The lights are on
According to the president of Epic Games, Mike Capps, Bulletstorm didn't make a profit. However, the publisher isn't regretting the project.
The joint project by Epic and People Can Fly "didn't make money for us," said Capps speaking with Kotaku.Instead of mourning the lack of profit, Capps is happy that the company green-lit something different, instead of cashing in on another Gears of War entry.
"The studio has shipped AAA content," he said. "The next thing we do with People Can Fly will be great."
We loved Bulletstorm, and can't wait to see what comes of future collaborations. Hopefully the game will still reward players for groin shots.

I liked Bulletstorm. I'm a little surprised.
I thought that Bulletstorm was a great, balls to the wall, insanely fun shooter, but people took to seriously when it came to the humor and controversy that surrounded it. Bulletstorm was meant to be your typical FPS like COD or Battlefield but more of an homage to old shooters like Duke Nukem, Doom, or its predcessor Painkiller. It was overlooked by many but I hope it still warrants a sequel to one most original shooters to come out within the last couple of years.
Bulletstorm was a great campaign. Hopefully they'll get to make a sequel with zany co-op skillshots for the campaign.
Shame it didn't make a profit. I had a lot of fun playing this game with my friends!
Its nice to know that some people care,... u know?
