Epic Games: Plans for Bulletstorm sequel shelved

Bulletstorm, the entertaining over-the-top sci-fi first person shooter, was released in February 2011. While the Unreal Engine 3-based game, from co-developers Epic Games and People Can Fly, received mostly solid reviews, Bulletstorm was not a sales hit. Now GameSpot reports that Epic Games admits a planned, but unannounced, sequel to Bulletstorm, has been shelved.

Epic Games' president Mike Capps admits:

We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly. We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon.

Capps added that he personally would like to see some kind of Bulletstorm follow-up but so far there are no plans to return to the franchise. The game was released via publisher Electronic Arts for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 and had a "Skillshot" system that rewarded players with extra points, power-ups and new weapons depending on how "cool" their kills were.

A couple of days ago, Capps admitted that Epic Games was working on a unannounced game that would be a PC exclusive title but declined to give any more details.
