Namco wants to "keep pushing" Enslaved

But still "no plans" for a sequel.

Namco Bandai wants to "keep pushing" high-budget adventure franchise Enslaved, despite there being no sequel currently in the works.

"We're very much behind it," Namco Bandai's UK marketing manager Lee Kirton stated, speaking to Eurogamer during this week's Podcast.

"We've got plans as to where we want to take Enslaved, we want to keep on pushing... maybe to a market that hasn't experienced it yet."

Could a release on other platforms drum up more support for the game? A port to PC or iOS, perhaps? Or maybe an updated and discounted version available to consoles via download?

Kirton was however firm - no sequel is in development. "We currently have no plans for an Enslaved sequel. However, we are still looking at it," he said.

Despite having all the right ingredients, Namco has suggested Enslaved: Journey to the West's release during the frenzied October period last year was poorly timed.

"It's disappointing since it could have and should have done more," Kirton concluded.

Enslaved sales initially failed to break the 500k barrier, although more recent figures revealed a healthier 700,000 total.
