Deadly Premonition designer Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro has teased a sequel, and also revealed his hope to release a Director’s Cut of the first game this year.
During his appearance at German event Gamescom last week, SWERY confirmed the original Deadly Premonition team was back together working on a new project to coincide with the 10th anniversary of developer Access Games.
“We’re in talks with publishers at the moment, and we can’t tell you about the platforms,” he said. “But by next summer, I think everyone will have a good idea of what it’s going to be.”
When asked if the next project was in fact a sequel to cult hit Deadly Premonition all that was said was, “Hmm, maybe!”
Also planned and also in need of a publisher is a Director’s Cut for the original Deadly Premonition. “We are planning a Director’s Cut of Deadly Premonition and there will be a proper announcement about that soon,” he said. “I’ve been having a few meetings about that here as well. It’s not finalised yet, but personally I’d like for us to be able to do it during this 10th anniversary year.”
“I am writing some new script and scenarios. Whether those will be used or not, and how they’ll be used, isn’t decided yet,” he added.
So any fans of the original game here? I have to admit the game is in a pile of unfinished titles I need to go through, but one day I will start it!
