Bulletstorm 2 Is On Hold

After People Can Fly released their first-person shooter Bulletstorm last year, they started work on a sequel. However, parent company Epic Games decided to move them to an unannounced project.

"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," Epic president Mike Capps told GameSpot. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon."

"I'd love to go back [to Bulletstorm]. I think there's more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I'd love to see another project, but right now we don't have anything to talk about."

Capps added that while the reviews of Bulletstorm were solid, the sales were below expectations. The PC version's sales were particularly poor.

"We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

Last year, a rumor went around that People Can Fly's next project would be a prequel trilogy for Gears of War. It seems plausible that Epic would hand over the reins to PCF. The Polish studio created the PC port of the first Gears. Furthermore, Epic owns a majority stake in the studio.
