No New Geometry Wars Titles on the Horizon
Perhaps the first great Xbox Live Arcade game, Geometry Wars, has received a lot of love from fans over the years. Bizarre is well aware that fans would very much like to see a new entry in the series, but the developer wants to avoid oversaturating the market.
"Its just a great thing having titles that people love, that they associate with our studio -- and Geometry Wars is one of them," Bizarre level designer Peter Collier told VideoGamer. "Its very close to a lot of fans hearts. I guess its just one of those things, that its a great and very proud feeling having something that the fans adore so much, but we dont want to oversaturate it by carrying on with it. Its may be something that we keep as something we love, and move on to other things, you know?"
Its an admirable position when Bizarre could almost certainly cash-in quite easily with a new Geometry Wars title. There have been more GW games that one might realize; besides the two Retro Evolved games, there has also been Geometry Wars: Galaxies on both Wii and DS, Evolved on mobile phones, and Waves, which was included in Project Gotham Racing 4.
Fortunately, this doesnt mean Bizarre will never develop a new GW game under any circumstances; as Collier said, "Theres nothing on the current horizon, but we cant rule anything out."
