It looks like Epic games and Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly were really counting on sales from the PC port of Bulletstorm to fund Bulletstorm 2. Well, that didn’t quite pan out. Gamestop is reporting the game has been shelved at least for right now because Epic has another project for People Can Fly which will be announced at a later date. The PC port however didn’t do well, and they are blaming ta decent amount of that on online piracy, though the port wasn’t done very well. I thought Bulletstorm was an awesome game and personally I would love to see a sequel. I think the main campaign needs some co-op however. Maybe a better multiplayer mode. More past the break.
“I’d love to go back [to Bulletstorm],” he added. “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.”
“I think Bulletstorm was very critically successful, and I think a lot of folks really enjoyed seeing something new,” he said. “From a sales perspective it was good, but not amazing. I think EA was hoping we’d do better.”
“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.”
