"would love to go back" to the Brutal Legend universe, and he thinks Jack Black "might be up for it, too," the well-known actor and musician behind the lead role.
It cost around $25 million, and ponying up that kind of cash for an entire sequel "might be tricky," admits Schafer, but he'd love to return "even just do a DLC pack".
Eddie Riggs was the roadie turned saviour of heavy metal in Brutal Legend, which was an open world action adventure with occasional (and irksome) tower-defense.
"I love that world and I would love to go back there. And I think Jack might be up for it, too," Tim Schafer told . "I would love to go back to that world or even just do a DLC pack...we're always trying to get Lionwhyte in there; a playable Lionwhyte army," he said. "Maybe that would happen someday. I would definitely love to do that."
Brutal Legend had a truly legendary cast of well-known artists behind the game's core characters, with Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford voicing Lionwhyte, head of the Hair Metal Militia. Brutal Legend released on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in October of 2009 under EA, and came to PC early last year receiving extensive patches post launch.
No actual sales numbers were disclosed for Brutal Legend, but it unlikely clawed back much if any of its costs.
Tim Schafer would love a 'new game or DLC' for Brutal Legend
