I'm a sceptic, but hey, fingers crossed that it's true. Would an Oct release even be possible?
I e-mailed cduniverse about them advertising MAG 2 for sale with a 1st Oct release and asked if it was a mistake.
I got this reply.
Thank you for your email.
According to our suppliers that is the current release date set for the item but it can change. We will update the site if we get new information.
Please feel free to email me if you need further assistance.
It still seems fishy to me to be taking pre-orders on an unannounced game. Would suppliers know a game is coming out this far in advance?
Basically Zipper the creators of MAG have been unofficially shutdown. By this I mean no one has confirmed it but the scale of the rumours seem far too strong to be wrong. The company has had problems with Socom and a Vita title was never going to generate serious cash. With zipper down MAG2 is very unlikely.
Hopefully sony will see people want MAG2 and give the rights to the game up for sale, so someone else can create it, I really hope so.
I tweeted Dunham about MAG sales and if they were good enough to warrant a sequel. In his reply he stated probably not, because they were not working on MAG 2, so unless another group of Dev's decide to pick up the ball we won't see a sequel.
