There’s an interesting interview with Rebellion over on CVG (Part 1 & Part 2). They mention that they would definitely like to re-visit the AvP series reveal they are working on DLC for the game. Here’s the main bits:
Is AvP something you’d consider delving back into in the future?
Very much so – both in terms of DLC and a further sequel. We’ve got a lot of ideas that even with the budget and time we had, we’d still like to do more of or revisit.
Much of that will come down to Fox or Sega, but it’s looking like it’s going to be a massive success, which is fantastic – pre-orders are very high, as is excitement online. We’ve got our Australian release, which is interesting [laughs], but so far everything is looking good for the first half of this year.
Are you working on DLC already?
Yeah, absolutely. We’re in the phase where we enter submissions. The teams are having a break and coming up with ideas – and we’ve had a lot of thoughts of what we’d like to do for DLC. We’re discussing things with Sega at the moment. The amount of DLC will depend on Sega’s commercial requirement, but we’d definitely love to do a lot.
And in terms of another AvP game?
Definitely. We’ve learnt a lot doing this game and we can really build on this and go further than what we’ve done so far. You always have to draw the line at some stage and polish what you have, get the frame rate up and get the gameplay working brilliantly. But there are a lot of ideas we came up with that we just couldn’t fit in. There are a lot of unanswered questions in the Aliens and Predator canon we’d love to play with.
Thanks to Ikarop for the news.
