Q Games boss Dylan Cuthbert has said PixelJunk Shooter 2 will be far more than a "re-hash".
"Normally sequels are just a re-hashing of the ideas in the original, but for PixelJunk Shooter we still have a ton of ideas on the drawing board and the engine has lots of potential we want to use before moving onto our next idea," Cuthbert told G4TV. "It would be a waste not to use it to try out more stuff."
Cuthbert said there will be "a number" of new suits included to make use of some of the "brand new ideas for fluid gimmicks". He didn't mention a release date.
Q Games hasn't historically dwelt on IP, having moved from PixelJunk Racers to PixelJunk Monsters to PixelJunk Eden in swift succession. Check out our PixelJunk Shooter review for an idea of what to expect.
