No Enslaved Sequel Planned but Ninja Theory Studio Head 'Would Like to See Something Happen'

By Xav de Matos, Oct 05, 2010 11:20am PDT Considering its unfortunate history with planning too far ahead, it's no surprise developer Ninja Theory decided against immediately penning a continuation to the story found in its latest title Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, but that doesn't mean a sequel isn't possible.

"The thinking from the beginning was not to assume there would be a sequel--just to put everything into this game. It's a new IP, so let's not plan for a sequel because the chances are we'll only disappoint ourselves," Ninja Theory studio head Tameem Antoniades told Eurogamer. "So we mentally prepared for that--we've not planned for a sequel. But if it gains some traction, I'd like to see something happen."

Although initial reviews for the game are positive, Enslaved--which launched today--faces off against stiff competition at retail, including known quantities Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, NBA Jam and NBA 2K11.

Ninja Theory has already revealed it is the new team behind the Devil May Cry franchise reboot; however, Antoniades says his studio has the "capacity" to develop more than one game at a time.
