SWERY Implies Deadly Premonition 2 Is A Thing
Did you like Deadly Premonition? If so, you’re in weird company because the game divided people who played it. It wasn’t a monster mega hit or anything, but there might be a sequel, maybe. At least, that’s what creator Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro hinted at Gamescom. Eurogamer caught up with him and asked him about it. He confirmed the whole team is working on something new. What is it? He said:
“We’re in talks with publishers at the moment, and we can’t tell you about the platforms. But by next summer, I think everyone will have a good idea of what it’s going to be. After Deadly Premonition everyone wanted to know when the next project was coming along. I told them it would be in 10 years’ time. So I think they’re still waiting!”
So is this a sequel. All he would say was “Hmm, maybe!” However, he did tell them “I meet once a month with the producer of Deadly Premonition and we talk about various things. There are things I’ve come up with the producer has said no to. I suggested Deadly Premonition 2 should be as though Deadly Premonition 1 had never existed. I wanted to do everything from scratch, but the producer said I couldn’t do that.”
There’s more, and it’s worth a read. If, that is, you’re a fan.
