According to lead game designer Gary Napper of developer, the plot to a potential sequel to Alien: Isolation is "a daily topic" at the studio, with writers playing around with "solid concepts".
Should they go ahead with a sequel to Isolation then they'd be sticking with the "same terrifying single Alien approach" and not go all action with a marine squad, like the films did.
"The plot for a sequel is a daily topic in the studio sometimes," Napper toldin an interview. "People have their own ideas for where it should go, our writers have some solid concepts and yes, we do have a great opportunity to continue her story."
"I think the action oriented 'Aliens' style game is very different from what Isolation is," he said. "If we made a sequel I would like to stick to the same terrifying single Alien approach but do more with the environment and interactivity within it."
There still seems to be no movement on any mod tools for Isolation, although the development team is 'flattered' the community are still requesting a free roam mode without enemies to tour the station.
