Not a big surprise and many of you may have heard about it yesterday, but Activision announced that Raven is indeed working on an X-Men Legends sequel which has no title as of yet.  Also no word of release date.

Here's the PR:

Quote
Santa Monica, CA – October 21, 2004 – Based on strong consumer response to its action role playing game X-Men Legends, Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that the company is developing a sequel based on the ever-popular Marvel (NYSE: MVL) franchise with Raven Software.  The original game challenges players to master the attributes of their favorite X-Men by creating, customizing and controlling teams of four mutants as they embark on a quest to stop the extinction of mankind.  The title is currently available worldwide for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube™.

“For 40 years Marvel’s X-Men have captivated consumers worldwide and today the brand is stronger than ever,” said Ron Doornink, CEO of Activision Publishing.      “X-Men Legends is already on track to be the best selling game in the franchise’s history.”
   
“We are thrilled with the critical and consumer response to X-Men Legends.   Marvel and Activision are committed to ensuring that the X-Men Legends series will continue to be a top notch game franchise for years to come,” said Ames Kirshen, director of video game development at Marvel.


The first game was quite good, so I would expect the same (or better) from the next one.  Let's hope they put in online co-op too.

I actually don't care if they put co-op in the next one, at least not for more than two players.

I'd like no more levels where you only have one or two people, as those kind of broke up the flow of the game to me.

I always want the ability to play through the game again with my already-leveled characters at higher difficulty levels.

If they do that last thing, I'm in. If not, I'll have to pass on the next one. I've already lost interest with the first one, and a little over a week and a half is not quite satisfactory for me.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great game. It just needs more replay value for  singleplayer.
