Nightdive Studios have offered an update on their upcoming remaster of Turok 2: Seeds of Evil.
Originally released on the N64 in 1998, and 1999 on the PC, the FPS pitted players against an alien force known as the Primagen while taking on the role of the titular Turok.
With a remastered release of the first game in the series, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, at the end of last year, fans have eagerly awaited the well-received sequel to also receive the remaster treatment.
In the update the studio assures fans that development is underway, and has been since the first remaster shipped, but there are complications due to it being a larger game with “more enemies, more weapons, more locations” as well as multiplayer.
Also citing “contractual obligations” limiting their transparency, the studio nonetheless promises “the most authentic experience at the highest quality level available” when the game is deemed finished.
Until then, rest assured the sequel is being worked on and will be ready when it’s ready. When last we saw the series before these remasters, it was the lukewarm 2008 reboot entitled Turok whose own sequel was canned. Nightdive’s remasters seem to be doing us a favor and helping us forget that ill-fated shooter, and for that we can be thankful.
