When Tim Schafer sat down for a Q&A with Jack Black, it was probably inevitable that someone would ask about Brutal Legend 2. Instead, someone screamed it at them both.

Schafer first apologised if the panel gave anyone the impression that the game was about to be announced, dashing the hopes of anyone who might have dared to hope that their coming together would lead to a Brutal Legend 2 announcement.

He did go on to say that “someday we’ll make that game” – adding that Brutal Legend 2 was the studio’s most expensive game, costing $25 million to develop, and that raising that kind of money (or more) for a sequel would be tricky.
