The first Brutal Legend has received a discreet welcome from the public and critics, who, however, was not followed by a worthy commercial success, a factor that led the publisher Electronic Arts to abandon the series. But what are the plans for the future?
During an AMA session at E3 2019, Tim Schafer of Double Fine Productions (a company now acquired by Microsoft and therefore part of Xbox Game Studios) said that Brutal Legend 2 is not under development but that in the future a sequel cannot be excluded a priori:
” The Brutal Legend universe is incredibly fun and I would like to go back to explore it. In Double Fine, we have already created several sequels and now I honestly would like to work on something new, but never say never. “
In the past, Schafer admits, there have been attempts to start the production of a sequel to Brutal Legend but then the project has faded and today Brutal Legend 2 still seems rather uncertain.
