I think a big part of a sequel would be choosing which characters return from the OG.
Personally, I’d like to see Evolve 2, if ever one, have 3 tiers full of completely new characters and take place a few years in the future after maybe a couple dozen planets in the Far Arm have been taken out and now, for the first time, monsters have been found within HUB.
What naturally happens is that a whole subdivision of the Planet Taming Corp. has been formed(and now is managed by Parnell, maybe). There are individual chapters of this smaller “Invasive and Destructive Alien Control Corp” or IDAC.
The gear utilized by the characters in Evolve 1 have all been standardized and produced by IDACC(or whatever it might be). So the “Salveron Healing Grenade Launcher” is now an specifically manufactured by IDACC or perhaps contracted out to Salveron, but it is still specifically for monster hunting now. Another example might be that the wacky junkyard tech made by Jack, such as the repulsor, has now been improved and produced on an industrial level. There might even be repulsor drones and repulsor traps.
This gives the devs the excuse to reuse equipment ideas on new characters.
So now that we got new characters, what do we do with the old ones?
Make them DLC of course(bar the monsters, I think Goliath will always need to be the first monster).
People will spend fortunes to play their favorite old characters, even if they have new gear. Or, better yet, we could have adaptations of these new characters that ARE the old characters(because they have similar gear). And yes, I see that you have a lot of the old characters as DLC, which is cool.
But this brings me back to my final point and something I teased to earlier when I said Parnell might lead IDACC…
[TL;DR starts here]
I think characters should die. If I could chose one person to die it would be Cabot. Then after that probably Griffin and Lennox. But point is not everyone should survive. So the question is, who?
If only 5 characters could return in Evolve 2, who do you think should(or would survive the first wave)?
- Maggie and Daisy
- Maggie Only
- Daisy Only
Bucket was taken out because he is immortal and would return confirmed
not actually confirmed bucket would return, but technically if anyone survives, so does Bucket.
Now that I said that, Matthew will find a way to kill only Bucket
