GDC: Checking in with the Hotline Miami sequel

0

Parallel plots and an appearance by Jacket

While it's encouraging to see Hotline Miami break out onto further platforms with an upcoming PlayStation Network release for PS3 and Vita, I'm mostly just eager to hear more about the follow-up game that has briefly been talked about before. This week at the Game Developers Conference, Dennaton Games told Joystiq that this sequel will "[tackle] the more touchy-feely aspects of the early 90s" and feature "parallel plots built around the first game."

The outlet was also told that the first title's nameless protagonist (or "Jacket," depending on how into Hotline Miami you were) will make an appearance, but he won't be playable.

It's possible that Hotline Miami's successor will see a simultaneous release on PC and PlayStation Vita, which would of course be excellent if Dennaton can pull off the feat. Either way, this is said to mark the end of the studio's run for the series. "It's the grand finale, for us," said Dennis Wedin.
