Fuse has been sort of a bomb critically and most certainly will be the same commercially, but Insomniac has more Fuse experiences planned.
They own the Fuse IP and not a third-party publisher so they have mentioned that they are free to take it into any direction they please. The studio is also planning to make the IP into a franchise.
“For those of you who dig what we do with crazy worlds, characters and weapons…for those of you who check out Fuse and enjoy a co-op romp through a very “Insomniac” game, this is what I have to say: we’re just getting started,” Insomnaic Games CEO Ted Price wrote on their site.
“We’ve already begun expanding what we’ve begun with Fuse. Right now as I write this we’re taking the core concepts behind Fuse and prototyping new stuff…stuff that leverages this bizarre alien substance which is at the heart of the game. No, I’m not talking about DLC. I’m talking about new Fuse experiences altogether.
“What’s wonderful about creating and owning one’s IP is that you can take it any direction you want. And that’s what we’re going to do. Stay tuned.”
You kind of feel bad for them, don’t you? It seems they have no idea what they are doing but if Fuse turns out be a hit commercially then their thinking is justified.
