February 8, 2010 Written by Dan Massi

It looks as though we won’t have to wait any longer to hear what the next PixelJunk title will be. The next title has been surprisingly revealed as the first direct sequel to any PixelJunk title.

The head of Q Games, developer of the PixelJunk series, Dylan Cuthbert, has announced that PixelJunk Shooter 2 is indeed in development.

“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. It would be a waste not to use it to try out more stuff.”

“We managed to put in all the ship ‘suits’ that we thought up this time around but there will be a number of new suits to make use of some of the brand new ideas for fluid gimmicks you may or may not see sometime soon.”

It was also confirmed that another title is in development alongside PixelJunk Shooter 2, however, that title has not yet been revealed. You can check out our review of PixelJunk Shooter here.
