Criterion's much hyped and ultimately pretty OK first-person shooter Black may not be getting a sequel from its original creators soon—they're busy making Burnout and Need For Speed—but its original designer is getting back into the FPS game.


Stuart Black, senior design on that PlayStation 2 and Xbox shooter, has landed at developer Codemasters, reports CVG, who calls him the "mastermind" behind that first-person shooter. Black and company are said to be hard at work on a new shooter at Codemasters, one that CVG ties to a reveal in the Official Xbox Magazine in the UK.

There's also some not so subtle hinting that Black's follow-up to Black would be akin to the Perfect Dark as follow up to Goldeneye from Rare. Are you ready for hype levels at code black?

I actually really enjoyed Black back in the days. I loved how the game constantly blinded you with dust clouds and forced you to shoot blindly at your enemies. Made for some pretty intense firefights.

Somehow, I seem to remember them promising a sequel back then. I've been waiting for it for so long now that I doubt it's ever going to happen :(
