Red Steel 3 will happen “if we have an audience”, says director

Wednesday, 19th May 2010 10:08 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Red Steel 2 director Jason Vandenberghe has said a sequel will happen for the series, but only if it will “have an audience”.

Speaking with ONM during development of RS2, Vandenberghe said: “Hopefully we’ll roll into the next project and start building something even cooler than what we’ve accomplished with this game, but first we need to understand if we even have an audience.

“How many people want to play a game where you stand up and swing your arm vigourously? We think the answer is ‘a lot,” he adds. ” But some cold, hard facts never hurt the situation when pitching the next project.”

His comments come as Ubisoft’s financials last night confirmed that Red Steel 2 was performing in line with the firm’s expectations. Maybe Red Steel 3 is coming after all.

Maybe not as soon as this, mind.

The game was released in late March for Wii.

    They should probably switch the series over to PS3 now and do it with Move instead.

    Or at least, no reason not to release it on both formats. They’ll probably shoe horn something together for Natal too, although I’m convinced MS will release a 360 pad designed to be used with Natal (two Nunchucks or something like that).

    Well, I’m guessing the fact that nobody bought the second one is probably a pretty decent reason not to release it on both formats. :-)

    I’ve no idea how they’d do it on Natal unless they shipped it with a free stick.

    They could port 2 over to PSN first as a downloadable title when Move ships, and see what the reaction is.

    If it sells, a full on HD PS3 version with Move could be pretty decent.

    @4 Why would they do what when a retail release would likely sell much more? The game is hardly the right size for a download anyway.

    If they have any sense, they’re already porting Red Steal 2 over to the PS3 anyway. I’d buy that in an instant.
