Namco: no plans for Enslaved sequel, still behind franchise

While Ninja Theory’s Enslaved was a hit with the critics, the game’s sales were disappointing. That hasn’t deterred Namco Bandai from supporting the game, though, as they are “still very much behind” the title.

This comes from the publisher’s UK marketing manager Lee Kirton, who, speaking in a recent podcast with Eurogamer, also stated that they currently have no plans for a sequel. He added that they’ve got plans to “keep pushing [Enslaved]… maybe to a market that hasn’t experienced it yet.”

Kirton also noted that the game’s disappointing sales comes from the fact that it was released at a wrong time. It has sold 730,000 units worldwide, according to Namco’s recent financials.
