Hunted Will See Sequel if Sales Allow

Hunted Will See Sequel if Sales Allow

Although Bethesda’s much anticipated fantasy action title Hunted: The Demon’s Forge has yet to hit store shelves, developer inXile assures us that the game will turn into a series if it sees enough commercial success. Matt Finley, founder of inXile, explains this line of reasoning:

“It really comes down to the simple fact that does Hunted sell well enough to warrant more of them? If Hunted is very very successful I think you’re going to see more of them. If you see more of them then anything is possible: doing one fast and furious with the tech that we have or switching to id Tech 5 – we’re open to anything.

The business has just become that way. It’s not a negative, it’s just a fact of life and a reality. You look at what happens with television shows and they’re getting cancelled after one episode. It’s expensive!”

It’s pretty much common knowledge that a game that sells exceptionally well will in fact get at least a second game. Sadly, the reality is just as harsh for games that don’t sell so well, even those that find great success from a critical standpoint.

With a name like Bethesda on the box, I think Hunted has little to worry about in terms of sales success. Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is set to release June 1st for HD consoles and the PC. Hit the source for info on the game’s “Crucible” community feature.

    No sequel then considering it did not sell well nor was it critically acclaimed.  Matt Finley was getting ahead of himself

    that would be a shame. reviews by critics and regular gamers should be taken with tons of salt, never make a decision based on other people’s thoughts, because more often than not they’re far too stupid to be allowed to review anything.
    try the game for yourself and then make up your mind. personally I was mesmerized by the world beauty and had tons of fun playing it to the end. the length is also extremely pleasing. just when you think you’ve FINALLY gotten to the last couple chapters, there’s still way more to go.

    loved it, and I’d love to see a sequel.
