a second installment anywhere in the near future.  Epic Games’ Mike Capps had discussed this disappointing news with GameSpot at PAX East this past weekend.

[quote]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.  We haven’t announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon.[/quote]

So while, this isn’t officially written in stone, but People Can Fly are already working on an unnamed project.  Capps adds that Epic Games would consider giving some thought about making a second Bulletstorm title in the future.

Mike Capps went on to discuss weak sales & piracy of the PC port of this title played a major role in Epic Games deciding in not going forward with the sequel.  It performed well among most critics but didn’t seem to deliver a great enough experience for the majority of gamers as it didn’t sell the way Epic Games had hoped.

This is disappointing news as I personally found Bulletstorm to be an enjoyable title.  While the dialogue was foul mouthed and immature at times throughout the campaign, and the story was also a tad bit predictable at some points, it was still an action filled, chaotic shooter that had a very interesting concept with it’s skill shot system.  With a very arcade-like high score approach to the levels it gave this 1st person shooter a unique way to entertain players.

Does this disappoint you?  Would you liked to have seen a sequel or is the franchise better off dead?

  • Foxy Chicken

    Bulletstorm was awesome, and the fact that it won’t be getting any sort of follow up in the near future totally sucks. Out of all the games that came out last year it was one of my favorites. It is raunchy, fun, and unlike anything else on the market. It deserves to have a sequel.

  • Melisa Klenke

    Just publish a checklist of them all due to the fact Gears of War 3 has unique unlockables if you have played other Epic Game Titles so if you could write a record of them all. Any platform would do thanks. :)

  • Roslyn Pasley

    I came across an article the other day that Epic Games wasn’t going to work on the 3ds because they couldn’t get the Unreal Engine 3 running on the Nintendo 3ds. I was wondering how this is possible since they can get it running on a iPhone 3gs and the 3ds is way more powerful than the iPhone 3gs.
