The sequel to Lords of the Fallen appears to be Cancelled after an underperformance of agreement.
Looks like it will be a little more difficult for Deck 13 to attract Hideo Kojima now, huh?
Still the better game on the company's atrocious record...
AAA games are going into extinction because you gamers refuse to support them.
Maybe they need to go into extinction as we know them. Fact is studios spend millions and millions on building a game that a group of indies can make at 10% of the budget. Sudios these days/publishers just dip into the creative process and thats why all the AAA games we get are copies of copies of copies.
@mikeslemonade I still highly support AAA because I HATE INDIE TITLES 95% OF THE TIME.
@Mikeslemonade, Lords of the Fallen isn't even a AAA game it's actually a mid-tier game in terms of quality. People like to think that the mid-tier has disappeared when in fact Lords of the Fallen is actually a mid-tier game. There is nothing "Great" about LotF it's just okay.
@mikeslemonade I would hardly call Lords of the Fallen a AAA game. They spent AAA money but the result was not a AAA game. When I played the game I couldn't even progress a certain point because the game had a game breaking spawning bug. It was (like many supposed AAA games this generation) under tested.
I don't think the sequel is cancelled. The writer of the article does not seemed to have read the entire statement. Here I have screencapped the whole statement and highlighted the important bit. http://i.imgur.com/FahEUuL.... It's through Google Translate, but what this sounds like to me is that the publisher is just letting go of the developer and the game. So in other words Lords 2 will still come, they just need to find a new publisher. I could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like to me.
Lords was one of the best games of 2014. This is disappointing news if true.
they were ambitious with LoF as it has solid mechanics and graphics but the whateverness of their game's art direction and scenario it killed it....you can say it resemble Souls games but the Japanese are solid and coherent as Rock in their game designs and art..thing that many westerners lack and usually fail
Should not have released in October. New ip with little marketing budget sas always going to underwhelm especially when it doesn't set critics raving
Sad to hear this. If they had a chance to fix the stuff gamers griped about a second Lotf could've been better. I was one of the few that liked the game.

Many, including me, enjoyed the game. Also I find the Dev very cool and thats a real shame if theres no sequel
I thought the graphics were better than Bloodborne on this. Gameplay wasn't as fun though.
I thought the gameplay was way better than bloodborne's. In bloodborne all you do is dodge over and over and hit once or twice. Enemies (especially bosses) are there just to soak damage making fights longer than they should be.
Boss fights on Dark souls 1 & 2 are longer than Bloodbornes...
@WellyUK I looked over my post several times, I didn't mention Dark Souls 1 or 2. So ... don't care that they were longer.
The price of this game plummeted at record speed, it should not have been released at that time as it just got killed by all the other competing games.
@mike, This game went into extinction because it was a Souls clone for scrubs and the majority would rather play the real deal than a cheap knock off.
You are really wrong. The majority were excited for the VERY first game to try to imitate the Souls formula. People knew exactly what it was trying to do, and they were excited for that not laughing at it. Just read the previews and people commenting about it for all the proof you need. And the result is actually a decent game that can vastly improve with a sequel.
It's not cancelled.
I hope this isn't true it was a great game and nice filler between Souls games. Thought the world was well developed and the Boss fights were cool. I was disppointed that a sequal to Kingdoms of Amalur would never happen, so hope this one isn't dead as well. Gamers don't back these well made new ip's and then wonder why we get fewer and fewer.
This game had a chance to be more popular but this happens when you include a nasty DRM, think that piratery isn't always bad it's free publicity, many people want to try the game first and then decide buying.
As a Souls series fan, LoF was a poor clone of those games so this comes as no shock to me.
The game is not cancelled guys, the document on CI games site states that the old contract is terminated while they continue to work on the sequel and the mobile version of the game. There will certainly be more lords to defeat so for now let's go back to being hunters in Bloodborne :D
Does not look the same as Souls, never got around to playing it but I'm sad new IP's can't survive.
Technical it was crap,bad framerate plenty of bugs,gameplay was average a solid 6/10.
