While Alien: Isolation may not have been a sales juggernaut (it finished 2nd in the UK during its launch week and finished outside the top 10 for October in the US), it did receive favorable reviews, and developer Creative Assembly is having discussions about a potential sequel.
In an interview with AVP Galaxy, Lead Game Designer Gary Napper revealed that there is an opportunity to continue Amanda’s story:
The plot for a sequel is a daily topic in the studio sometimes. People have their own ideas for where it should go, our writers have some solid concepts and yes, we do have a great opportunity to continue her story.
As for the direction an Isolation sequel might take, Napper said, “I think the action-oriented Aliens style game is very different from what Isolation is. If we made a sequel I would like to stick to the same terrifying single Alien approach, but do more with the environment and interactivity within it.”
If you haven’t downloaded the most recent update for Alien: Isolation, it adds the Nightmare and Novice difficulty modes.
