As we slowly trudge our way toward the Spike Video Game Awards, incessant speculation and rudderless gossip runs rampant. The latest biggie is the appearance of a "Murder Your Maker" teaser site featuring the back of a bald man's head. Mysterious.
The site's registered to Activision, and a fair few chaps believe that it's leading towards the announcement of Prototype 2. It's as good a guess as any, considering the game's protagonist, Alex Mercer, does a fair amount of murdering and has a very literal connection to the word "Maker."
While right now this is a case of people jumping to conclusions, we're definitely overdue an announcement. Prototype sold pretty damn decently when it was released last year, definitely enough to justify a sequel. We all know Activision well enough by now to understand that if a sequel can get made, a sequel will get made.
A few weeks ago I actually asked Activision about a potential Prototype sequel but got a general "Nothing to announce at this time" line. All I'll say is that I'd f*cking love a new Prototype, so yes please.
