Bizarre Has Enough Ideas for 10 Geometry Wars Games
It took years to get a true sequel to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved on Xbox Live Arcade — although we did get Waves in PGR4 and Galaxies on Wii and DS while we waited. Going forward, a shortage of ideas is certainly not among Bizarre Creations’ problems in creating future Geometry Wars titles, as programmer Stephen Cakebread told MTV Multiplayer, “We have enough game ideas to do Geometry Wars for probably about 10 games. It depends on what will work.”
Bizarre games manager Craig Howard further confirmed the inevitable Geometry Wars sequels. “Geometry Wars is definitely a franchise,” Howard said. “It’s not going to stop.” With the way Bizarre parent company Activision has handled Guitar Hero recently, it’s not difficult to imagine.
As a big fan of Geometry Wars, it’s great to hear that Bizarre fully intends to move forward with the series. But I certainly can’t be the only one that is worried I might end up with a serious case of Geometry Wars fatigue (also known as Tony Hawk syndrome). Bizarre seemed in no rush to release Geometry Wars 2, but with Activision now calling the shots, should gamers be worried?
