In an interview with D+PAD Magazine, Criterion Games has quashed rumours that Black 2 is in development.
Good the first Black game sucked a$$. The commercials were good, but failed to deliver on the intense action, of making it seem you could destroy the envoirment aswell, but you could not.
The first Black failed as far as a immersive story but, it delivered where it counts....Gameplay. It looked and played great thats what matters. Its was a blast to play.
It was an ok, FPS. I bought it based on the commercial i've seen for it. (see 1st post) That commercial was saying "hey, look what physics this game has, then you play it, and what's this... I can't destroy everything." That's just my opinion, they could of atleast put a 'run' option.
No way man! Black is a legend. Black is my no 1 FPS on all last gen consoles. That game was amazing..Alo Its the game that led me to believe gamespot is junk since they gave it a 7/10 score.. IGN score was 8.9. Too bad they are not working on a sequel..
i liked black too, it was a fun mindless shooter that belongs in this next-gen with some crazed-up HD visuals
I loved the first one. Too bad.
This article is racist! :P
LOL good juan alcohog
another? when was the first one?
Are you serious? Black was a great game. This news is too bad. I'd love to see Black 2 on the PS3. Black was about guns and shooting everything up. With the power of the PS3 and real physics it would be a really fun game.
Given its a last gen title, Its graphics are truly near next gen. Also the gameplay is fantastic. I love that game. I wish they make a sequel.
Maybe Criterion will make Black 2 one day. What I got from this interview really is they aren't working on Black 2 and have no plans to. But it doesn't say they won't make it. I'm sure it would sell great.
sad..:[ i loved he first black. mind blowing visuals and one of the best gameplay.but if it only had a good story and multiplayer.ah its sad:(
you guys are acting like they stated they wont make another one altogether. they could still make one but not right now.
and famous fake clown known as Surfer Girl said they are working on black 2 and that it is coming out this year.
Why not!?!? Id rather have another Black than Burnout :(
agreed. something tells me black 2 is coming (hope!), despite this; and EA being their publisher means it can never be ruled out
i m sad only because i have already waited enough for the sequal:[ and now i know black 2 wont be happening anytime soon..(or probably never?):|:( ..like i started thinking they might use the burnout paradise engine to get those awesome explosion/pariticle effects in black 2.. but well nevermind:[ i agree to MightyDouche[:d]
NOOO. While Black 1 wasn't a masterpiece, it was a really fun and engaging FPS game and certainly one of the better games of it's kind. Black 2 with next-gen graphics and multiplayer would have been uber awesome.
Lets get going Criterion... The first was awesome, and a next gen. sequel is at the top of my list. But it can wait until 2009, there are to many FPS coming out this year anyway.
I loved the first BLACK. It delivered for me in terms of action and crazy graphics for the generation of platform it came out for. I can only imagine what the next one would be like if they used the same game engine used in Burnout Paradise in the next BLACK. Well, I guess I will have to suffer with great games like MGS4, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, and... Wait... No, I guess I won't be suffering. It is still a shame to hear the news though.
Man, why in the hell not? Black 2 would be so much better than a new Burnout tbh.
will come out, you don't develop intellectual property and let it collect dust. They just aren't working on it at the moment.
I LOVED Black! There was nothing quite as satisfying as getting a headshot..."Tink". I still play that every once in a while today. Oh, and @ #1 - you're full of it.
Hopefully they reconsider. Black could be great on Next Gen consoles.
Time to start a petition?
I still play it to this day. I'll be sorely disappointed if they don't make a sequel, especially considering the cliffhanger ending of the first one...
why wouldnt u make another? cmon
Oh [email protected]!! i was really hoping for a sequel
such a fun game to play with the over the top explosions and guns and sound it was awesome
Unless they got a small team working on Black 2, they could release it in 2009 as Killzone 2, Resistance 2 are releasing this year, Halo 3 was released last year so Black 2 would not get a big sales. What else do they work expect for Burnout ?
I really liked the first game, yes the story section did fall short, but the gameplay and graphics were really good. It sucks they are not making a new game for this generation.
They could have definitely made a better version on the new generation of consoles.
Black 2 will still come just not in 2008. Most rumors eventually pull the truth out as well. Its only a matter of time.
that's a shame.
I'd love to see Black 2.
yay, more burnout
