Speaking to GameSpot at PAX, Capps said Polish dev studio People Can Fly, which put together the original FPS romp, has since been moved to a more suitable project.

"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," he explained. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon."

As for Bulletstorm, the Epic exec said it's a franchise he's interested in returning to but remarked that the PC version suffered poor sales due to piracy and the quality of the port.

"I'd love to go back [to Bulletstorm]," he said. "I think there's more to do with Bulletstorm. Heck, it kind of ended wanting more. I'd love to see another project, but right now we don't have anything to talk about."

"We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."
