Yager Working on New Game, Spec Ops Sequel Doubtful

Yager is working on a big new project, but the odds are that it won't be a follow-up to Spec Ops: The Line.

When quizzed on the prospect of a sequel and asked whether publisher 2K would be involved, the game's design lead Jorg Friedrich hinted that perhaps sales were not strong enough to secure 2K’s support.

“To be honest, it doesn’t look great,” said Friedrich.

The developer was speaking at GDC Europe where he discussed the emotional impact of player decisions within video games, something that Spec Ops: The Line sought to engage in.

Friedrich argued that storylines hinging on moral choices can make a greater impact in interactive videogames than they do in passive media.

However, he felt that Spec Ops: the Line could have explored this area more successfully. In particular, he believes that Yager’s use of Achievements were one of the biggest impediments to his goal.

Friedrich believes that because Achievements were tied to each of the moral choices featured in the game, the emotional impact of each was watered down as a result.

"I really regret that we had Achievements on moral choices," he said.
