Over the weekend, it was discovered that artist Amar Djouad, who worked for Housemarque between 2010 and 2012, posted some very interesting Dead Nation 2, Superman, and The Walking Dead concept art onto his website and CGHUB. Though there’s no writing on his site, he does post on CGHUB that, for Dead Nation 2, “this is how I see the continuation of the game, unfortunately it is just another canceled project…”
Today, Housemarque issued this statement regarding the art:
Housemarque would like to clarify the situation regarding recent rumors: Amar Djouad doesn’t currently hold any position within the company.
As for the artworks on display, they belong to a discarded batch and are not representative of projects we might or might not be working on.
We are flattered by the interest surrounding our future releases, and would like to reassure our fans that official announcements will be made when the time is right.
Since Housemarque is currently working on “a few new projects,” it’s quite possible that Dead Nation 2 may be in development, with a Superman and The Walking Dead game less likely, but we’ll have to wait until we hear official word from them.
