No sequel for Alpha Protocol

Sad but true

SEGA has decided that they will not be making a sequel to Alpha Protocol.

SEGA's Mike Hayes told CVG that the game's disappointing sales made the decision inevitable.

Hayes said:"Let's speak very commercially; the game hasn't sold what we've expected, therefore we won't be doing a sequel."

He added that it wasn't a total disappointment:"The concept was brilliant, though.You know this whole thing with Metacritic where you have to be in the high 70s to mid-80s minimum [to have any success] - well, with RPGs you have got to be in the late 80s."

"Whilst we had a good game," Hayes concluded," I don't think we had a game that had enough to get us to that upper echelon and I think that was the issue. Again, the amount you need to invest to get there is so large because RPGs are naturally big projects. We've decided we won't do a sequel."
