Enslaved Won’t Be Getting a Sequel. Maybe That’s A Good Thing?

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West was one of the unexpected surprises of 2010—a wonderfully colorful, well-told story full of enjoyable Uncharted-esque gameplay and some some remarkably well-done digital performances. Its story wasn't perfect, but those opening chapters (and that finale!) stick with me even today, as do its two mismatched protagonists.

The story is too old to be commented.

Shrek got it from Babe.

Well now theyre ruining DMC...Id take an Enslaved 2 over that.

I'd rather have them "ruining" DMC instead of...let's say...Slant Six Games.
Because let's face it, CAPCOM was the one willing to reboot the series. They could have asked any studios to do it.
At least Ninja Theory has talent, but their games have flaws. We can only hope they've learnt from their mistakes.

Then Enslaved 2 could be their next project.

About the article, I do agree about the fact that Enslaved stands on its own, but Ninja Theory could have expended on the story quite easily. We can't say that a sequel wouldn't give us anything new or wouldn't have a coherent plot if we don't know anything about the developers' ideas.
Heavenly Sword also stands on its own (and has a real ending, without any indications of a possible sequel!), yet Tameem Antoniades said he would have made Nariko's journey go on in Hell. And people wouldn't say no to a Heavenly Sword sequel.

Therefore, Enslaved not getting a sequel isn't a good thing as it can still be seen as an unfinished project. However, Enslaved getting a sequel in a few years could be great if NT acquires more knowledge about game mechanics thanks to DmC. After all, it's the only thing they haven't done right. Well, that and screen tearing :/

As regards their previous project, here is hoping that Sony Santa Monica is working on a Heavenly Sword sequel that has a more open world to it.

Ninja Theory don't have a clue.....

OmegaSlayer2614d ago

I just hope they close down for good.
The only cool guy in Ninja Theory is Alessandro Taini

Seriously.... How many articles do we need about this? I and plenty of people appreciate Enslaved. A lot of people DON'T like it. They aren't making a sequel. That's the end of story you would think. I've counted at least four articles with basically the same content.

Why does every game need a sequel thou?

ReservoirDog3162614d ago

Well, the world and characters were interesting. The problems with 1 would've got ironed out. It probably could've expanded further after the end.

A sequel would've been pretty good.

But we'll never know I guess.

Imagine if Assassin's Creed never got a sequel....

kma2k2614d ago

i persoanally liked the game, but really the story was over. Sequel wasnt/isnt needed.

ReservoirDog3162614d ago

True. Was a pretty final* ending I suppose.

Hope Andy Serkis keeps making games though. He just seems to get overlooked in every game he comes out in and he basically knocks it out of the park everytime.

Quagmire2614d ago

Hope he has a role in DmC. And he really desevres the same amount of attention Nolan North gets, coz I mean c'mon, he's the MASTER of motion capture!
