They'll "continue the story" of the weird and intense Zeno Clash but only when they feel that "time is right" for the studio. Ace now uses Unreal Engine 3.
The reason there's no immediate work on Zeno Clash 2? "...we realized it was a mistake to immediately go down that way if we were going to establish ourselves as a new game development studio," said Ace Team's Andres Bordeu.
"We don’t want to be one of those companies that is known for a single title, especially when we have so many creative people that can explore new concepts. Actually, we’re currently in very early stages of another title that also isn’t Zeno Clash 2 (it’s too early to say anything about it yet though)." Rock of Ages is a huge departure from Zeno Clash.
"Still, we don’t plan on forgetting our first title and we will continue the story and deliver a great new Zeno Clash experience–but when the time is right. When that happens people will see that again we’ll present something fresh that stands out and it will not be just more of the same," concluded Bordeu. Check out the Rock of Ages trailer below.
