'Spec Ops: The Line' Writer Says Team 'Would Eat Broken Glass' Before Making a Sequel
It sounds like working on Spec Ops: The Line wasn't all sunshine and puppies. Responding to a person on Twitter recently, writer Walt Williams says the third-person military shooter won't get a sequel "because it was a brutal, painful development and everyone who worked on it would eat broken glass before making another. Also it didn't sell."

Williams later adds this is mostly hyperbole, of course. "There's only so many times I can say 'It didn't sell; we moved on.'" Although the game was a financial disappointment, it was generally well-received by critics and won several awards for its story. If you want to learn more about Spec Ops' troubled development, Williams candidly talks about it in a new book called Significant Zero. (Thanks, PC Gamer!)
