Bulletstorm 2's Craziness Would've Been "Through The Roof"
Well, that's too bad. "More insane" sounds like oodles of fun, doesn't it?
"It was gonna be actually more insane in a way. It's still kinda believable but the pulpiness and the craziness of it was through the roof."
Chmielarz compared the now-defunct sequel to Rick Remender's comic books, specifically the "Fear Agent" series. Unfortunately, not long after former Epic Games president Mike Capps confirmed that Bulletstorm 2 was in development, it was announced that Epic moved People Can Fly to work on another project. That turned out to be Gears of War: Judgment, by the way. Sales for Bulletstorm were described as "good, but not amazing," as publisher EA had hoped it would do better. Therefore, Chmielarz admitted that pursuing a follow-up effort would've been a risk.
Still, we kinda wish it had happened. It was a nice little break from the all-too-serious military settings of the major FPSs today.
