But anything new with the words 'Freedom Fighters' is nowhere in sight....
Why? Why did it work out this way? Was it as simple as "this didn't make enough money"? This is the insider email I want to hear on the bombcast.
Listen I'm not sitting here saying that Freedom Fighters is the greatest thing ever made, and I'm not saying Kane and Lynch was a giant turd, but it's obvious one game was much better received than the other. There are people out there who have a real fondness for Freedom Fighters. Just how many people were genuinely looking forward to a follow-up to Dead Men?
I'm not in charge at IO and I understand they are probably busy working on fixing Hitman but there was a whole generation of games where third person shooters went through numerous refinements, where multiple games dealt with America being invaded by foreign powers, where Jesper Kyd was killing it with his soundtrack work....and instead all IO did was release a weird ass sequel with pixelated dongs.
It boggles my mind that this is how things worked out. Again I'm not saying that they fucked up by going this route, because hey....Freedom Fighters 2 could have been complete dog shit, but it's just really weird.
