Announced today was the long-awaited Hotline Miami 2, a sequel to last year’s twisted, genre-bending murder-fest, Hotline Miami. The game is in development by the same team, Dennaton Games (published by Devolver Digital) and will have you stepping into “the murderous minds of several distinct characters.”
The press release given to us about the game indicates that the game will still be very much about clearing areas “floor-by-floor” and using “savage new weapons to satisfy your murder lust.”
Here’s the official description provided by Devolver:
“You’re a murderer. You murder people. Again. And again. How certain you are of your actions and what is, and what is not, real is what you must determine in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, due out later this year from developer Dennaton Games and publisher Devolver Digital.
The epic finale to 2012’s blood-soaked hit follows an escalating level of violence through multiple factions born from the events of the original game — all within the confines of blistering combat, the unmistakable visual style, and another powerful and intense soundtrack that pushes you to the limit and forces you to question your own thirst for blood.”
They’re not kidding about that soundtrack. It still gives me shivers.
Hotline Miami 2 is slated for release this year for PC, Mac and Linux. Check below for the game’s official logo and a handful of screenshots.
