Deadly Premonition director teases 'surprising and amazing' news this year

Taunts fans with promise of new announcements in 2013

Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka Suehiro (aka SWERY) has teased fans with the promise of 'surprising and amazing news' this year.


Deadly Premonition launched on Xbox 360 back in 2010. It's a bizarre paranormal open-world RPG of sorts, in which you take control of special agent Francis York Morgan to investigate a murder as you get psychic messages from cups of coffee and periodically slip into a demonic underworld full of monsters.

In a recent Blog post, Suehiro said, "To all my fans, who keep giving me their never-ending support... I think I'll have some surprising and amazing news for you next year," referring to the year 2013 (translation via Siliconera).

The director was reported to have told press at Gamescom in August 2011 that he was busy "working on different types of Deadly Premonition-related projects", even going so far as to say he was "trying to think of ways to create a sequel" and that "a prequel is also definitely on the table".

Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut - an enhanced version of the Xbox original - will be released for PS3 in March, but nothing has been said of a sequel/prequel since those 2011 reports.
