There will be no Brutal Legend 2

Did you think Brutal Legend was a promising, if flawed, game that could have ironed out its problems in a sequel? Well if so, you’ve been DENIED! Double Fine has confirmed what many of us suspected, that Brutal Legend 2 would not be happening. The news was let slip in passing while Double Fine talked about future projects, so if you missed that, be aware that this is the dismal situation.

Electronic Arts passed on the sequel, indicating that the original probably didn’t sell too well despite considerable hype and the involvement of Hollywood Popple Jack Black. Of course, since Double Fine is already working on four brand new games, there’s plenty to look forward to from Schafer and crew. 

As far as Brutal Legend goes, though, I totally blame Nick “6.0” Chester. It’s like he hates all videogames or something.
