Wait, Did Housemarque Just Announce a Sequel to Resogun?

Posted by Kell Andersen

Fingers crossed

Do you like mysterious and intriguing tweets that hint at new and exciting games, without ever actually giving any concrete details? No? Neither do we really, but, in the words of the Rolling Stones, you can't always get what you want. Housemarque, the talented team behind Resogun – one of our favourite games of 2013 – is hard at work on a brand new title for the PlayStation 4, and it's taken to Twitter to spruik this latest scheme.

"Imagine Resogun, right?" the studio teased. "Now imagine it so much better that you almost forget how good the original was. That. Is. Coming." Any moral and upstanding citizen would take this as a fairly blatant hint at a sequel to the sharp shooter, but the Helsinki-based indie was quick to quell this quandary. When asked for any hints regarding a potential follow-up, the developer replied by categorically stating: "There's no Resogun 2."

Which leaves the lingering question: what the heck is the studio referring to? Considering its decidedly score-focused output thus far, we're predicting that this might be something in the same vein, but at this point, it's really anyone's guess. Perhaps the developer is talking about that Dead Nation sequel that it's apparently been toying around with. What do you make of this tantalising tease? Would you be interested in a sequel to Resogun? Enter bullet hell in the comments section below.

I think it's probably DLC - some kind of new mode that takes the core principles but takes it to another level. They are working on another PS4 game, though, so could be that.

Yea sounds like chunky dlc.either way you had me at housemarque, resogun still the best ps4 exclusive in my view so cant wait.hopefully whatever it is is soon and not ages away

I was absolutely baffled by all the praise for Resogun...didn't see the reason for hype or any of what everyone seemed to see in it. However as I'm clearly in a vast minority I'm sure plenty of folk are interested in more Resogun in either DLC or sequel form.

Different strokes and all that I suppose. I guess it is one of those niche type games and if you dont really like them resogun probably not gonna change your opinion. It was the main reason I opted for a ps4 at launch thougj I do have an xbone it for titanfall, wish I didnt bother tbh...

I would really love it if Sony added Housemarque to there worldwide studios, they seem to be one of these devs that never seem to make a bad game.

I think for a lot of thirtysomethings Resogun was a throwback to the 10p coin ops n playing Defender again n again n again.

Basically Resogun was Defender with better staging, graphics n progression and as such was a blast for a guy like if Housemarque could get their hands on Green Beret or even Ikari Warriors......

Remember playing green beret (think it was called rush n attack here) on was it hard..or I was rubbish at it.good times indeed.was hoping for another stardust after ps3 n vita versions . definitely prefer that to resogun

Considering that it's the second best game Housemarque have ever made, yes I would. And I say that as someone who is not really a fan of arcade-style shooters. I thought Super Stardust HD was terrible, for example, so I really hesitated to try Resogun after people kept going on and on about how amazing Stardust was. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Resogun is actually really good. I would definitely buy some DLC or a sequel.

And just in case anyone is wondering, Outland is the best game they've ever made.
