Condemned developer wants the series to continue
Condemned: Criminal Origins did a superb job of keeping players on edge. Its scares really paid off, making it one of the early gems on the Xbox 360 for horror fans. Sadly, after a sequel, the series has been dormant. But that’s possibly going to change.
The game’s developer, founder and CEO of Monolith Productions, Jace Hall, has taken to Facebook to express his interest in continuing the series, asking if fans would like to see it come to fruition. Here’s his FB post:
“Deep thought..and question…
I helped to create a video game console franchise called “Condemned.” I currently own the entire franchise.
There have been 2 game titles released for the franchise, “Condemned: Criminal Origins” and “Condemned: Bloodshot” – they both did well, and I am consistently asked when a third game might be created.
Since I am focused on other things, and will be for quite some time, this franchise is just sitting there.
I am contemplating finding an interested and proven Indie development team AND PROVIDING IT TO THEM, so that they can take over the franchise and move it forward.
As an indie, it can be very hard to get marketing/media attention for a title that you work on. This franchise is already quite known, has market demand, and is in an innovative genre/category.
Should I explore this idea further? What say you all?”
