Michael Biehn Dishes on the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Sequel
We had the chance to sit down with the great Michael Biehn recently to talk about all things badass, and of course the subject of Ubisoft's latest game which he does the voice acting for, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, came up. So what does Biehn know about a possible sequel? Read on!
Below is a quick excerpt! Look for the whole interview tomorrow!
Regarding a possible sequel Biehn said, "I don't know anything. If they do a sequel, that is [Creative Director] Dean [Evans]' decision. For all I know it might not have anything to do with me, and he might make a completely different game. I had thought I heard someone say something about a sequel, but I really don't know anything about it, which means if there was one, then I don't know if I would be involved. I don't know anything about what the subject matter would be or what it would be like. He never discussed with me about a sequel. I just kind of overheard someone talking about it actually, and it was probably a conversation I shouldn't have heard."
Biehn continues, "So I don't know if there is going to be a sequel or not. A couple of game sites have come out and said there is going to be a sequel, and I am quoted as saying there is going to be a sequel. I probably shouldn't have said that from just overhearing what someone else was talking about while we were doing the voice-over work. I could be totally wrong about that."
