Is Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Set To Return?

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West - like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - deserved to do so much better at retail. While it garnered a fantastic critical reception - including a highly respectable 82, right here - Enslaved failed to find its audience despite being a great game with gorgeous environments and some sound ideas.
So, it's heartening to hear that Namco Bandai, despite being understandably miffed at the game's commercial performance, is still considering a future for the potential franchise.
"It didn't perform as well as we hoped it would, but we're very proud of how it was received by both the media and the gamers who have experienced it," said Namco Bandai marketing director, Lee Kirton. "I can't discuss where we are in terms of a sequel, but we're looking at reviews and feedback from the press and because of the gameplay and quality that Enslaved delivered, we see it as a great catalogue title going forward."
A return to Enslaved's overgrown post-apocalyptic urban landscape would be incredibly welcome in our book, so lets just hope that talk of a sequel continues, shall we?
