AvP 2 or that is, the fourth main Aliens vs Predator game, is something that developer Rebellion is in talks with Sega about. Which is certainly no susprise after the game did quite well for itself, shooting to the top of the UK charts; the developer’s home country.
“We’re delighted to see the game shoot to the top of the UK charts,” said company co-founder and CEO Jason Kingsley, speaking from Paris. “We wanted Aliens Versus Predator to be a critical success as well as a commercial success, which we think we have achieved. We’re also in discussions with Sega about ongoing support for AvP, and also about a sequel to the game.”
“I won’t say what stage those negotiations are in, but we would love to revisit the franchise. Fox are excited about what we’re doing, and we feel we’ve added value to the franchise. We would love to work with Sega again, there were a lot of things we couldn’t fit into the original. We are trying to do all the right things to make the franchise a success now and in the future.”
Aliens vs Predator has quickly become the fastest-sellilng new release of 2010 in the UK, even outselling Mass Effect 2 in that country.
So things are looking up that we’ll see another AvP title sooner rather than later. Good news, as the franchise is such a ripe one for videogames.
