Condemned Dev Express Desire for the Series to Continue
Remember Condemned? The spooky first-person shooter/explorative action game that made you jump at every little thing (maybe just me, then)?
Jace Hall, the founder and CEO of Monolith Productions has gone to Facebook to state that he wants the franchise to continue, cites that he owns the IP, and asked the fans for feedback.
Here’s his entire Facebook message:
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?
Given that the last game in the series was released way back in 2008, I’d say the time is ripe, no? In case you’re not familiar with the game, I’ve embedded a quick trailer as a reminder (via PlayScope)
Would you want another entry in the Condemned franchise? Who would you want to develop it if Monolith can’t?
