Hotline Miami 2 Delayed, Its New Number: Late 2014 or Early 2015
Dennaton Games has announced that the sequel to its top-down, breakthrough indie game has been pushed back to a late 2014 or early 2015 release.
Based on a recent tweet on the game's official Twitter, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number's release has been pushed back to either the end of the year or to the beginning of the next. Unfortunately, Dennaton did not specify as to why these delays were made. As long as Hotline Miami 2 is just as good as its predecessor, we're fine with this delay.
Hotline Miami 2 takes place both before and after the events of the original game. There will be multiple, intertwining stories focusing on a group of different characters, who are all influenced in various ways by Jacket's war against the Russian mob. Now, we get to play as a police detective, a redneck who hates the Russian mob, a mobster gone rogue, Jacket's vigilante fans and a brutal serial killer. These new characters each have their own unique ability, such as a rolling dodge, dual wielding guns, using a chainsaw, etc.
Whether it's in late 2014 or early 2015, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is set to launch for PC, PS Vita, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
