Disappointing sales kill the prospect of an Enslaved sequel
Ninja Theory has confirmed that there will be no sequel to their superbly charming adventure Ensalved: Odyssey to the West.
Enslaved was possibily the most refreshing and entertaining new IPs of last year but despite critical acclaim it only sold around 700,000 copies.
The disappointed developer has turned their creative juices to their reboot of the Devil May Cry series hoping that they can see more success with their interpretation of Dante's elegant universe.
Tameem Antonaides, co-founder at Ninja Theory said of Enslave: "Enslaved should have done better. Right now we should have been doing a sequel and perfecting that sequel and doing what franchises do, which is get better over time. [But] because that didn't happen we've not expanded to two teams like we intended to. So we've remained a smaller shop. But now we get another chance with DMC."
On the basis of Enslaved, DMC should be a great game and hopefully it will finally land Ninja Theory the success they deserve when it arrives next year.
