The lights are on
One of this generation's strangest and most beloved cult hits may get a sequel.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Deadly Premonition designer Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro says his team at Access Games is working on a new project that should be revealed by next summer.
While no concrete hints were dropped as to what this next game could be, Swery did talk about what he'd like to do with a Deadly Premonition sequel. And it doesn't just sound like wishful thinking on his part. He's discussing it with the team.
"I meet once a month with the producer of Deadly Premonition and we talk
about various things," he said. "There are things I've come up with the producer
has said no to. I suggested Deadly Premonition 2 should be as though
Deadly Premonition 1 had never existed. I wanted to do everything from
scratch, but the producer said I couldn't do that. So, for example, like with Spider-Man, you've got Spider-Man and the
Amazing Spider-Man, so the same series but a different world. I wanted
to do something like that but was told no. The producer said the fans
love York, and so I have to carry on with him as the protagonist."
To coincide with Access Games' 10th anniversary, a Director's Cut of Deadly Premonition is in the works and should be released this year. Swery says this version could include new scenarios.

I loved this game.
There haven't been enough good Horror games lately. I haven't played the first one yet, but hopefully it, and the sequel, will help put Horror games back on the map.
I'm still waiting for the Director's Cut version to be released so I can finally play this game. ^_^
Lol, man this game helped define this generation for me.
okay feel read see video miss
I love the idea of having DP2 as though DP1 had never existed. Bring back agent York each time but come up with new stories and settings. Have it be like the Legend of Zelda.
Fun Fact: This was the first time Deadly Premonition and The Legend of Zelda have had the slightest of comparisons
Definitely one of my favorite videogame stories ever. I want a sequel, it would be hard to top the story but not the gameplay.
I'd be all for a Deadly Premonition sequel!
Oh, great. Thanks for encouraging him; you ironical bastards.
As long as the sequel has another scene of the guy eating the "Sinner's Sandwich" (seriously, for those who don't know, google it)
Dying for the ps3 version to come out. I can get over the gameplay is story is good enough. While Heavy Rain's gameplay wasnt bad, I am just not a fan of qte. But i was so enraptured by the story I couldnt stop playing it
