Creative Assembly discusses the idea for a sequel to Alien Isolation on a daily basis, lead game designer Gary Napper has revealed, stating that if a sequel does get greenlit, he would like it to place a greater emphasis on the player’s interaction with the environment while sticking “to the same terrifying single Alien approach”.

“The plot for a sequel is a daily topic in the studio sometimes,” Napper told AvPGalaxy. “People have their own ideas for where it should go, our writers have some solid concepts and yes, we do have a great opportunity to continue her story.”

“I think the action oriented ‘Aliens’ style game is very different from what Isolation is,” he continued. “If we made a sequel I would like to stick to the same terrifying single Alien approach but do more with the environment and interactivity within it.”

Alien Isolation left Steve impressed when it launched back in October, praising Creative Assembly for having “finally nailed the true horror of Alien in video game form.”

“There were hundreds of comments supporting us and the game we made and this was heart-warming for us,” Napper added. “We all put so much effort in to deliver this vision of the alien that it was great to see people react in such a positive way.”
