Brutal Legend is an action/adventure game developed by Double Fine and published by EA for PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360. Just a month ago, developer Double Fine released a new game Psychonauts 2 and fans can’t help but wonder what the studio will work on the next game. Could it be that the studio might work on Brutal Legend 2? Let’s find out.
Over the years, fans have been earnestly requesting the release of the sequel to Brutal Legend, which was first launched in 2009 that featured Hollywood actor Jack Black. In response to the fans continuous requests, the director Tim Schafer has dropped hints about the probability of glimpsing Brutal Legend 2 in the future.
During an interview, Tim Schafer was asked if the studio might work on Brutal Legend 2 now that they’ve finished on Psychonauts 2. On being asked this question, Schafer didn’t deny this idea although he explained that it would be an extremely difficult project to develop for several other reasons. “That’s a tricky one. I feel some emotional barriers towards that because I really like the multiplayer aspect and people were so crabby about the RTS elements,” Schafer said of the idea. “I’m like wow, which game do we make? Do we make the game that I want to make or do we make the one the fans are asking for? It’s tricky to solve that problem.”
While he didn’t deny the idea of releasing a sequel, it seemed more like Schafer had his heart set to work on different projects rather than on the much-awaited sequel. He said, “My goal is to just play Brutal Legend every Rocktober 13th until the world learns how great the game is.”
News & Speculations
Fans of the game who have been waiting for many years won’t likely see the return of Brutal Legend 2. As per reports, Double Fine has confirmed that Brutal Legend 2 won’t be coming anytime soon as the sequel won’t be happening. This news was accidentally slipped out by one of the members working for Double Fine while they were talking about future projects. What do you think? Could it be true that we won’t ever see the return of Brutal Legend 2? Well, the fact that director Schafer showed no interest in working for the sequel indicates that this could be very much true as he seemed more interested in working on new projects rather than on the sequel.
It was also reported that EA passed on Brutal Legend 2 implying that the original game didn’t do well in terms of sales despite the hype and even involving actor Jack Black. It’s quite understandable why Double Fine decided not to work on the sequel as the studio is currently working on new projects. Cut to the chase, there’s plenty to look forward to what the Schafer and the team are up to next.
