Looks like we won't be seeing Bulletstorm 2 any time soon. A sequel was in development at People Can Fly, but the project was ditched by Epic.
That's according to president Mike Capps. He said that "initial development" on a follow-up to the over-the-top shooter had begun, but Epic decided that People Can Fly should work on something else.
"We thought a lot about a sequel," said Capps, "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 continued, "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon."
Epic's decision is likely due to Bulletstorm's modest performance at retail. Capps' has already admitted that the EA published game didn't sell particularly well.
"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."
