2011's Bulletstorm is a bit of a cult favorite. The over-the-top FPS created by People Can Fly and published by Electronic Arts didn't achieve the sales either party wanted, but the game was well-received by critics and players. Surprisingly, a sequel, which most people understandably thought was never going to happen, might actually be on the way.
Although People Can Fly is currently hard at work making Outriders, a new cooperative shooter IP from Square Enix due for release in 2020, Bulletstorm 2 might be on the cards in the future.
"We are, as you can see [with the remaster and the Switch version], still holding this IP deep in our hearts," Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO of developer People Can Fly, told Eurogamer. "We want this IP to have its second life. We're still not sure what that means but obviously since this is our IP - we own the IP - and the IP is known and has its fans, we would like to do something about it."
That sounds pretty promising, no? Wojciechowski went on to stress that the studio would need to figure out how to make Bulletstorm 2 reach a bigger audience than the original, and that the game coming back at all is still very much an "if" rather than guaranteed.
If you're eager to go back to Bulletstorm or want to experience its fun combat for the first time, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with 4K support on PC, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X. A Nintendo Switch port is due to arrive this summer.
