Alpha Protocol 2 is "not something we could do through Kickstarter", says Obsidian

Alpha Protocol 2 isn't going to happen according to Obsidian's Chris Avellone. The studio has just funded Project Eternity through Kickstarter, but Avellone says the same isn't going to happen for an AP sequel.

As Avellone suggests, establishing a new IP through Kickstarter is fine. Trying to produce a sequel is a little different:

"I've tried to let people know that Kickstarter isnít the place for funding someone else's franchise," Avellone said, "Sega owns Alpha Protocol, for example, Dungeons and Dragons is Hasbro. Thatís a different kettle of fish."

"We'd love to do sequels to these games that we've worked on, but that's often not up to us, and it's not something we could do through Kickstarter, really, or I couldnít see how they might be done."


Would anyone like an Alpha Protocol sequel?

The first game was amazing.

AP1 was very bugged, almost unplayable as ''silent assassin'' gameplay style. But also I think that it was the best RPG to date...
I would love to see AP2 xD

I yet have to find the time for this one, the premise sounds just like my thing. I'll probably wait for the next sale though.

Uh, I always play stealth + pistols and dominate the game. Chain Shot and the fact you vanish when an enemy glances your way... The stealth and piostol combo is so powerful it's almost BROKEN. :D

I agree with Jonah, in both comments.

Alpha Protocol was bugged, rushed (despite taking too long) and didn't live up to the amazing premise... but what a premise! A James Bond spy RPG where you could play any style you wanted, from the smooth-talking womanizer to the more action-orientated killer. Will play again, certainly. Deep shame SEGA didn't even allow Obsidian to patch it properly.
