We’ve got to admit, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s seemingly poor sales had us worried for a moment. Developer SuperBot Entertainment has crafted such an excellent starting point, that it would be a real shame if the idea didn’t get fleshed out further in a sequel – but it looks like that’s exactly what’s on the cards.
A couple of job listings – one for an art director, the other for a game designer – suggest that Sony is in the early stages of putting together a sequel. The advertisement for the latter role notes that potential candidates should have “a near encyclopaedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale”. It adds that “knowledge of fighting games, their systems, and mechanics [is also] a serious plus”.
Meanwhile, the art director position gets even more specific: “A project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished product.”
We suppose it’s possible that Sony could be recruiting for DLC production, but it seems more likely that a sequel is on the way to us. We guess that means it’s time to kick-start the old roster discussion again: which characters would you like to see added to the follow-up?
