Rumor: Prototype 2 In The Works?
Critics and gamers were often at odds concerning this year's Prototype, which some absolutely adored while others found it to be a letdown in comparison to Sucker Punch's stellar inFamous.
But if you're in the former camp and you'd very much appreciate a sequel, you'll be happy to know that Radical Entertainment just might be working on Prototype 2 even as we speak. The evidence comes from designer Malcolm Wilson's LinkedIn page, where it states he's working on a currently "unannounced project" for Radical. The interesting part about this is that he started on the game the month after completing his work on Prototype - completed January 2009, new project started February 2009 - so that may be a good indication as to the identity of this mystery title. On the other hand, it's easy to just say, "well, duh, he finished one game and started working on another immediately after the first one was done. That's what work is." But those who have completed Prototype know the ending leaves plenty of room for a sequel, and considering the solid performance of the game on the sales charts, Radical could very well be pursuing a follow-up adventure for Alex Mercer. So would you like to see Prototype 2 or would you rather they focus their efforts elsewhere?
For our part, we still say inFamous was easily the better game, but we know of many people who enjoyed both. Playing as superhuman dudes typically has a positive effect.
