Sadly, plans for a sequel to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West have been thrown out of the window.

Speaking in the latest issue of Edge, Ninja Theory’s Tameem Antoniades revealed that there was plans for the developer to be split into two teams, with one working on the upcoming Devil May Cry reboot and the other working on the Enslaved sequel. But it sadly wasn’t to be.

“Enslaved should have done better,” he admitted. “Right now we should have been doing a sequel and perfecting that sequel and doing what franchises do, which is get better over time.

“[But] because that didn’t happen we’ve not expanded to two teams like we intended to. So we’ve remained a smaller shop. But now we get another chance with DMC.”

This will be sad news for many, particularly as publisher Namco Bandai said a sequel could happen earlier this year, despite the poor sales which saw the game only managing to sell a disappointing 730,000 copies as of May 2011.
