The recently revealed Epic Mickey isn’t a stranger to possible expansions already, but going beyond even that, game director Warren Spector reveals he has more Mickey in mind. “I don’t do anything that isn’t extensible,” the Deus Ex mastermind explained, “And I will certainly feel like that I have not done my job if we can’t make other games in this world with these characters. In my head, I’ve got two more planned.”
Does he believe his plans will really happen though? “In the business world of reality, those games have not approved, and who knows if we’ll ever see them. I had 3 games planned for Deus Ex, and you see where that got me.” The game will obviously need to sell well to warrant sequels, and while Epic Mickey looks interesting for now, it’s got a long way to go to success. Sure, the Disney name itself will sell a good few copies, but there are other things to determine such as if it’s actually any good.
We’ll see more of the game soon. Don’t start dreaming about parts 2 and 3 for a while yet though.
