Freedom Fighters

Freedom Fighters was a very good game when it released six-and-a-half years ago.

So where’s the sequel, IO?

“No comment,” was all Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days director Karsten Lund was offering to VG247 at an event to show off the studio’s latest project.

“We get that a lot,” Lund further added.

Back in 2003, EA published Freedom Fighters for PS2, Xbox, GameCube and PC. It remains to be the only game made by the developer that wasn’t published by Eidos.

FF saw plumber Christopher Stone lead an American resistance group against an occupying Soviet army in New York. The game was set in a world where the Soviet Union survived WWII after dropping an A- Bomb on Berlin to end the war.

In 2004, Eidos announced the sequel, which was due in the second half of 2005.

Freedom Fighters 2 is, apparently, still on the developer’s to-do list, but IO moved onto Kane & Lynch, and the rest, they say, is history.
