Sega rules out plans for Alpha Protocol sequel

July 6, 2010

This will be the first and only time we see Mike Thorton in action

Sega West Boss Mike Hayes told CVG about his plans with recently released Alpha Protocol and they don’t look good:

Sega West president Mike Hayes told CVG that the game didn’t sell as well as the publisher expected – but that the firm was proud of the “concept” of the title.

“Let’s speak very commercially; the game hasn’t sold what we’ve expected, therefore we won’t be doing a sequel,” said Hayes.

“The concept was brilliant, though,” he added. “You know this whole thing with Metacritic where you have to be in the high 70s to mid-80s minimum [to have any success] – well, with RPGs you have got to be in the late 80s.

It’s a shame, really, especially since Western RPGs have been all the rage, but I guess Spy fiction isn’t as compelling comercially as space exploration as Mass Effect has demonstrated.
