It looks like there’s a good chance SuperBot – creators of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – are working on a sequel. This isn’t exactly irregular in the industry, but sales of Battle Royale have been poor (and are only getting poorer) and nobody really expected Sony to greenlight another so quickly.
The first is for an Art Director and the second Game Designer, and both point to things that would normally be found in a side-on multi IP brawler. Like, well, another Battle Royale. Case in point – the experience required for the latter role is “a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale” and “knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics.”
Hopefully a sequel – if this is what this is – will expand the roster and bring in some of the tweaks players have asked for, although quite why this couldn’t be DLC (like the forthcoming Kat and Emmett pack) is anyone’s guess.
Unless it’s for PS4, of course.
