Yager Will Eat Broken Glass, Then Make Spec Ops: The Line 2


There’s no denying it, Spec Ops: The Line was a great shooter set in a dust-stormed terrorist-claimed Dubai which is quickly becoming a cult classic after its less than stellar launch and sales figures. Spec Ops: The Line was a third-person modern military shooter designed to challenge players’ morality by putting them in the middle of unspeakable situations.

Today as we browsed Twitter we noticed a fan asked Spec Ops: The Line’s writer Walt Williams why there’s no sequel in the works. His response? Yager plans to join the circus first:

This is 2017 and we well and truly know that in show business anything is possible. Recently Daniel Craig signed on for another James Bond movie after saying in a post-Spectre interview that he would rather slash his wrists than play Bond again, so who’s to say Yager – who have been busy with the recently released Dreadnought – won’t don the Spec Ops cap again?

It would however require Yager to team with publisher 2K Games again, who seem less than interested in resurrecting the series, but you know what they say: never say never.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed the original Spec Ops: The Line in 2013, giving it 3 stars and saying that it’s “worth a look for tolerant shooter fans looking for an interesting and often overlooked perspective on war”.

Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for all the latest from 2K Games and Yager.
