AvP has risen to the top of the UK charts for all three platforms and has become the fastest selling game of the year in the UK, beating the likes of Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2. Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley recently spoke to Develop-Online regarding that success:
“I won’t say what stage those negotiations are in, but we would love to revisit the franchise. Fox are excited about what we’re doing, and we feel we’ve added value to the franchise. We would love to work with Sega again, there were a lot of things we couldn’t fit into the original. We are trying to do all the right things to make the franchise a success now and in the future.”
I’m not sure how many units it has sold but it certainly looks like Sega and Rebellion have a commercial winner on their hands. Those of you who have played the game will know that it was left open for a sequel. I also hope the success means we’ll be getting additional DLC content.
