Bizarre reluctant to return to Geometry Wars

Bad news for anyone still hoping for more Geometry Wars. Bizarre Creations is well aware of the public demand, but they'd rather leave the franchise alone.

"It's just a great thing having titles that people love, that they associate with our studio - and Geometry Wars is one of them," said level designer Peter Collier. "It's very close to a lot of fans' hearts. I guess it's just one of those things, that it's a great and very proud feeling having something that the fans adore so much, but we don't want to over-saturate it by carrying on with it. It's may be something that we keep as something we love, and move on to other things, you know?"

Is this any good? I heard this game being compared to SuperStarDust HD, but I love SSHD to death and its 1080p/60fps on endless mode.

GW came first. SSSD is the PS3 equivalent of GW, it isn't a clone, but they have the same feeling of addictiveness and as platform exclusive twin stick shooters.

I'd suggest to try Geometry Wars 2. You really need not bother with the first, Galaxies for Wii and DS is pretty neat too, but shows the franchise can be made without Bizarre.

i like it because you can get the ds version of the original via dlc from the wii to the ds. Nice game to play on the go.

There is no logical reason to ignore one of your biggest games and franchises so what gives???...Hmmmm...I smell a conspiracy and it might have something to do with the fact that their last games were made exclusively for M$. If M$ published Geometry wars then maybe there is something in writing preventing them from making it...who knows. What I do know is...

They were bought by Activision ( '07 ) and that was sad. They should of been making Project Gothic Racing 5 ( 360 exclusive ) and instead made Blur, a game that had good reviews but nobody bought. They also made a game that I liked called the Club, again it never really sold well despite being a solid game. A really talented bunch over there and I hope James Bond: Blood Stone plays and sells as well as it looks.

You'd think Activision, upon reading this, would fly in a 300 lb. no-neck sort of guy the next day, and he'd tap on the office door of whoever is in charge at Bizarre with a baseball bat, and he'd say, "Hey! Your uncle Bobby just read something very sad and misguided on the watcha-ma-call-it? Oh yeah, the internet, and it made him worry. It made him worry real bad. So now he wants to know how the new Geometry Wars game is going. By by next Friday. Capisce? "

Actually. I'd quite like it if Activision did do that in this case, for once.
