The chances of Black, Criterion’s cult favorite PS2/Xbox shooter, getting a sequel are zero, says creator Stuart Black.
“To me it’s kind of like a band,” the developer explained in OPM. “When we made Black there were certain people, key members of the team, who formed the core band. There are a lot of those people that are working with us now, but there are others who aren’t.”
“Even if we wanted to, we couldn’t make Black 2 in exactly that way, because those people aren’t there.”
The current project Black was referring to is Codemasters’ destructive first-person shooter Bodycount; probably the next best thing to a Black 2.
