Majesco is still committed to Advent.

The following is taken from the January issue of Official Xbox Magazine (OXM).

To Be Continued...?

I was wondering whether you knew anything about an Advent Rising sequel. I think it’s one of the best Xbox games ever and the ending (er endings) really left me hanging. So for peace of mind, I would like to know whether or not there’s a sequel in the works.
-David Sianissian

We Say: You’re not the only Advent Rising fan, David. We dug the kinetic and story-driven action that GlyphX’s debut effort delivered, and the developer has always gone on record saying that the game was planned as the first of a trilogy. Unfortunately, Majesco wouldn’t go on record specifically addressing the future of the Advent series. What a representative for the company did say was, “While Majesco is currently focused on their new upcoming titles for 2006...we remain committed to our existing, originally developed intellectual properties including Advent Rising and Bloodrayne, but are not ready to make any announcements at this time.”

Thanks to Soma Holiday from the Majesco boards for the info.

Advent wins Best of 2005 award from IGN...

OK, so I'm being a bit over the top with the headline... Advent Rising won the award for Best Original Soundtrack on the Xbox for 2005 from IGN.

Pretty amazing effort for the soundtrack to shine through on a game that was NOT much appreciated by the critics.

Xbox Best Original Score -
Advent Rising
