Over on the Goldhawk Forums,
Xenonauts project lead Chris England is raising everybody’s hopes for
Xenonauts 2. His language is tentative but promising. “We’re still
evaluating the possibility,” he says, “But I’d say the chances of us
making Xenonauts 2 as our next game are better than even.”
Apparently
community feedback has helped to convince the team to make a sequel,
but it’s still possible that they might go in a different direction. The
codebase they’ve been working on in the time since releasing Xenonauts
would work for any “squad-based tactics game” they want, so it’s
possible their next game will tell a new story in the same genre.
However,
it does look like they’ve been doing a lot of thinking about Xenonauts,
for instance testing a 3D art style, redesigning the aliens from the
first game, and considering whether they’re able to create a new
strategy layer. England says that at this stage the team is “actively
designing and prototyping” Xenonauts 2, but it’ll probably be one or two
months until we know for sure whether they’ll commit to it as their
next project.

(Thanks, RPS.)
