Hotline Miami has been something of a cult hit, and fans are already clamoring for more. Creators Jonatan Soderstrom and Dennis Wedin have mentioned downloadable content before, but recently shared more details on the scope and timing of the project.
"We don't want to reveal too much, but it will probably have more playable characters than the first game did," Soderstrom told Eurogamer. "And a couple of different stories and angles. It will probably be about as long as the full game, so probably we'll charge something for it. It will be like a sequel kind of, but building on the story." He said he's unsure when it will be ready, but they're hoping that having the engine finished means it will be a much faster process.
Meanwhile, Wedin added that they might include another much-requested feature. "A lot of people have been asking about a map editor to build their own stages, so we're looking at if it's possible to do that," he said. "I think it would be really cool to let people do their own stages."
The game is currently available on PC for $9.99. The developer is still in talks with Sony about bringing the game to the PlayStation 3 or Vita.
