Talking to Eurogamer, creators Jonatan “Cactus” Söderström and Dennis Wedin hinted at the future of the title when asked about rumoured DLC, suggesting that the next lot of content could be so big it may act as a sequel instead of just an add-on.
“I think we’re going to do quite a big project. It will probably be about as long as the full game, so probably we’ll charge something for it. It will be like a sequel kind of, but building on the story,” says Söderström.
What isn’t mentioned, however, is whether the content will be released separate to Hotline Miami or something not unlike Rockstar’s GTAIV add-on content, so we’ll have to wait and see what comes of this for the time being. Either way, the content may contain a range of new characters related to the original story arc and built within a smaller time frame using the same game engine.
Wedin also mentions the possibility of a map editor, allowing users to create their own maps and stages. So far they’re only looking into that based on fan feedback, so don’t take that as confirmation just yet. Still, it’s certainly would be welcome.
Hotline Miami is also currently slated for a future release on both PlayStation 3 and PSVita, so it will be interesting to see whether any of the above comes across to the new platform to help sell it to a bigger audience.
