Eurogamer today has a post with the news that I’ve dreaded since the release of “Space Marine” – the signs don’t point towards a “Space Marine 2” any time soon.
THQ boss Danny Bilson isn’t ruling it out entirely, but the sales don’t quite justify a sequel in the expansive territory of the “40K” universe – especially when the previously mentioned “WH40K” MMO may apparently share game play elements which overlap with the single-player game.
An MMO which is pick-up-and-play enough to appeal to the single-player fans of “Space Marine”? I can’t help but be intrigued by that as instance-based, always-on MMO traditions really don’t hold any interest for me.
I’ll just have to wait until 2013 to see if this bears fruition or is just so much PR fluff.
