A boot to the face

A sequel to last year’s adventurous first-person shooter Bulletstorm was in the works at one point, Epic Games’ Mike Capps has announced. Sadly, the follow-up was canned when the company found a project that was considered to be a “better fit” for original developer People Can Fly. What could possibly be better than kicking alien foes headfirst into an overgrown thorn bush?

Speaking after a PAX East panel this weekend, Capps attempted to explain:

We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly. We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon.

But Capps was keen to note that a sequel could emerge later down the line:

I'd love to go back [to Bulletstorm]. I think there's more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I'd love to see another project, but right now we don't have anything to talk about.

Excuse us while we go ahead and scream expletives into our bathroom mirror. What? We need to find a way to cover up the curse-heavy void a Bulletstorm sequel would have otherwise fulfilled.
