Is 'Turok' Sequel Dead?


Posted January 29, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

The tsunami of layoffs that is sweeping our country has hit Disney. It looks like one casualty is the sequel to last year's Turok first-person shooter. The unannounced game was reportedly in development at Disney's Propaganda studios.

Game blog Kotaku's inside sources say Propaganda Games is laying off approximately 70 employees. "That reduction in workforce is likely closely tied to the cancellation of Turok 2,"  sources say. Turok 2 was one of two projects that Propaganda was working on; the other game remains a mystery, but it presumably won't be affected by the layoffs.

Disney Interactive is reportedly planning to consolidate some game studios, including Avalanche Software and the Fall Line studio. These are development houses responsible for creating games based on Disney properties.

I'm bummed that Turok 2 looks axed. There was always so much possibility with Turok games. They're first-person shooters with dinosaurs! How can it be anything but awesome? And yet, they never seemed to quite live up to what they could have been, so each new Turok title was a fresh chance at that gold ring.
