Quote from: Darkness on Oct 04, 2015, 08:46:22 PMYou can't build a story like this with half of it as Amanda and half as the alien. The alien can't die for starters. The gameplay mechanics would be completely different. If they'd have included a couple of chapters of it, I'd guarantee reviewers would be bitching that it was out of place. Sure, I guess DLC was possible but you're still talking about changing the whole gameplay. I must admit I was expecting story DLC from a different characters point of view. It was sadly a missed opportunity.
QuoteYou're not completely hounded by the alien all the time. There's plenty of long moments where it doesn't appear at all. They do mix things up with the androids and eventually give you a flamethrower but yeah, I hear ya, it does get overwhelming constantly on the edge of your seat but I don't think the solution is to play as the alien. I didn't think it was a good idea in Colonial Marines either, even it was multiplayer. I just think if you want to play as the creatures, AvP is the way to go. The campaigns are deliberately woven together, all the species are balanced with pros and cons.
QuoteSales for AvP were less than Isolation and there were lots of variety there. Perhaps, I can see it probably would have got a few more interested but I suspect Amanda's story would have suffered because of it and we wouldn't have got the game we got.

Quote from: Space Rick on Oct 04, 2015, 09:31:46 PMIt's a bit weird for me for CA to pass on the possibility of a sequel because they wouldn't have to spend the time this time to create the engine, A.I etc but focus mainly on the content. They could pump it out with much less effort and time, being still a great effort nonetheless. I was hoping they were about to create a sequel, and namely a multiplayer sequel, a team survival, but I guess not then. Pity to drop it now from the hands who gave it more adult credibility than the last films and games combined.
Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Oct 05, 2015, 07:39:44 AMIndeed. This game wasn't about being the Alien.
QuoteIt was about being hunted by the f**ker!
QuoteIt might have been nice as DLC but it would have been development time away.
QuoteGamers generally like feeling empowered, not hunted down and victimised, precisely because it's an experience.

And arguably, with the 35th anniversary now behind us (with quite an impressive lineup of merch and commemorative events), the series is aiming to go back to the original film, it's lore and atmosphere. The game did precisely that and it's got the fanbase craving more. Ergo, movies. Look for a sequel in about a decade.

Quote from: Ulfer on Oct 06, 2015, 07:20:27 PMIt's different with videogames since it's another experience. Of course, I'd still expect originality from an "Alien Isolation 2" kind of game, but not of the same kind than the originality I expect from the future movies. But I assume that my position is not really shared by many "fans" here. I'm quite cautious about the "Alien 5" project about these matters and concerning other franchises, Star Wars for example, I've a similar opinion : to sum it up, the problem is that what the fans want can often be the reverse of what the new movie would need to be really original or even better.

QuoteYou're certainly not alone there, man.
Quote from: Samus007 on Oct 05, 2015, 12:51:52 PMThis is heartbreaking news. I really really loved Isolation. I have played thru it several times on 3 different difficulties. I was really looking forward to seeing where Amanda's story went via Creative Assembly's control. I know that there is always hope that one day, X amount of years from now, we might get a sequel. But if it never happens, I hope to see maybe Dark Horse comics, or a Novel, pick up where her story left off at the end of Isolation and continue on. What ship came by and picked her up? How and when does she meet McClaren? What's he like? Does she really end up dying of cancer or was Burke full of BS? #AmandaLivesOn
