Obsidian “would make Alpha Protocol 2,” and “do better” with it

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart has said the team would happily make Alpha Protocol 2.

Speaking in the latest issue of Play, Urquhart said the team, if it decided to make a sequel, would do a better job of it as well.

“I think there were things in the game we could have done better,” he said (via NowGamer). “We’ve talked about how the cover system wasn’t the best. Would it have been better with no cover system, so we could focus on other things instead? There were certain things we did really well – the whole story, the characters, the branching.

“Perhaps it was not necessarily the job we did but there was something beyond the game – how it was represented or how it was sold or what people felt we promised them. Something went off-kilter there. So there’s another lesson to learn about communication.

“We’re not making Alpha Protocol 2 but I would make Alpha Protocol 2. To do a job like this, sometimes you have to be optimistic, you have to look to the future and say ‘We can do better.’ And I always believe that.”

Obsidian is currently working on Dungeon Siege III and recently released the Honest Hearts DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.
