We were just told to temper our expectations!
In case you haven’t heard, the Sega Ages re-release line is done. That’s bad! But apparently, M2 isn’t done collaborating with Sega. That’s good!
In a hilarious turn of events, directly following a statement to Game Watch from a Sega creative producer that he can’t confirm whether or not M2 is working with Sega on an upcoming project: we get direct confirmation from the M2 Twitter account that something is brewing. For reference, M2 is not owned by Sega, and is a go-to developer for many retro re-releases for several publishers.
In response to this lovely fan art for M2 from Twitter user Tracker, M2 replied with the following statement: “Thank you for the great art, and your continued support! While we have concluded the Sega Ages series with Herzog Zwei, we are expecting further collaboration between M2 and Sega. Please stay tuned, and we wish you AGES of fun!”
In case that it wasn’t clear that M2 isn’t coming back with that very coy statement from Sega, the studio’s Twitter account may have spilled the beans. I’ll take what I can get!
