One soon is not likely. EA canned the developer and the recent movie was a flop. I bet they let the IP rest for a year.


What? The movie did like 130 million which was more than twice it's budget. It did good.

The move made $42.9M on a budget of $66M in the US, including a paltry $17.8M opening weekend. Shamu would be proud of the splash made by that flop.

The foreign market made much more, with China accounting for $66M of the $159M from foreign markets.

Still, US movie studios look at the US numbers when considering sequels. When a movie doesn't make even 2/3 of the budget back domestically, it is considered a failure regardless of the foreign receipts.

Just look at Prince of Persia, Pacific Rim (which I LOVE), Waterworld, After Earth, John Carter, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. All profitable when considering the worldwide gross, but all considered flops because they tanked in the US when compared to budget. Pacific Rim is the only one with a chance of a sequel, and even then it is likely that it will have to be done as an independent film because the studio may not back it. This summer's Godzilla will help determine that.

ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.
