Pandemic clones itself… sort of

October 23, 2006

Last week saw the release of Destroy All Humans! 2 from Pandemic Studios, which I picked up over the weekend. The success of the DAH “franchise” as I’ll call it for now has apparently created a need for a 2nd Pandemic studio. They sent word that they were launching a 2nd Brisbane based development team and would now focus on building games for the next generation. Presumably this means 360, Wii, and PS3 as they have typically launched games on all available systems.

The only thing that saddens me is that DAH 2 didn’t come out for the 360 and it is currently not on the BC list forcing me to hook up my original Xbox just to play it. Maybe my expectations are too high, but I believe all new Xbox games should also play on the 360.

Not to overshadow the news with a rant, but Pandemic also launched a tongue in cheek website called the [url=]Pandemic World News[/url] that really plays on the humor found in the DAH titles. If you enjoy that sort of thing then head on over.
