'Bulletstorm 2' sidelined for People Can Fly's unannounced next project

Epic Games subsidiary People Can Fly was, at one time, working on a sequel to its over-the-top shooter Bulletstorm, but that project has been put on hold in favor of an unannounced game, Epic's Mike Capps told GameSpot during PAX East.

"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it," Capps explained, "but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly." He added the project in question will be announced "pretty soon." No info about the games has been revealed, though last November, OXM reported rumors that the studio's next game is a Gears of War prequel.

Capps said that despite the game's critical success, less-than-stellar sales left EA a bit disappointed. Still, the decision to move on to a new franchise wasn't due to a lack of in-house love for Bulletstorm.

"I'd love to go back," Capps said. "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."
