Epic Games president Mike Capps has confirmed to Gamespot that People Can Fly were indeed working on a Bulletstorm sequel before Epic moved it to a different 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,” he said.
Capps blamed poor sales for Epic’s decision to move away from the franchise “From a sales perspective it was good, but not amazing. I think EA was hoping we’d do better.” He also mentioned the game’s PC port, and it claimed its sales were hurt by piracy.
“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.”
Capps did say the studio “would love” to return to the Bulletstorm. ” 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.”
Still, it’s nice to know People Can Fly are working on something new, and we are hoping to hear more about their up-coming project soon.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
