Criterion Games confirms to PSN! that they do not have plans for a sequel of the acclaimed Black. In addition to this, the studio discards further adventures in the FPS genre.
good because its already too many fps titles
but still... :(
Black is a ps2 shooter Thats still impressive to this day, mainly due to the shooting mechanic, it would have been interesting to see what criterion could do with today's current consoles , but FPS genres is kinda over saturated these days
I agree with NYC_Gamer. They better put their efforts in something else.
What, like more driving games or - far better - a Fallout/Oblivion type RPG?
Anything they choose will be fine. They deserve credit for all the good work done in all these years :).
Please, announce the new SSX We know you are working on it, guys!!!
Yeah! I don't want more FPS!
id like to make a braveheart type of game but instead of people fing wuth swords and arrows, id like them to be dinosaurs or maybe birds. just an idea, mix it up ya know?
am i the only one who thought black was awsome. been waiting for a sequel :-(
It was looking pretty lame... The original was great though.
No, you're not alone. I agree with you and I think it was top notch, but it's time to do something else, fresh.
Gay, while I agree there are a lot of FPS. Criterion would have brought fun and something new for the fps genre
I agree and your avatar is awesome. Regina and Dino Crisis need to come back as well.
Wasn't Criterion working on another FPS? When did BodyCount get canceled? http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blo... Just so i dont feel crazy here does someone want to clarify? Lol
Stuart Black was working in Bodycount, but he left Criterion for joining to Codemasters. It's a Codemasters's game. Nothing related to EA or Criterion.
I WANTED BLACK 2 :(
Black was way ahead of it's time. IF they had the game in development, would they tell you about it????...especially when they have a game about to be released...O_o I suspect they may revisit this topic soon after the release and promotion of NFS: Hot pursuit is done. Who remembers Black...I wish they did a HD version of that game and released it with multi-player... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... One of the best FPS shooters ever made. Stuart Black, the creative director behind the game left EA and Criterion and " was " making a game called Bodycount with Codemasters...he's since left that game in October of this year to make yet another game somewhere else...I think...O_o Here's the pre-alpha build of Bodycount from E3...Everything is destructible, will have multi-player. The game releases in first quarter 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Interview with Stuart Black... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
many fps already do what black did. I would say black inspired bc & bc2 destruction wise. Still I'd like to see another black
wtf happened to it?
This was one of the last great FPS games I've played by EA. Just wish they can make more games like this instead of C.O.D. and Rock Band games. After that My PS2 titles are completed.
I really want Black 2, the original Black was the best shooter, and the best looking game on Ps2 Imo.
