I’ve been waiting for a call from Dennaton Games ever since finishing Hotline Miami. At long last, they’ve picked up the phone and announced that Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will be releasing in the third quarter of this year.
That is literally the entirety of the news. TIME TO PAD IT OUT.
This comes via a Tweet on the Hotline Miami Twitter account, which reads: “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will launch in Q3 2014. Act accordingly. #BusinessTalk”. A little later, Devolver Digital clarified that the game would be launching on “PC, Mac, and Linux” on day one (I’m assuming “PC” means “Windows”) with a day one launch for the PS3, PS4, and Vita versions not quite written in stone.
Having played Hotline Miami on the Vita out of a vague sense of “Ooh, that means I can play Hotline Miami anywhere,” I can confirm that I will not be buying Hotline Miami 2 on that system. The controls, they were horrible.
