Bastion was perhaps the biggest small game of 2011, as the
indie title took many players on a wild (heavily narrated ride) ride. We ranked
the clever title as one of the best downloadable games of the last year,
and it seems many agreed with us. After launching on PC and 360 this summer,
the creators revealed they’ve sold 500,000 copies, but that doesn’t necessarily
mean there’ll be a sequel, as one interview revealed.
Speaking with Eurogamer,
Supergiant Games' Greg Kasavin spoke about how liberating the big sales were, “Bastion
has performed well enough to give us the resources to create another game on
our own terms, meaning we can self-fund the project and take the time we need
to get it right.” Kasavin was pretty quiet on what that next thing would be, but don't assume it's Bastion 2. “We always intended for Bastion to be a stand-alone game," he mentioned, though he didn’t dismiss the possibility of something new in the Bastion
universe at some point.
As exciting as news of a new title from
Supergiant is, don’t expect a reveal any time soon. Kasasvin pointed out that
Bastion was in development for a year before it was shown, and thanks to
Bastion’s continued success, they currently can afford to take their time. We
just hope whatever that new game is still has a dynamic narrator.
UPDATE: Our friendly friends at Supergiant were quick to mention via Twitter that, "It's too early to say what's next for us." So we altered this story accordingly.
