"Right now we don't have any plans for Geometry Wars 3 or anything," said Bizarre Creations' Gareth Wilson during the Kotaku Talk Radio podcast, and all that could be heard afterwards were the relentless sobs of millions of disappointed fans.


Gareth took delivering the news in stride, but fans who played the original Geometry Wars and its sequel obsessively, myself included, felt as if a million voices all cried out at once, and then were silenced. Couldn't they just - I don't know - stop working on Blur and work on Geometry Wars 3 instead? I'm sure Activision wouldn't mind.

There is one small bit of hope. Gareth continued, "That doesn't mean that at some point (Geometry Wars designer) Stephen (Cakebread) won't have a genius moment and will start working on it, but right now Stephen is working on all sorts of other projects."

Other projects? What could possibly be more important? Is he curing cancer? Solving world hunger?



Geometry Wars 2 published by Microsoft when Bizarre Creations was owned by Microsoft. Therefore, it's safe to assume Microsoft might own the IP.

Being as Bizarre is no longer owned by Microsoft, and that Microsoft likely owns the IP, there is a very real chance that Bizarre Creations may have nothing to do with future Geometry Wars games. Microsoft could very well be having some other developer working on the title right now for all we, and Bizarre Creations, know if MS owns the IP.
