Both have done well enough to warrant sequels.
Remember id Software’s Rage? How about Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within? One of those was the last game to involve John Carmack. The other was Shinji Mikami’s last game. Neither got sequels either. We’re sensing a pattern.
However according to Pete Hines, Bethesda VP of marketing and PR, when speaking to Finder, it’s highly likely that both receive sequels. “I do think both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that we could make sequels.
“I can’t talk about the unannounced stuff and what we may or may not do. I get myself in trouble whenever I do that. If I come out and say, ‘I just don’t think that is going to happen,’ then people freak out. So I won’t confirm or deny stuff we may or may not do, as people jump to the wrong conclusions. Personally I loved Rage and had a tonne of fun playing it, but we have a lot of stuff in the pipeline right now so you will have to wait and see.”
While we don’t know what Tango Gameworks is up to, id Software recently released DOOM and is working on Quake Champions for PC.
