Insomniac head hints at 'new Fuse experiences' (that's not DLC)

Fuse is out today, but Insomniac seems intent on making it a full-blown franchise. CEO Ted Price wrote today about the history of its development after its transition from Overstrike, and said that the series is "just getting started."
In a lengthy essay, Price used the game's Shattergun as an example of why the game went into a darker direction. He says he knows some people won't be convinced by the switch, but others will try Fuse and love it. For those who appreciate the game, he noted, there's more to come.
"We've already begun expanding what we've begun with Fuse," Price wrote. "Right now as I write this we're taking the core concepts behind Fuse and prototyping new stuff... stuff that leverages this bizarre alien substance which is at the heart of the game. No, I'm not talking about DLC. I'm talking about new Fuse experiences altogether. What's wonderful about creating and owning one's IP is that you can take it any direction you want."
That certainly sounds like a direct sequel, but we'll have to wait for more details. Our review concluded that this first entry was fine, but lacked some of Insomniac's personality. Hopefully the studio will continue to iterate on the foundation already built.
