At E3 2019, People Can Fly finally announced its new title, Outriders. It’s a cooperative shooter for three players in the making with Square Enix helming at the publishing side of things, and it’s releasing in early 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
While being focused on this new intellectual property, the Polish developer is not forgetting Bulletstorm at all. It’s the game that gave them the ultimate popularity when they still were under the Epic Games umbrella, and an IP they own, so there’s always more to come from it in the future, it seems.
“We are, as you can see [with the remaster and the Switch version], still holding this IP deep in our hearts,” Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO of developer People Can Fly, said in a recent interview with the website Eurogamer.
“We want this IP to have its second life,” he added. “We’re still not sure what that means but obviously since this is our IP – we own the IP – and the IP is known and has its fans, we would like to do something about it.”
It’s hard to say when this is happening, especially if you consider that Outriders could be ultimately going deep into the games as a service territory, which could mean it might have a very long lifecycle with post-release content support and more.
Anyway, hearing that PiP still cares about the IP gives us some hope that, one day, we could see Bulletstorm 2 happen. That would be a next-gen affair at the very least, but for something like that, we could patiently wait for things to line up.
