Should fans expect any type of DK2 announcement/news in the next quarter or two?

At the moment we're focused on the existing titles (DKAS and DK Coop) so for the immediate future expect no news on DK2.

At this point it seems like there won't be a DK2. After assurances that DKAS wouldn't affect DK2 development. After repeatedly being told some info would be coming soon and never coming. Not one bit of info. If DK2 is no longer in development just come out and say it.

First, realize that forums tend to be hostile places for game developers, and a little tact and consideration goes a long way in keeping devs active and talkative rather than full of dread and rage. Second, it's obvious that the devs ran into something unexpected that altered their time table and/or plans. If they had their way, we'd probably either be playing DK2 by now or at least have ample news. Third, yeah, I get why you're assuming the worst--that DK2 isn't being developed.

The rise of indie games, early access, and crowd funding has exposed gamers to more faux pas, development hells, and abandoned projects than ever. There's been some PR breakdown (evidence of the devs being surprised alongside us). That sucks. It's also par for the course, and it makes very little sense for a studio to fill the public in on setbacks or course corrections with a pre-alpha game that's merely been announced. On one hand, you want more information. On the other, you're upset that the small information commitments already made haven't worked out. Somewhat counter-intuitively, strategic vagueness benefits everyone for this very reason. Yes, the balance is tricky, and it's been a little disappointing.

As for DK2 still being on, I don't know. What I do know is that DK1 has been quite successful (~500k Steam sales alone according to https://steamspy.com/app/248610), and so the IP and market have been proven. Personally, I expect that as long as KillHouse is still around, DK2 will come in due time (even if that's a ways off).

DK2 was scrapped, they are going back to submarine games.

DK2 is still in development. We don't like to make announcement and waste time with announcements and updates on stuff that is not ready.

The rest is speculation.

I understand you guys are enthusiastic, but think about it, is there a reason to get angry about a game you didn't pay money for yet? Is there a reason to be mad about what game someone else does in their business to support their family and put food on the table?

And, for the record, no one was being "told repeatedly some info would be coming soon".

We love you guys, we understand frustration that DK2 is not out yet, but let's keep the hate for when the game is out and it sucks, ok?

As being told, DK:TFN (just a long a** name) would come out on early 2018... announcements just tend to distract the eyes of the developers from the actual making of the games. you can see that at Ubisoft mainly... as they keep postponing games cus of early announcements, i guess KH devs tend to keep up some level of hype and some sort of a mist around the title till they'll perfect/make sure the game is ready to launch and not in its early stage... maybe some stuff stuck up the release of the game, who know's, who cares? patience worth it. I saw enough of DK to understand those things take time and in the end, it'll be worth it.

maybe the devs like to keep some sort of a fog ("of war" :lol: :lol: :lol: ) around the title just yet. patience is key! XD


'keep in mind those are speculations only, don't take it for granted'
