Will there ever be an Omikron sequel?
Fans of the original game may remember that a sequel WAS originally being developed by Quantic Dream due to high fan interest (series creator David Cage claimed they got dozens of e-mails a week asking for a sequel) and good enough commercial success.
However the sequel, entitled Nomad Soul: Exodus, eventually fizzled when tensions rose between Quantic Dream and publisher Eidos Interactive. Thus the game was on the verge of being cancelled. Quantic Dream then left Eidos for the hands of Vivendi, followed by Atari. This is where they developed their Farenheit project, a separate game from Omikron, released in the United States as Indigo Prophecy.
Exodus was said to take place hundreds of years after the events of the first game and was still in development back in April of 2006, where they announced that the game’s name had been changed from Exocus to Karma.
Is the game still in development? Right now Quantic Dream has all their focus on the highly anticipated PlayStation 3-exclusive Heavy Rain, but it’s deffinitely possible that they could revisit the franchise after its 2010 release.
Here’s a trailer for the original game.
