Bethesda may be looking into developing sequels of their two hits: Rage and The Evil Within.
In an interview with Finder, vice-president of Bethesda Pete Hines revealed that these two titles have received an incredible amount of interest.
“I can’t talk about the unannounced stuff and what we may or may not do. I get myself in trouble whenever I do that. Even when we were talking about the Morrowind Remaster, if I come out and say, ‘I just don’t think that is going to happen,’ then people freak out. So I won’t confirm or deny stuff we may or may not do, as people jump to the wrong conclusions. But I do think both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that we could make sequels. Personally I loved Rage and had a tonne of fun playing it, but we have a lot of stuff in the pipeline right now so you will have to wait and see.”
Despite receiving average scores on Metacritic, both Rage and The Evil Within sold significantly well. The Evil Within went on to set the record for the best-selling new horror survival IP before being beaten by Dying Light in 2015.
The Evil Within was released on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC in 2014. Rage was released on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC in 2011.
