A follow up to October’s surprise indie hit Hotline Miami is already in pre-production.

Creator Jonatan “Cactus” Söderström confirmed the sequel on Twitter.

“Working while listening to the sweet tunes of a preliminary Hotline Miami 2 soundtrack that we’ve put together during the weekend,” he said.

Twitter users leapt on the comment immediately, leading to a brief Q&A regarding the soundtrack for the second game, as the first game’s music was extremely well received. Söderström said he’s not sure about the second game’s soundtrack yet.

“Last time we had nine different musicians doing the soundtrack. Looks like a couple of them might do more tracks for the sequel, but we’ve been looking at some other bands as well. Want to keep it fresh,” he said.

Hotline Miami is a 1980’s-styled, top-down murder sim which hit Steam last month and quickly became a critical and commercial favourite.
