Epic shelved Bulletstorm sequel

GS:A Bulletstorm follow-up was in the works before Epic Games moved Polish developer People Can Fly to a new project, president Mike Capps told GameSpot this weekend at PAX East. (Epic Games, Industry)

The game was one big UT/Gears of War rip off anyway..Epic/PCF are the blame though.. instead of being creative they just mashed together what has worked on past titles and expected a hit.

Yeah, no surprise that the sequel didn't see the light of day.

Dickstorm wasn't too good. Played through it once because it was gifted to me on Steam, then swiftly uninstalled it.

I did the same with the copy of Batman Arkham City that I received for free when I purchased a new graphics card.

I did the same with my gifted copy of Batman Arkham City after it ate my save file. Wasn't done playing it, was just too angry to start over.

I had a lot of fun when playing the game, I don't remember anything that happened but I still had fun. From that im guessing it's worth a play through but not very memorable.

Isnt that the case with most of the games these days? They are all rip offs then! At least Bulletstorm brought something original to the table, other than just the same old fps we keep seeing over and over. I would much rather see this game be made than another frikin Gears 4 game, youre just paying $60 for extra dlc!

You people obviously never even played Bulletstorm and are going by the look of the characters. Complete different fps experience, no other game has ever thought of that style of gameplay before. Its too bad closeminded people missed out on a fantastic game. Dont judge a book by its cover.

Why not bring Borderlands and Rage into it while your at it. I am all about post apocalyptic games and we can sit here and say all 3 of those games are rip offs too. Whats the point?

it wasnt a very good game, and I dont think it sold that well either.

I thought it was a great game, pretty creative.. not sure where all the hate is coming from, other than the sloppy PC port.
HammockGames  +   1120d ago
Agreed. I enjoyed it for what it was. Campy humor, over the top gameplay, and the shooting mechanics were solid enough. Personally, I even got a kick out of the story (not mind bending stuff, but interesting imho).

And the ridiculous quotes gave me a chuckle or two. What other game delivers classics like, "You're going to kill our d!cks? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!"

I'd actually recommend this game to most anybody (didn't play the PC version, so I can't speak to the issues there, though).

the demo never really grabbed me so i gave the game a pass. not surprised this didnt get greenlite.

That game was just balls to the wall fun and honestly that's what's missing from our variety of games. The ones that just come out that don't have a story and are just played for the hell of it. I payed $60 for not giving a crap about the gears 3 beta and id say it was $60 well spent. On topic though im sad to gear the second one got shelved.

They shouldn't have shelved it. Bulletstorm is one of those games that you can just laugh about while playing it. Definitely not a lot of those around anymore. I still have it on my PC and play it on a regular basis when I need a break from BF3.

It looked like a poor mans Gears of War made for 13 year olds. Epic should probably face the fact that they are a one hit wonder. If you want to succeed, put Gears on all platforms.
vallencer  +   1120d ago
Are they a one hit wonder? Have you herd of unreal tournament? It has a huge fallowing behind it just to inform you.

I liked what i seen from this game will get it and rage eventually im so behind with games on my to do list may pick up both 2nd hand.

Guys, I have an idea.
Lets make a mediocre console game, then have a crappy PC port for it. Then when it sells poorly on PC lets blame it on piracy.

Dammit. I loved this freaking game.
