Hello Games' Joe Danger 2: The Movie went gold yesterday afternoon, meaning that it's but mere days or weeks from launching on the Xbox Live Arcade, for which it is currently a platform exclusive, as no other versions of the game have yet been announced.
"When we heard the news that we'd gone Gold, everyone was shouting and celebrating," Hello Games' Sean Murray revealed to Eurogamer. "I felt really sad for a minute though and I couldn't figure out why. I think it's that Joe Danger is done now. We're not going to make another one."
That's right... Joe Danger 2: The Movie will be the diminutive stuntman's last hurrah, which means it's also the biggest and most definitive one since Joe Danger 1, with variety, new vehicles and objectives promised.
"Don't get me wrong, I think this game is great, the best thing we've ever done and it feels like we finally nailed it. It's a huge game made by a small team. We owed Joe a great swansong, a game that hopefully people still remember playing in ten years time. I hope we've done that. Saying that out loud, I just remembered how I should go join the rest of the team to celebrate now," Murray concluded.
Joe Danger 2: The Movie is out later this month. September, in case you've lost track of time. No specific date is currently forthcoming. Bah! Look at the gameplay trailer below to see Joe Danger 2 in action.
