Champions Online sequel is possible should the game be a success

Cryptic’s Jack Emmert has said that there is a distinct possibility of a a sequel to Champions Online should the MMO go over well.

It would run in a vein similar to  City of Villains, and possibly be called Nemesis Online.

“Look, if Champions is successful and people want that, heck yea. But, I think that I already have a very different idea in mind for that,” Emmert told G4. “I think in City of Villains, we were asked to make the game in about a year, and so we were kind of focused on “We gotta get this done.” So, we just took the template of City of Heroes and copied it.

“If I were to do it over again, I would create a very different type of gameplay for villain worlds.”
