The sequel to the super sweary zombie killer House Of The Dead Overkill is in development, according to a fresh report.
Nintendo Life sources claim that a title codenamed House Of The Dead Overkill 2 is 'well underway' and will be released in 2011.
Sega has refused to comment on what it considers to be rumour and speculation, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see a sequel being released.
Last year, House Of The Dead Overkill producer Neil McEwan told ONM that he'd be interested in making a sequel. "I think we could even go further with it. And we've already got ideas what we can do and where our characters go from here."
When asked if a sequel was on the way, he said: "I can't really say but when we were working on our characterisation for Agent G and Washington we gave them a backstory and because we feel a lot of love for these characters we worked out where they went after Overkill. So there's definitely still scope in the Overkill universe."
House Of The Dead Overkill 2 would be a welcome addition to the 2011 Wii release schedule which already includes Kirby's Epic Yarn and The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword. ONM gave the original 90% in the mag's House Of The Dead: Overkill review and rate it as the best zombie game on Wii.
