Brutal Legend 2 will 'maybe happen some day,' says Schafer

Double Fine founder says he would love to revisit universe

Double Fine founder Tim Schafer has stated he would love to create another game based on the Brutal Legend universe.

Released in 2009, the part action-adventure, part RTS stars Eddie Riggs (voiced by Jack Black), a 'roadie' who is transported to a rock 'n' roll fantasy world where he has to save the human race from their supernatural overlords.


"I love that world and I would love to go back there", the Double Fine founder replied when Gamespot raised the topic of the game during a Broken Age livestream. "And I think [Jack Black] might be up for it, too."

"I would love to go back to that world or even just do a DLC pack," Schafer said. "We're always trying to get Lionwhyte in there, a playable Lionwhyte army. Maybe that would happen someday. I would definitely love to do that."

However, Schafer also explained that the original Brutal Legend cost around $25 million to make and so raising that much again for a sequel "might be tricky".

In CVG's Brutal Legend review, we said: "When it's good, it's simply awesome. For every dull moment there's a blistering set-piece with a brilliantly orchestrated piece of ear-burning metal.

"Or an amazing view to gaze at on the world map. Or a celebrity cameo to snigger at (including Lemmy, Ozzy and Jack Black's partner Kyle from Tenacious D). Or just something else to laugh at."
