There is no denying that Blood Dragon is F’ing great. Let’s forget for a second the fact that it runs great on the PC (albeit when using higher levels of MSAA under DX11) and focus on the game. Blood Dragon is a tribute to the movies of 80s, does not take itself seriously, and is packed with hours of enjoyment (provided you explore the world map).
Naturally, gamers are already eager for a new part of this 80s mayhem-destroy-them-all-Predators-are-missing-but-who-cares-we-have-dragons game or for a proper sequel to it. And according to Michael Biehn, the game’s creative director, Dean Evans, has already plans for it.
“Dean was with me on the phone last night. He was pretty jacked up. He was going into a meeting today, to you know.. I think he wants to turn it into some sort of franchise. He’s got a sequel in mind.”
Biehn also said that Blood Dragon has been a commercial success product as its sales have exceeded five times the initial expectations of Ubisoft. Yes Ubisoft, we do love fun games.
Here is hoping that Blood Dragon will become a franchise and that Ubisoft won’t mess it up like the Assassin’s Creed series.
