Charles Cecil, founder of Revolution Software, has said that if the recent Director's Cut of Broken Sword for DS and Wii do well then more are likely.
He reveals that he and Dave Gibbons have been "throwing ideas around" and a new Beneath a Steel Sky game is "probably going to happen at some point." Moment hasn't arrived yet.
If the remakes of the classic games prove popular then the team "will explore new ways of maybe doing Director's Cuts of other Broken Swords, or Beneath a Steel Sky, or new Broken Swords or new adventures", Cecil tells .
He's upbeat at the chances for a new entry to Steel Sky. "I think there's a very good chance of that. Dave Gibbons (of Watchmen fame) and I have talked about it for so long now. One of the huge advantages was when the game could no longer be played, because it was originally written in DOS it pretty much disappeared."
"Dave is very busy at the moment and we're very busy at the moment. There will be a point at which we come together and go, right, we've been talking about this for so long, we're going to actually do something. That moment hasn't come yet, but it will happen at some point I'm sure."
"Dave and I even started throwing ideas around at one point. It's probably going to happen at some point. It is a successful brand, people are very passionate about it, it's fun and it would be great to work with Dave again," concluded Revolution's Cecil.
Does talk of a new Beneath a Steel Sky, or its remakes, get you fired up? Revolution Software sure hopes it does. The original Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars is arriving on DS and Wii as a Director's Cut.
